This is a $5 (USD) downloadable PDF file. My chair design is bigger than most similar designs – more substantial and a bit more laid-back (by that I mean the angle of the back recline). Furniture these days tends to be a bit more flimsy than that of yesteryear. This chair leans more towards the ‘old’ rather than the ‘new’.

There are 18 pages in the downloadable PDF file.
This detailed plan-set with step-by-step instructions is in both metric (mm) and imperial (inch) dimensions.

Included are three options given on how to shape the individual pieces, and one of the options was contributed by a user.

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.

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

Any help is in the form of user-input and the URL for the user/comments page is given in the documentation in the downloadable file.

    G’Day from Down Under and a big thanks to you guys at Buildeazy for the Adirondack Chair plans.
    We’ve just completed the first of the two chairs to go by our pool and are really pleased with the outcome. We made some minor mods, but mostly followed your guidelines. Once we’ve finished the chairs, we’re going to make a small table with the top designed to match the seat backs.
    All the best from,

    Hi From Australia. I have just completed a half size Adirondack chair for my three year old granddaughter.
    Note the hand painted fairy on the back slat. I used recycled hard wood from an old BBQ trolley.
    Thank you for a great plan.
