My First "Ana White" Project - Kiddie Adirondack Chair

My husband bought me a new compound miter saw and impact driver for our 5th anniversary, so I immediately came here to pick out my first project. I decided on the Super Easy Little Adirondack chair. I bought $6 worth of rough sawn pine lumber. I dug through piles and piles to find pieces that weren't cracked or warped. Then I sanded it and oiled it with teak oil, before cutting and constructing. After it was put together, I applied two more coats of oil and then hand-rubbed it to finish. Additional pictures show it before last two coats of oil, and also a before and after of the wood prior to and after sanding and applying the preliminary oil finish. Also added a couple with a cute model in the chair... I am listing this as a one-day project because of the type of wood and finish that I chose. If you bought nicer wood, it probably wouldn't take that long!
