Steve, is this your observation about the chair you made yourself ?* Seat being too deep, so that the front edge cuts into the back of your knee
* That front edge being too sharp - a rounded one is more comfortable.
* The seat angle being too steep.
* The back being too laid back.
* The double whammy of both the above.
* The seat being too wide.
I really like the art deco style of the the yellow one, but isn't the front edge a little harsh on the backs of the legs?DrDerrick":14z32fq3 said:Once you get the basic idea of the Adirondak, have some fun varying the design and the woods you use. Here's a couple I made a few years ago. The one on the left is made with Western Red Cedar, and has brass fitting, while the one on the right is made with Elm. It looks yellow because I used a yacht varnish on it that had a yellowing effect - big mistake!
