Double Adirondack Chair

This classic double settee plan features contoured seats and back splats, inviting you to settle in for a long and comfortable sit. The handy center table is perfect for a fruit bowl and drinks to help you enjoy a warm summer evening.

To build this plan, you'll have to be comfortable with laying out curves – both symmetrical and irregular – as well as getting different contours and angles to match with each other. This project just takes a little patience and careful cutting for an outdoor furniture piece with all the bragging rights.
