An Adirondack loveseat has that classic, laid-back design of an Adirondack chair, but is wide enough to accommodate two people. Some loveseats have a single extended backrest while others may have two distinct backrests joined together. For even more comfort, select a rocking loveseat or a glider. Before buying or downloading your woodworking plans, its worth it to spend some time deciding what type of loveseat you want.
Pick a Spot
Its also a good idea to think about where youll put your finished loveseat so that you select the right plan. If you intend to put it on a hard surface such as a porch, deck or patio, a standard loveseat, glider or rocker will work fine. However, if your loveseat will be on a soft or uneven surface, such as a lawn or gravel surface, a rocker or glider may not be a good choice, as they work best on a level surface.
