Shop Class Adirondack Chair Part 4: The Seat and Finishing Touches

Today, we're adding the most important pieces: the seat and a protective finish for your Adirondack chair. The sub-frame and back are done and attached. The final stage are to create the seat and add finishing touches. Cut 15 slats out of the one piece of pine. Cut using a combination of a miter saw and a table saw for length and width. Round over the edges of each of the slats with a router, with a round-over bit. Attach the slats using wood glue and screws working your way forward. There are still a few finishing touches though. Using a wood filler, push the putty into the hole and scrape the top of it with a putty knife, making sure the holes are filled. Next sand down the whole chair before you prime and paint. First use an exterior primer using long strokes. Use an exterior paint, clear urethane or varnish to paint your chair. Once the paint is dry, attach furniture glides on the bottom of the chairs. Once you are done, you can show off your own Adirondack Chair at LowesCreativeIdeas.com/Community.
