Over the years, monte has made some beautiful adirondack chairs. He based the original pattern on a chair that his dad made. The last 4 pretty much wore out. Last year he made a variation on the adirondack chair out of cedar, more like a regular chair height, but with the features of an adirondack chair. He made it to fit his height. Which meant when I sat in it my feet pretty much stuck straight out.
This week, he started on a chair made just for me 🙂 Today, I joined him in the shop to work on the back slats and seat of the chair. The picture above is a shot of the final product — cut so that my feet touch the ground when I sit on it.
I really enjoyed today – day 4 of vacation. Monte and I spent months… no, years really… together in the shop working on Porter Belle, Cupholder, and many woodshop projects in between. But, in the last few years we haven’t spent a lot of time making things together. So, it was fun to be out there again today making sawdust.
I do enjoy and admire monte’s woodworking passion and skill. And, I LOVE my new chair. Thanks, sweetie!
