9 Steps and $20 – A Child’s Adirondack Chair
This child’s Adirondack chair is a terrific project. In addition to being beautiful, this kid sized chair is inexpensive and easy to build. If you have your own Adirondack Chairs, and a 3 year old, they will wonder why they don’t have one. This is your chance to build one. In addition to building a beautiful project, this is an ideal plan to work on with your child. Obviously, a child might not be able to do too much, but trust me when I say that they will believe they built the chair after they help turn a few screws, drill a hold and paint one slat. That is part of the fun of it.
Working on a woodworking project with your kids is a great way to help them begin to understand that they can do anything they choose to. There is something about this that they will carry with them for the rest of their life.
This plan comes from Ana White. The Ana-White.com site is absolutely fantastic. In my 15+ years online, I don’t think that I have ever stumbled across the site. I am prepping to do some renovation work on a Lake Erie Cottage and located some great plans at the site. Bunk beds and simple outdoor furniture will be a must. If you are after plans with a sense of style, check out the Ana White site.
