Build an Adirondack chair By Les Kenny[Table of contents are below]
Shape the back
Here's where you use your imagination and put your own mark on the chair.
Draw a shape (anything you like) on top of the back boards and cut it out with a jig-saw.
Here's one idea, to give it a scalloped look.
Use a plate or other round object to mark the shape.
