  1. Nice to see you back Steve. Thank you for proving to people that I have
    character. Because I do a lot of those “character building exercises” too!
    In fact, it’s about the “exercise” I’m good at.

  2. +Steve Ramsey
    I second that!

  3. The best thing about those charecter building excercises is that sometimes
    you actually get a better creative solution from your mistakes.

  4. Not exactly a classic Adirondack, but a nice build.

  5. awesome job

  6. just did this project but for some reason the front part ended up to high
    that i had to cut the front legs about 4 inches in order to make it more
    comfortable, maybe i am just to short lol,

  7. What kind of bolt did you use to connect the legs and seat?

  8. great instructions!

    That’s what sets his videos apart from the many other builders on YouTube.
    Everyone makes mistakes no matter what they are doing, and by showing that
    even the best make the same mistakes, it helps the rest of us trying to
    achieve the same results stay calm and realize that it’s all minor!

  16. McDonald's Farmer

    It’s great because I watch your videos on YouTube, and then go to your
    website and watch the same videos…just in case I missed something! Thanks
    again for all the time and effort. The plans you write up are amazing.
