From Phil Barley, the plans Author:
There are many, many different patterns for Adirondack chairs, to say the least, but this one is a sentimental favorite. I recently refurbished this last surviving chair of six, built by my Grandfather in the 1930's, at our Muskoka, Ontario cottage.
The traditional curved top is shown on the right. The plans also include patterns for the other back designs; scalloped and picket fence.
I can attest to it's comfort as I sit in it every weekend morning, listening to the loons and sipping my coffee, just as my parents and Grandparents did before me.
The original Adirondack chairs had flat backs and seats, but eventually the rigid lines became more relaxed and comfortable. I have sat in many styles around cottage country, and still think this pattern is the most comfortable.
The tall, curved back cradles you and the 19" (48.3cm) wide seat wide seat is contoured and curves under your knees. The low profile allows you to stretch out your legs. The 7 1/2" (19cm) wide arms of this chair, will hold a dinner plate or magazine, and comfortably rest your arms with coffee in hand.
I have extended the height of the original back, so that taller people can rest their head. I have also lowered and added a curved back seat slat, to match the curve of the back slats. This eliminates the "butt-bite", of the original design caused by the space left between the back slats and the last seat slat. Plans also include pictures and dimensions of the taper sled I use on my table saw to cut the back slats and back support pieces.
The chair is totally constructed of 3/4" (1.9 cm) pine and can also be made with cedar fence boards. Some plans use 1" (2.54 cm) to 1 1/2" (3.8 cm) stock for the legs and arms though I find these too heavy-looking.
