Build an Adirondack chair By Les Kenny[Table of contents are below]
Step 5. Add the bottom rail
In this context, the bottom rail is a piece shaped specifically to give the back boards their curved profile.
The bottom of the back boards are fixed to the bottom rail.
The bottom rail is fixed on top of the rear spreader.
Apply some glue and place it on top of the rear spreader, in the middle (lengthwise), with the back edge of the bottom rail flush with the back of the rear spreader.
Hold it in place with a clamp and fix it with screws.
