Well done, I've got some plans in my to do pile for something similar.

Are the pieces jointed or screwed? I'd too would prefer the natural colour of the wood rather than paint - or is it wood stain?

Hi
This was a trial to see how they were constructed, they were glued (with Extramite) and screwed then painted.
I also made patterns of all the components for future use, but I will make
them in either, Iroko, Teak, or Oak, I was also toying with the idea of
making them with my favourite material MDF :shock:

These were made with pine boards finished at 5 3/4"x 3/4"

Keep toying ;) ! I can't imagine MDF withstanding the rigours of the Scottish weather for very long.

Those chairs look good insofar as I can tell. I agree with the others that a natural finish (I like your suggestion of oak) would be much more appealing. It would also demonstrate your woodworking skills to a far greater effect.

if anyone needs to borrow a set of templates for a single Adirondack chair I have a set and could send them, (should not be too expensive), as long as they are returned.
