Scott Masi share his plans for an Adirondack chair that’s not only comfortable to sit in but also easy to get in and out of. This chair has a curved back and a flat seat and is built using patterns and several jigs. A detailed project plan shows the overall dimensions and parts. All of the curved pieces on this chair are traced from patterns and cut on a bandsaw. Masi routs and sands the pieces carefully. He trusts his eyes and hands during assembly, more than layout lines, and he builds the chair from the ground up. Also find tips on finishing outdoor furniture.
