American Thomas Lee knew the importance of comfort when he designed the Adirondack chair in the early 20th century. He was looking for something that was comfortable to sit on but sturdy enough to cope with the rugged elements of the Adirondack Mountains where he lived.
The beauty of this chair is that you can make it from any kind of timber, even the humble pallet. These sources of free timber can be found everywhere – in fact they’re so ubiquitous you probably just drove past one! Otherwise, ask nicely at your local supermarket – tell them you’re an upcycler! Jacob Leaf, aka The Upcycler, shows you how to turn old pallets into a great new piece of outdoor furniture.
Cost: Approximately $40 for screws and excluding Resene products.
