    Kiddie Adirondacks

    Taking a lot of liberties with Allen's recent plans/drawings of his kid-sized Adirondack chairs, I made these two - one rocker, and one plain.

    I used 5/4 decking boards (left over from the full sized chairs I made earlier this year). Full thickness for the legs and arms, and resawn to half inch thickness for the seat and back slats.

    I delivered them to my Grand-niece & nephew (ages 1˝ and 3) earlier this evening. Now, let's see if they can tear them up!

    Hey Jim those look great - what a neat gift!

    BTW, did you get Allen's OK to build those? I think he has a patent or something.

    IM a huge fan of the chunky monkey look. Those are fantastic.
    Ive used 5/4 decking on several adult chairs. (IM just too cheap to give out 5/4 decking because it adds on 15 bucks to a pair of chairs for me)
