THIS IS AN X- LARGE Adirondack Chaise Lounge



enclose is the cut sheet for all you material cuts

I used pressure treated 1"T x6" W x 6 ' L Material so it can last longer and later it was varnish 2++ coats their after + A THICKER 2"x4" plank for the backrest bottom cross brace

you will need a hole setter -(pre-drill)COUNTER SINK and ss screws 1 ¼" long is good

were the front legs get attached to the back legs I used threaded screws and nuts with washer and eye lets rings for the screws heads - so everything is smooth

cut all material for
the radius used 3" is good for everything you can go to 4 " if you wish

on the armrest fronts

when done with cutting everything -sand and smooth all surfaces

get you router ready and router - use a 1/4" rounding router bit

( don't use a roman ogee that leaves a sharp edge )

mark all outside items facing outwards and up with colored tape - and make sure you

mirrored the arms rest - the back legs - the backrest slats - because there is left and right

for the stiffeners, you can do both sides

Step 2: Step # 2 Cut the Arm Rest

sand and router edges

Step 3: Step#3 If You Are Doign More Than One Chair

cut 2 sets sand and router edges

Step 4: Step#4 Front Legs and Brakets

front legs and brackets sand and router all edges

except for the bracket keep inside long edge unrouted - it will be secured there and glued

Step 5: Step#5 Assemble the Front Legs and Brackets

assemble the front legs and brackets as shown in the picture

do that too to the second set you are doing

Step 6: Step # 6 Bridge Cross Suport

cut and sand router only the curved area -

don't router the straight area

Step 7:

assemble the back legs and the seat slats

use a loose peg piece of material 1/4 for spacer between the slats

pre-drill and its best to make a template so everything looks perfect

I have at least 3 drills ready with bits and driver heads so I am not wasting time

changing over between them -- as shown a divider is also hand so you holes all look the same at the same spacing but nothing beats a template -made out of metal or scrap wood

number 1 back brace

number 2 the legs

number 3 the slats

Step 8: Setup # 8 Back Fan

sand and router the fans as to the size and shape provided

this will be number 8 and number 9

the full fan is shown before cutting it to desired shape

Step 9: Step # 9 Frontlegs Assembley

assemble the front legs to the back legs - with screws and nuts use washers on the inside

Step 10: Step # 10 Samble the Back Brace and the Slats

assemble the arms - then the back brace you may need to start using clamps as extra hands at this stage

make sure you pre-drill - so no splitting or cracks will start damaging your work

then start adding the back support slats that you have cut

Step 11:

number one chair assembled

then followed by the second one

if the wood is nice and dry than light sanding if not let it fully dry out

Step 12: Step # 12 Adding Decortive Accents and Accessories

Accessories and accents

I had the idea to embed shells and metal sea object - but I settled for

Brass patina rich shells for one chair and the starfish for the other

you can do nice colored sea images on the back too like a lighthouse - fish - sail boats the sky is the limit or just leave it alone

then after 2 weeks it was varnished clear ----as the wood will age to a honey color on its own

you can also tint it with colors your choice your chair ---- as shown above

Step 13: Step 13 Foot Rest Was Added for Extra Comfort

I will post the cutout list for that later
