This is the last time Im giving away my money makers.
A buddy of mine purchased a home recently in the Lancaster area of PA, heavily populated by Amish.
I figured its time instead of the LI folk buying chairs from the Amish for their backyards and decks, how bout the LI folk display their chairs in the Amish countryside.
The best part about these two chairs, is that between these and the last set I sold, at least 20 pieces (mostly slats) were from a discarded white oak display cabinet that was tossed. I saw it at my wood guys shop the first time I was there, and he said yeah, its going out with the trash, so I took it.
There were many dados, areas routed out for hinges and locks, and whatever, but I cut around it all, some I couldnt avoid, like I show the hinge cutout on one of the back slats. But overall the wood only had a few tiny screw holes in them.
I wont finish these, just cut off the plugs, a 3 minute sand job, and he can do the rest.
I didnt even bother to use a level or spacers, just eyeballed everything, (said the blind man), used my pinky for a spacer, and assembled them.The table I usually on make if I have enough shorts planed up. I had to use some spanish cedar for the legs on the table, all I had milled at the time.
I still think they are by far one of the most comfortable adirondack chairs Ive ever sat in or had the plans too.
Gave me something to do this morning along with reglue up the one cutting board Im making. Hate those things, just too much work for one little board.
