Adirondack Chair Building

Course Overview

Without question, the Adirondack chair is a timeless classic—the high back, large armrests, and contoured seat and back are unmistakable. For many, the Adirondack chair defines the ideal deck or lawn chair for a well-deserved break.  This course is the perfect opportunity for you to learn and expand basic woodworking skills with an end-goal of comfort.  You will cut, shape, sand, and assemble your own chair from rot-resistant cedar while learning to utilize various woodworking hand and power tools safely and proficiently. The dimensions of the chair will be approximately 28” wide, 38” tall and 34” deep. After returning home, you will have the knowledge and ability to build its match. So let the sawdust fly and imagine how good it will feel to relax for many years to come in a chair you built yourself.
