This is an update to my first review. I've now built 6 chairs, each one successively better than the one before. The instructor on the DVD tends to eyeball a lot of things. I don't. For example, mounting the arms to the tops of the legs requires the inside edge to be in vertical alignment with the inside edge of the long legs, therefore I clamp two pieces of wood to act at guides for the arm placements. Keeping things square and plumb is the key. Gorilla Glue is recommended by the instructor and it has proven to work extremely well. Four of the chairs have been outside in the weather for over a year now and they are still as sturdy as the day they we built. Pre-drilling holes is a must, too. Overall, I have really gotten my money's worth from this purchase.Submitted by John T, from Missouri City, TEXAS on 4/25/2011The templates are terrific, but the written instructions are somewhat incomplete. The DVD clears up a lot of questions by showing you the steps that are not well explained in the written procedure. The DVD is homemade and the audio has an annoying background 60 Hz buzzing, but otherwise is adequate for the package. All in all, it's still a very good value and I anticipate making several chairs for our own use as well as gifts.

Would absolutely recommend this to anyone. Easy to follow directions and it goes togeather very well. DVD helps with assembly as written directions are very lacking. I made two chairs over 2 afternoons. Fun and easy project.

The patterns were a welcome sight. However, there was one piece of the cardboard pattern left out for the adult chair. All in all it's great.

I purchased this product to make 6 Adirondak chairs for my daughter. I arrived quicker than I expected. The plans, DVD, and templates were all much better than I expected. Very easy to follow. I would recommend this product to anyone seriously interested in building these chairs. I was very satisfied.
