3) Comfort— These are not comfortable. The back of the chair digs into you. I should have gotten a curved back. To still use these chairs, I have put a pillow on them so you sit back against the pillow.

The upper rear crosspiece is attached below the chair arms. Use clamps to hold the piece in place as you position it correctly, that is, with a 201⁄2” distance between the inside edges at the backs of the arms. That might leave up to a 1⁄4” overhang of the arms at the outside edge. There should be sufficient space to secure the arms and crosspiece with two carriage bolts at each end. Use a spring clamp to hold the parts in place while drilling the 1⁄4” holes for the bolts. When done, install the four bolts.
In using wood, you are letting the furniture look as it was intended. However, there are still problems with using wood for making the Adirondack chair. For example, wood is more vulnerable to the weather than resin, meaning that you have to adopt a yearly care-taking regime. This can be hard work, and will also take up a lot of spare time.
Off to Lowes we go and return with a truck full of wood. Make sure to get treated wood for this project since your DIY Adirondack chairs will be used outdoors.

Next use a gauge block and a miter saw or table saw so you can repeat the same length cut exactly for the lower rear crosspiece, the front crosspiece and the seat slats. Use the pattern that provides the curved shape of the lower rear crosspiece. (Abram’s frugal, Yankee blood became evident when he pointed out that by using slightly wider stock than necessary for this part, the waste piece makes the perfect matched curve needed for the rear seat slat.) After band sawing, sand the edges smooth and be sure to set the waste piece aside for later use.

I love spray paint!! I do wish there were a wider range of colors. I’ve learned to do several very light coats to avoid drips.

Hi! I live in Bay Area, CA. I’m looking for a couple of these chairs and they are sold out online.
I've also gone through a lot of these.....haven't found the solution myself other than to head to Home Depot to replace. They are very comfortable and durable, but don't last forever.
