The design of this lawn chair is different from the typical "Adirondack chair". Adirondack chairs are great for reclining on the deck and looking out at the lake, but their steep recline makes them awkward for most other activities. Lawn chairs based on this plan have less of a recline to them, which makes them more suitable for eating or socializing while sitting in the chairs.

Before nailing on the back for the first chair you build, it's a good idea to just secure it with some clamps and sit in the chair. This will give you the opportunity to adjust the final seat back position before you nail it all together.
These chairs have a few more parts to them than an Adirondack chair does. Geometrically, however they are a bit easier, because they lack the many compound angles that Adirondack chairs have.
You can also download a SketchUp model of this lawn chair. You will need the free Google SketchUp to open the SketchUp model.
