I had an Adirondack Chair plans for a couple of years. After doing many projects using pallet wood, I decided to utilize the pallet wood for an Adirondack style bench. It took me about 4-5 hours total, not including dis-assembly of the pallets. I disassemble quite a few pallets and store the wood for my wife's and my projects. I used deck screws and outdoor seal after I sanded it. It is very sturdy and comfortable.
