While the ever-popular Adirondack chair is comfortable enough for reading or relaxing, it can be difficult to get in and out of. Acclaimed furniture maker Michael Fortune redesigned this classic with better ergonomics, but didn’t stop there. With this detailed plan you can reproduce your own version of his iconic chair, inspired by the graceful arc of daylily leaves in his own garden. The first phase of this chair project is a complete lesson in bent lamination for creating the sweeping arms, the seat, and back slats. Expand your understanding of this process, as Michael shares all the secrets to success that he’s learned over 40 years. His plan guides you through all the steps for creating a sturdy, lightweight form, keeping the plies aligned, managing the clamping and gluing, forming a seamless bend, and more.

When built from weather-resistant wood, such as mahogany, white oak, hemlock or cedar, this beautiful garden chair will last for decades.
