My first project- Adirondack Chair

My Wife and I moved up from Phoenix to Lacey, Wa. We didn't realize how expensive it was to ship a bed mattress, so my handyman dad built a frame out of some 2x4s for the bed of his truck to hold the bed safely on our 1400 mile journey north. Now that we live in a much cooler climate we realized we can actually enjoy outside without cooking our skin to a crisp. My Wife asked if I could build a chair to enjoy the scenery and I eagerly said "yes, but I'll need some tools" I rushed to the hardware store and purchased my first wireless set of tools a Ryobi drill and circular saw, a square, measuring tape, and some screws. That's all I needed to complete the project. Let me know what you think I know that I have a lot of improving to do but I felt really accomplished after it was all said and done. I hope this inspires others to complete their own projects.
