2x4 Adirondack Chairs (w/2x10s)

After seeing the post for these new plans, I knew it would be only a matter of days before I was building my own set. I've always wanted to do Adirondack Chairs but disliked the dated look and all the curved cuts of the typical styles. Great job Ana on such an amazing set of chair plans. One substitution I made, as I wanted to go treated but didn't have 1x10s locally, was to use 2x10s for the back and seat boards. I also lengthened the back supports 1/2" to accommodate for the thicker boards and extended the arm rests 1 1/2" so they went past the legs a bit. With those two changes, all of my long pieces use a 33 1/4" measurements for cuts. Will be making my second set as soon as I have time. These will be about 3 1/2" wider to give a bit more room to the chair. Another awesome plan from Ana White!
