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!

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!

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.

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
