The Jackman Adirondack chairs, a Jackman signature! The best design, taking advantage of the best features with both a curved back and seat while still being efficient to build.

These are made from clear grain western red cedar, fastened together with 2″ stainless steel screws, and finish with an exterior grade urethane finish. It takes me about 5 days to build a set of 6 like this.

Step 1: Rough Sizing of Materials

I start with the rough lumber – clear grain western red cedar. I use 5/4 x 8 rough sawn lumber planed on both faces and each chair takes roughly 30′.

I pull my template out of it’s hiding spot. Each piece is made from 3/4″ plywood so I can trace it on the cedar and also use it as a routing template (more on that later).

The hardest part is the layout. Because of all of the curves of the parts, you have to keep pretty clever to minimize waste.

I start by tracing out all the pieces for the chairs and then cut them down to rough length with the jig saw.

Any of the pieces with parallel sides are traced out roughly, like the back slats and seat slats.
