It’s no mystery that this distinctive furniture style has become so popular. Attractive but rugged design and unmatched stability are just two of the reasons for its timeless appeal, and our Adirondack chair offers these benefits and more. Unlike most of the Adirondack chair designs you’re likely to run across, this one is very easy to build. There are no complex compound angles to cut, no intricate details in the back and seat slats, and no complicated joints. It can be built with basic tools and simple techniques.

Slip 3/4"-thick spacers under the high brace so the tops of the braces are level. Then, arrange the back slats on top of the braces with 5/8" spacing between slats. The untrimmed ends of the slats should be flush with the bottom edge of the low back brace. The bottom of the high back brace should be 26" above the top of the low brace. The braces must be perpendicular to the slats. Drill pilot holes in the low brace and counterbore the holes. Then, attach the slats to the low brace by driving 2" deck screws through the holes.

It is ideal for extra cookout party seating, as an outdoor plant stand, or even a garden bench along a pathway. The construction could not be simpler, which makes this the perfect project for someone looking to build their woodworking skills and cut their teeth on a surefire success. Expect to spend no more than an afternoon putting this project together—even counting the time you’ll spend in the lumber aisle of your local home center. While you’re there, you’ll be spending very little money because the easy construction translates to minimal materials.
