A twist on the standard adirondack chair! This bar height adirondack chair is large, sturdy, super comfortable and looks awesome! The optional cup holder makes relaxing in the summer even better!

Cut out seat supports with Jig Saw. Mark the points, according to the plans, connect the dots and cut out the first seat support.. Then, use the first seat support to trace the second.
Attach the legs to the seat support. Tip: Use the Nailer to hold the boards together and then use your drill and wood screws to secure.
First of all I love your site and all the cool DIY plans you have. My first project is to build the workbench soi have base to work on the projects. My question is on the Adirondack chair, at what height do you place the seat supports on the legs, or did I miss it in the plans? Thanks Larry
@ fireman 1088, look at pages 6 of the plans and I think you will find your answer
We have been looking for the perfect chairs for our upper deck. Looks like we will just build them ourselves!
Approx how much does this cost to build?
I can't wait to get started on mine ;)
Thanks so much guys! The chair was about $50 in lumber!
Does anyone know how much weight this would support? Trying to find a taller chair to make for my dad.
I'm not sure exactly how much weight it will support, but our 6'6" Ryobi product manager tested it out and gave it a thumbs up!

Made this chair last week. It turned out great. I love it and so do my cats. Thank you for the pattern.
I think I'm going to enjoy this site very much thank you
I started building this chair tonight and the front leg diagram did not work out. The 5 dgree line I don't believe is right. Am I the only one that had this problem. The way I see it the line needs to be 23 3/4 from floor and 90 degrees.The leg is cut both ends on 5 degree ( so the whole leg is sitting on 5 degree angle) and if you put the 5 degree line on it the rear leg will not be level.
Thanks for sharing the plans, can't wait to get it done.
Looks like fun chair to build and good looking plans to use.
Has anyone made this using 2x4s instead of 1x2s for the legs and braces to give it more stability and strength? Cost increase is insignificant
Looks awesome, hope to make a couple of these this summer for our lake house.
I love this chair.
i used 2 x 4's for legs and braces and the chair turned out great.
To Macy44, I had the same question too about the angles and the front leg. I built like you specify without the 5 degree line on the front leg and your measurements. The chair turned out fine that way. After working with some scraps, I will be trying this again. The legs would not sit flush on the ground according to plan. I did a test cut to the bottom of the rear leg and made a 5 degree cut instead of a 0 degree cut for the foot of the rear and the scrap wood I was working with made the legs turn out flush on the ground. I plan on trying this on another chair as the chair will sit back further if the plan angles for the seat support are followed. Not sure which I will like better for comfort. I also modified and built with 2x4's. The chair turned out great!
