DIY Adirondack Chair – Bar Height

Hey guys!  We are super excited to share this fun project with you today!  Everyone loves a great outdoor chair, to lounge in, especially in the summer!  We’ve got a fun spin on an adirondack chair!Adirondack-Chair-DIYHow fun is this?!  It’s bar height, giant and super sturdy and comfy! I built it for our back patio and it was THE chair to fight over at our 4th of July BBQ (and my hubby has asked for more;) ) It also has an optional addition that you can see over at Ryobi Nation!

And, we’ve got the FREE Plans and a full tutorial, for this awesome chair, over at Ryobi Nation as well!

    Would you mind sharing the SketchUp file? Thanks in advance!!

  • Brent

    I hate to ask but is there anyway to get the plans in vector art?
    the pieces of wood that are needed in particular?

  • Robert Stutzman
  • Jeff Varady

    The pictures and drawings make it appear the chair is square. The cut list shows a 5 degree bevel on the spreaders that I assume makes the front wider the the back. Is this correct?

    When I was getting ready to complete step one on the plans, I discovered the reference line on the front supports are approx 2″ too high, anyone else concur?

    • Jerry Arnold

      I had exactly the same problem. Maybe we’re the only ones to actually make this. The diagram says to place the seat support at 25 5/8″ but it is definitely 23 5/8″

      • Jim

        Yup I had the same problem

  • Pam

    I want a bar height lounge chair for my balcony so I can lounge and look over my railing. Ever heard of that?

  • Jack Iwaszko

    Is there somewhere I can get these plans without signing up to Ryobi nation? I created an account but it won’t let me sign in! Help!

  • Ashlee Ault

  • Courtney Burge

    Could you please tell me how high the seat is on this chair? 🙂

  • Joe Cyprowski
