Adirondack Chair
Muskoka Chair


Adirondack chair plans, or Muskoka chair, can vary greatly to say the least, but this one is a sentimental favorite. I refurbished this last surviving chair of six, built by my Grandfather in the 1930's, at our Muskoka, Ontario cottage cottage.
The traditional curved top is shown above. The plans also include patterns for the other back designs, scalloped and picket
I can attest to it's comfort, as I sit in it every summer weekend morning, listening to the loons and sipping my coffee, just as my parents and Grandparents did before me.
The original Adirondack chairs had flat backs and seats, but eventually the rigid lines became more relaxed and comfortable. I have sat in many styles around cottage country, and still think this pattern is the most comfortable.
The tall, curved back cradles you, and the
19" (48.3cm) wide seat wide seat is contoured and curves under your knees. The low profile allows you to stretch out your legs. The 7 1/2" (19cm) wide arms of this chair, will hold a dinner plate or magazine, and comfortably rest your arms with coffee in hand.
I have extended the height of the original back, so that taller people can rest their head. I have also lowered, and added a
curved back seat slat , to match the curve of the back slats. This eliminates the "butt-bite", of the original design, caused by the space left between the back slats and the last seat slat.Plans also include pictures and dimensions of the taper sled I use on my table saw, to cut the back slats and back support pieces.
The chair is totally constructed of 3/4" (1.9cm) pine, but can be made with cedar fence boards. Some plans use 1" (2.54cm) to 1 1/2" (3.8cm) stock for the legs and arms, which I find too heavy looking. Take a look at one in cedar built by one of our Customers, as well as both child size chairs in teak and hickory, one made of Hockey Sticks, and others from around the world on the
Testimonials Page. There is also a folding plan available.
Childrens' and Youth sized plans are also available in full size mailed templates and downloadable format. A settee kit is also available, to join two adult chairs together. Two-way adjustable footstool plans are also available for the adult chair and settee, in full size mailed templates and downloadable format. An Adirondack table is also available.
