Dimensions - 32 1/2"W x 37"D x 38"H (82.6cmW x 94cmD x 96.5cmH)

These DOWNLOADABLE Adirondack Plans include part sizes in standard and metric dimensions, assembly instructions with matching step-by-step color photos & parts pictures. Each part is lettered in order of assembly, and the legs are marked for bolt locations.

The DWG formatted file can be IMPORTED to CNC applications and converted by your CNC software. All part quantities are laid out on a 4' x 6' bed size with the grain. The side patterns and longest back slat for this chair, will fit diagonally on a 1000mm x 1000mm or 30-inch square CNC bed. You will just have to separate them from the file and angle them accordingly, corner to corner. Every CNC setup is different and you will need to verify the layout in relation to your CNC parameters and tooling for clearances.

There are many, many different patterns for Adirondack chairs, to say the least, but this one is a sentimental favorite. I 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. The plans also include patterns for the other back designs, scalloped and picket fence , as shown above.
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, since the seat is only 8" off the ground. 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" (1.9cm) pine, but can be made with cedar fence boards. Some plans use 1" (2.54cm) to 1 1/2" (3.8cm) stock for the legs and arms, which I find too heavy looking.

So comfortable! I love it! Not painted yet but I'm just too excited not to share. This was the first time I've ever tackled something this big on my CNC router (MPCNC LowRider). After converting to dxf, I nested the shapes using a free program called DeepNest and then sent the results to Fusion360 for CAM. The holes for the wood screws are not in the drawing because they would vary with wood thickness, but once you know what wood you are going to use, you can add them to the drawing and let the machine do that work too.

Drawings are incomplete had to make a lot of modifications so I could cut in my CNC

Response from Phil Barley

Sorry Paul....yes, you need to duplicate parts as they are singles in the file, but we have just added all part quantities to the file and have the Adult Chair plan done. I will email you the new file...let me know how it works. Phil
