Adirondack Chair
Reasonable price for plans, templates and hardware. I transferred the cardboard templates to 1/8” hardboard which gave me some experience cutting the curves with the bandsaw before tackling the project. I ended up painting my chair because I live in a very mild climate and don’t have to worry much about the weather. It will be under a covered patio. Put some cushions on it and I’ll be all set. I’ll definitely make another as a project this summer.

Adirondack chair plans
The plans were great, i did make my own set out of 1/4 inch mdf for more rigidity and that was helpful. It was a great project and a good way to explore how to make these incredibly comfortable chairs.
These 20 chairs were made for an organization in Granada nicaragua, for their spacious porch.

Pretty good project. You have all you need. Mine I build with oak lumber I bought at Menards. Really beautiful but pricey. About $270. Second I am building with cedar and pine from Home Depot. Less than $100.

Woodworking Experience:
Fun, Great Project with Comfortable and Beautiful Outcome
I built two of these Adirondack chairs using the plans purchased from Rockler. I can't recommend these plans enough. With enough diligence and attention to detail, you'll be able to make some really comfortable chairs. I knew I had a winner on my hands when my family visited a week ago. People were fighting to get dibs on sitting on these chairs.

I wouldn't say this project is going to be easy for a beginner, but it can be done by a beginner.

So the tools you'll need are really simple. First you'll want to have a mitre saw, a drill and most importantly a jigsaw, and finally a router (for a nice finish). I also purchased a gallon of Exterior Satin 450 finish at Rockler with this project to give my chairs some level of protection from the outside environment. When you work really hard on chairs like this, you can't put a price on protecting and caring for them.

I'm glad I took on this project and if you want an Adirondack chair that is better than pretty much anything you can buy, this is the one. Thank you Rockler for making this plans available.

Joshua A on Jul 27, 2018
because i have four already, however i didn't take care of two of them. So i have been rebuilding two of them. Plus the person who build them never painted them properly. Except for the back slats. I made all new pieces and made adjustments as i went along. having your template and hardware will make my life easier. When making over the other two chairs. Thanks Andrew

mark d on Aug 15, 2018
I bought the set, and I saw April had a printed template for the support braces. That is not in the kit, and I was wondering if that was something that you guys have that can be downloaded?
Stormy W on Apr 18, 2018
What tools are required to make this? Would like to be sure I have everything needed before purchasing the plans. Thank you!
Chris C on Apr 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: i used my table saw, jig saw, drill and bits and sander, that said, you could do it without the table saw, manually sand it, and use a screw driver......depending on the wood you use though having pilot holes to keep the wood from splitting is a good idea
Can you supply a recommended tool list?
Charles B on Apr 5, 2018
We need a tool list before buying plans to know if we can even make it. Why is the tool list not in the description above???
Bill C on Jul 24, 2018
how many board feet is required to make these chairs?
Dalan P on Aug 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: According to the instructions the single chair requires the following:
4 - 1x2x96"
3 - 1x4x96"
2 - 2x4x96"
1 - 2x6x96"
1 - 2x8x96"

The double chair requires the following:
6 - 1x2x96"
6 - 1x4x96"
2 - 2x4x96"
2 - 2x6x96"
1 - 2x8x96"

I made them out of dimensional cedar lumber so the number of board feet wasn't a factor. I'll leave that calculation to greater math minds than mine.
The small support blocks under the arms are not included in the templates. How did you all make them? This is frustrating as a first time builder.
Raymond A on Jan 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You are correct! Tthey are not included in the templates. Drawings of brackets 7 & 8 are shown oppisite page 4. They are shown one half size. The easiest way to draw them is to purchase some one quarter inch grid paper and draw one inch squares. you can then draw the brackets by following the pattern shown. I hope this helps.
What did those who built the chair use as their wood choice?
Scot P on Apr 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used treated lumber as it will be out in weather. Treated lumber is more difficult to work with, but will hold up. Needs to be sealed, just like a deck. I burn mine, then seal.
What lumber is required for this build? Trying to figure out the total price per chair.
Dave G. on Jan 26, 2019
Can u make a andorak rocker from these plans??
Gary A on Mar 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The templates do not allow for a rocker, however I saved a rocker bottom from a disassembled rocker as a pattern and plan on building a rocker someday. The plans for the chair should work very well modified as a rocking chair with minor adjustments.
What thickness material are your plans designed to use?
Brian on May 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It’s a mix of 1” for the seat slats, back slats, and some other parts, and 2” for the legs and arms. If you don’t have a planer or a bandsaw I’ve used 1” for the arms in the past so they’re not too heavy
What are dimensions for Piece 5, seat support? I see overall length in Bill of Materials, but Don’t see angle across top or dimension of shortest side. Sorry if it is in plans, but I missed it. Otherwise, I really like the plans
Lester C on Mar 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Never mind. Figured it out - 15 degree angle
What is the seat width?
DrJTB on Aug 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Only 19". Too small for a regular adult chair. Typical chairs are around 21" - 23"
What are the measures of the package when shipped ?
Vicky on Aug 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Approx. 23"x7"
Can I build chairs and sell them ?
Ronald on Jun 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: People love them, but you better have the tools and an assembly like build to make them affordable and still make money.
Could the back be made adjustable?
