DIY Adirondack chair - woodworking project

Structure

All the wood used for this project is 3/4" (19mm) thick, with the exception of the arms which are 1 1/2" (45mm) thick. That is to give a bit of meat to the arms and something substantial to screw the upper back support to.

What you will need

For the seat sides, legs, back slats, upper back support, and the seat slats you will need...
38ft (11.5m) of 3/4" x 5 1/2" (140mm x 20mm) wood, allowing for a little bit of wastage.

For the front and rear spacers, lower back support, and arm braces you will need...
8ft (2.4m) of 3/4" x 3 1/2" (90mm x 20mm) wood, allowing for a little bit of wastage.

For the arms you will need...
64" (1600mm) of 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" (140mm x 45mm) wood.

Note: When cutting, cut the longer pieces first to minimize wastage.

You will also need...
- Around 90 exterior-type 1 1/2" (38mm) long screws.
- Four 3/8" x 2" (10mm x 50mm) galvanized carriage bolts and washers.
- Exterior-type glue
