More Information on this Workshop

Imagine sitting back and relaxing on the original lounge chair, whether it be on the deck or under a shade tree or out by the lake–sit back and relax! Adirondack chairs have been around for a long time. Many variations have been made but all for one purpose, to sit outdoors and relax. Building a comfortable chair that can survive the outdoors requires good wood selection and proper joinery. Beginners, as well as seasoned woodworkers, can learn how to choose the wood for strength as well as beauty, while at the same time learning how to work with angles and slopes. Doug will show how to make and layout parts for that perfect fit. Students will learn the value of well-made jigs to increase accuracy and replication of parts. Wood always moves and even more when outdoor. The proper joinery and choice of adhesive is key to the longevity of any outdoor project. During the week students will not only make an incredibly relaxing chair, but will also make jigs and patterns to make more chairs when returning home. The only problem is filling the orders from family and friends who will want you to make that perfect chair for them. But first, relax in your own Adirondack chair!
