Fine Woodworking's Garden Chair Plan
by Michael Fortune




Overview -

This plan is your guide to making an ultra-comfy lawn chair. While the ever-popular Adirondack chair is comfortable enough for reading or relaxing, it can be difficult to get in and out of. Acclaimed furniture maker Michael Fortune redesigned this classic with better ergonomics, but didn't stop there. With this detailed plan you can reproduce your own version of his iconic chair, inspired by the graceful arc of daylily leaves in his own garden.

Master bent-lamination techniques. The first phase of this chair project involves creating the bent lamination to form the sweeping arms, the seat, and back slats. Expand your understanding of this process, as you learn the secrets to success that Michael has learned over 40 years. His plan guides you through all the steps for creating a sturdy, lightweight form, keeping the plies aligned, managing the clamping and gluing, forming a seamless bend, and more.

Designed by a consummate artist-craftsman. Follow this detailed plan to master a variety of steps for working with curved pieces. Finally, you'll learn how to assemble the chair, level the legs, and finish it.

Create a thing of beauty When built from weather-resistant wood, such as mahogany, white oak, hemlock or cedar, this beautiful garden chair will last for decades. It will invite you to relax in comfort and grace your lawn or garden with its lovely, organic shape.
