THE GRANDPA CHAIR....HIGHER, WIDER, MORE UPRIGHT AND EASIER TO GET OUT OF

After selling my regular adult Adirondack chair plan (right image, on the right) internationally for 10 years with great success, my Customers have asked many times for a chair that is easier to get out of !

I went through a lot of wood, and made a lot of kindling for the fireplace, designing the new Grandpa Chair. It was important to keep the curved back and seat, but raise the chair yet keeping the same basic design in mind. The seat is shorter, the back is more upright, but still allows you to rest your head and have a snooze.

After testing out the first version with a group of poker buddies, it was a concensus that it needed to be wider as well, for us older pirates, with sunken chests ! Here are a couple of buddies that nicknamed it the "The Bubba Chair" . The Grandpa Chair has 21" (53.4 cm) seat slats, 2" (5.1 cm) wider than the regular chair. Grandma is 5' 2" (157.5 cm), and can touch the ground flat footed. The seat height is regular chair height of 17 1/2" (44.5 cm). I have extended the height of the original back, so that taller people can rest their head. I have also kept the 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.The arms are still 7 1/2" (19cm) wide , but shorter, and will hold a dinner plate or magazine, and comfortably rest your arms with coffee in hand. Take a look at the first Customer testimonial from France.

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 of my Customers have used 1" (2.54cm) to 1 1/2" (3.8cm) stock for the legs and arms.

Dimensions - 34 1/2"W x 36"D x 46"H (87.7cmW x 91.5cmD x 116.8cmH)
