Author Notes: 

Will you come build a project with me?

This month, I'm hosting the Home Depot Do-It-Herself Workshop, showing you how to build this Adirondack Chair!

Yes, this very chair! You know, the one in the Home Depot TV commercials? Yes, that chair!

I really worked hard to design an extra sturdy Adirondack Chair that is both easy and inexpensive to build for the DIH Workshop.  I know with Father's Day right around the corner, Dad may appreciate a handmade chair that will hold him AND all the kiddos (or grandkiddos)!

I love this chair so much because the frame part is made of 2x4s for extra strength.  But the seat and back is 1x4s because they are prettier and lighter and can be easier to work with.  The end result is a sturdy chair that is comfortable but easy to build. 

And so inexpensive!  Check this shopping list out:

3 – 2×4 @ 8 feet long

1 – 2×2 @ 6 feet long

4 – 1×4 @ 8 feet long

2 1/2”, 2” and 1 1/4” wood screws

And check out how easy it is to build this Adirondack Chair - 

I am so excited about this Adirondack Chair that I will be showing up at a Home Depot (maybe yours???) to host the workshop in person!

Will it be YOUR Home Depot???

I hope you can make the DIH Workshop on June 20, 2013, from 6:30-8:00.  It will be a great chance to meet other local building friends too! You can Register right here for the workshop!

And you can find the complete plans here to build this chair!

Can't wait to build with you at the June Home Depot DIH Workshop!

PS - Got more plans coming in this collection!

Preparation Instructions: 
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

Love the chairs...definitely want to make a few of these to have around the fire pit this summer...and congrats on your exciting news!! So happy for you.

I was wondering if that was your design when I saw the DIH workshop on the calendar at my HD! I can't wait to build a couple of these... the weather has been beautiful so this workshop is coming at the perfect time!

These are super! I'm definitely going to have to put these on the to-do list.

Any chance of adding a loveseat version to this collection?

What is the big difference between this chair and the one in your book. I was all set to build six of the one you have in your book and then I saw your instagram post. Is it just stronger because of the 2x4's?
