    Adirondack chairs for sale: As part of a final project, the intermediate woods class is building VERY sturdily built Adirondack chairs. Capable of holding 3 football players, they are made from a combination of Juniper and Cedar, both of which weather nicely in the elements. There are some “natural features” such as live edge, bark and knots but these will not in any way compromise the structural integrity of the chair. Selling price is $95.00. The floor model will be on display in front of the woodshop door facing west on Taggart Street. Want one? Email woods instructor Mr. Silvernail at dsilvernail@pps.net
