I've really kept my tongue to this point, but why is that you are the higher
authority that determines who can ask for what and only when they have done
what you perceive they should? I agree that most people could easily find
what they need in doing a search but if you don't like the fact that some
don't, don't respond or better yet, don't read posts where it's obvious as
to what the poster wants. I've been watching you sarcasticly chew people
for for at leat two years - how about a civil response leading them to a FAQ
site or offering clear directions without a tone?
I think the problem often is that a google search results in over *20,900 *
hits! (http://tinyurl.com/3dy4j )
The prospect of wading through so many links, many of them false leads
generated by software designed to bring in traffic, is more than a little
daunting. Not everyone has the time or inclination to do the kind of web
browsing that you seem to do, as evident by the profusion of links you post.
It's not like they were asking for the URL of dewalt....
The chair Norm built on an early New Yankee Workshop episode is
probably the most comfortable one out there. Don't buy the plans from
NYW. Buy the book that includes plans for the chair. It is a lot
One thing to keep in mind if you do build that chair: use screws where
Norm tells you to use finish nails. Countersink and plug all the
screw holes. It makes for a much more attractive chair.
By the way, don't worry about JOAT griping because you asked a
question. It's not just you; he treats everyone that way.
Adjustable? Don't belive I've seen one of those, but have built three
different kinds. The most comfortable of the bunch is Norm's. It has a
curved back, curved seat, easy to get out of, allot of room in the arms
(which are level and good for drink sitting) and the best thing is that it's
really easy to make. If you don't find the one you want, try it out, I
think you'll be happy.
I thought that what made an Adirondak chair what it was, was the flat
angled back and seat? Curved huh, interesting. Sure hope they are more
comfortable than the regular chairs. I sat on one once and it was the
most uncomfortable chair I'd ever been in.

I made a Black and Decker Chair that is what you described and is about as
comfortable. I also built one of the Veritas chairs from Lee Valley that
folds up. It was more comfortable, but for me, Norms was the best. When I
changed jobs, I needed to stay at the new location for five weeks before the
family sold the house and moved - I only had two "Norm" chairs in my living
room until the furniture arrived and I didn't feel I had lost out at all.
Of course with a wood seat on any chair, your butt will get a little numb
after a movie or two.

I just finished building two adirondack chairs and two benches. I
ordered the plans off of a webpage that escapes me right now but I'll
take a look and see if I can find it for you. The chairs I made sound
alot like what Don describes in Norm's chairs. Mine had a curved back,
level arms (for drinks) and easy to get out of. Unfortunately they
weren't adjustable. I've never run across adjustable chairs in
Adirondak designs but keep looking and I'll keep looking. I'm sure you
can find them.

I built the Lee Valley plan which has a curved back and is very
comfortable. Pictures at:
BTW, I used white oak & paduak & finished it with garden furniture
oil. Lee Valley also sell the stainless steel fixings for the folding
