    Question Plans required for Adirondack Chair

    Hi everyone,
    I apologise if this post is in the wrong place but I am a newbie here.

    I am looking for help in getting full size plans for an Adirondack chair. Most that I see online are from USA and quite expensive.

    I am not good at printing PDF and enlarging to full size so I am after full size plans that I can transfer to some material before cutting out the components

    Here is a written explanation so I guess you can transfer the angles to the lengths? Adirondack Chair Plans (Step-by-Step Instructions) | Chisel & Fork

    Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.

    Purists might argue that that design is not adirondack - the rear legs are not right.

    There are also several designs in the Fine Woodworking Magazine archives - your local library probably has access.

    We bought a pair of Adironack chairs from a crowd down in Berry NSW, they are very well made and designed, with a curved back rest and the correct rear legs

    I don't have any plans, but here is a link to them and you mat be able to create your own plans from the pictures on there ..

    Oops! I think your raked back legs comply with the overall design concept. Nice aesthetics, and they look comfortable.

    How does the debate go? "...Darling, first we drink the wine, then I'll make some adirondack chairs..."

    But probably not on the same day.

    I agree that Tony did an excellent job.

    Aahem that embarrassingly is not mine.

    this is the first one I made, very nice to drink wine from.
    I go to Adelaide and buy a trailer load of barrels, bring them back with good intentions of making more chairs, but the $$ people are willing to pay for a whole barrel...
    I had 2 made up identical, was really happy with them, beautiful organic earthy smell and the red tannin colour was stunning, dipstick lady suggested I paint them white

    This is from Popular Mechanics and is advertised as free, but you would have to scale up.

    If you would still like a set of full size plans I have an unused set of the Veritas version, which includes a rocker and foot stool.

    I don't see that I am going to make this anytime soon. After searching, the above link was the cheapest I could find, but that is US$. If interested, let me know and I will PM you. (You may not yet have access rights to PM as a newcomer.) I would be looking for $19 including postage.
