It’s no surprise that the Adirondack chair is such a popular project with LJ’s. What else can you build so simply that is also so very comfortable to sit in, sipping a cold one after a long hard day of sore muscles and sawdust.
The Adirondack chair comes with generous seat width, a long properly angled backrest, and wide enough armrests. All these basic features will lift your comfort to the next level. .

You are really going to enjoy using these this summer. We made templates of our Adirondack chair pattern pieces out of luan. Now when we make new ones, it’s easy to trace where to cut on the wood. Our first set, made years and years ago, finally rotted to the point that we had to throw them out, so making a new set is on our spring “to-do” list.
The first one to make an Adirondack chair was an American named Thomas Lee. He made his chair as he was vacationing in Westport, New York in the Adirondack Mountains in 1903. Called “Westport Plank Chair” Lee offered the design to Harry Bunnell who was a carpenter. Bunnell saw the possibility of commercializing the design and got a patent for it in 1905 without asking Lee’s permission. Bunnell manufactured the “Westport chairs” for the next two decades. The chairs were painted green or medium dark brown and each one bore Bunnell’s signature.

What a great idea! Snuggling with a blanket in your comfy Adirondack chair in front of a fire pit. This ingenious solution to the cold summer nights could be your next outdoor furniture project. These chairs have a very simple design which could be completed in just a day if you have complete tools and materials.
Another factor you must consider when buying heavy duty Adirondack chairs is how much weight can it actually handle. Besides the extra wide seat of the Adirondack chair, I find this factor is the most critical as a large person wanting a stable and reliable outdoors chair.
Then I switch to the Ryobi plug in jigsaw 😉 Using your jigsaw go ahead and cut the Adirondack chair pattern.
Abram would build a chair and give it away as a promotion for the show and I’d build a duplicate as a project for the Popular Woodworking readers. Perfect!

We do not build our chairs with little stick legs or narrow back boards with large gaps between them. We use thick one and a half inch thick boards for the front and back legs which provides more surface area to screw and glue down the seat and arm boards. This makes our chairs tough and sturdy and less likely to split out over time. Now what about the all important Adirondack chair arms? All our original designs feature traditional wide one inch thick arms because simply put they make the classic American iconic chair what it is; without them you would not have that perfect spot to place your drink, plate of food, book or anything else. It is our goal to make our chairs well balanced, eye catching as well as strong and long lasting. No two pieces of wood are exactly the same. This is why it is best for us to assemble our chairs one at a time. Using this type of detailed craftsmanship allows us to make sure that each and every Clarks Original that leaves our shop goes together correctly and is our best. We are very confident that when you get ready to assemble your chair it will go together the way it is suppose too.
