Nah....just an old man with A.D.D. ;D

Gotta build a couple foot rests next. My Bride is only 5' nothing. Her feet don't reach the ground :rotflol: :rotflol:

RG Beautiful job on the chairs.

It looks like you need to make some coasters so the sweat off the toddies do not stain the arms of the chairs. My problem with Adirondak chairs is I need some one around to help me out of them.

Too rough for my butt Boon. ;D

Tom, my Bride (who's 70 something) slides right out of them. The standard design has a depression in the seat. I made mine flat for just that reason.

I any event, my son and I gave them a good break in this afternoon. Toddies..........no worries. Fully functional arm rests.

I am kinda like that woman in the adv.  I have fallen and I can not get up.

I have set in a few and could hardly get out. Dang worn out construction body. Bag chairs are not good on the back of my legs. I finally found one of the old foldup style lawn chairs that had the webbing except it is cloth. The bottom cross pieces on the legs are only 2 or 3 inches off the ground so it does not sink in only that far.

There's actually a "Senior" design for an Adirondak chair. It sits more level and upright with legs to the ground rather than a side rail.

My son and I made full use of the new furniture between games pitching shoes yesterday. I picked up,another 9' umbrella on sale at Wally World and planted it between the chairs.

I have the same problem visiting people out at the lake.
Donna and I are older than all of our neighbors.
And they all have those folding bag chairs you speak of.
Comfortable, but d**n near impossible to get up out of.
Especially after a few beers and sitting in one for a couple hours around a campfire.
I almost want to just tip over sideways onto the ground and then get up from the ground.
lol

We're looking forward to many relaxing hours.

You know me.....form follows function. I have to say, they're very comfortable.

I've seen a lot of that kind of work. pretty cool repurposing of wasted materials.

I have an idea kicking around in my head for some  bird feeders. Right now, I'm hanging out in my new comfy chair having a cocktail. My Bride is at my Daughter's for a few days with my Grandson. So it's chicken on the Weber night. (She's not wild about chicken).

And...speaking of coasters.....I used to have a rosette  cutter for the drill press. Long gone now, but an idea springs to mind ;D
