And then the whole chair deconstructs and becomes a pile of boards. Then you cart it off to the dump or burn it in the next bonfire.

And that’s okay. Because here’s the thing about the Goldilocks Project: There’s never an end to it. Looking for “just right” becomes a calling. When the last chair goes, there’s always a new one waiting to be discovered. And that keeps me going.

    I love the article. I live away from New England now but an Adirondac chair always makes me feel at home. My first major woodworking project (I was 12, a long time ago) was making one for my Mom. She had it for years. Good memories are made in these chairs.

    I really have enjoyed reading this article and have printed it as well . My experience with the Adirondack chair began in Bar Harbor , Maine where my husband and I have been vacationing in either July or August for over ten years . We have also enjoyed ” relaxing ” in them in the White Mountains .
    Our backyard has two Adirondack chairs set under the trees and one that has never been used ; we like to have one ready for an ” Endless Summer ” .
