Rockler introduces folding Adirondack chair plan and templates

Kit includes step-by-step instructions and full-size cardboard templates.

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware is expanding its family of Adirondack furniture plans with a new plan and template set for an Adirondack chair that folds up for compact storage.

The Folding Adirondack Chair Templates with Plan include illustrated step-by-step instructions explaining the building process, as well as full-size cardboard templates for parts with more complicated shapes.

Users provide the exterior-grade lumber of their choice – the plan calls for 3/4" and 1-1/2" thick stock, dimensions commonly available at home-improvement stores. Rockler also is offering a hardware pack that contains the knobs and stainless steel fasteners required for one chair.

“April is National Woodworking Month, and the arrival of spring means the focus for many people will shift outdoors,” said Scott Ekman, Rockler’s vice president of marketing. “The folding Adirondack chair is an ideal project. It gives people an opportunity to hone their DIY and woodworking skills while creating a great-looking piece of furniture they can enjoy on their deck or in their yard.”

The folding Adirondack chair is designed especially for those who have limited space. When open, the chair is 33" wide x 41-3/4" tall x 35" deep (from the front of the arms to the rear ends of the back legs).

Folded for upright storage against a wall, it measures33" wide x 50-1/2" tall x 10-1/4" deep. Easy-to-grip knobs secure the chair in either position.

The folding chair is the latest addition to Rockler’s line of outdoor Adirondack furniture plans, which also includes plans for a classic Adirondack chair, a matching foot stool and end table, a bar-height chair and an Adirondack bench. Hardware packs also are available for those projects.

The Folding Adirondack Chair Templates with Plan (63334) is priced at $24.99, and the Hardware Pack (68447) is priced at $29.99. Both can be purchased exclusively at or at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, as well as through the Rockler catalog.
