Even if you plan to purchase a bar stool that is pre-assembled, ask the salesperson if it is an RTA bar stool. Many retailers will pre-assemble the bar stool and sell it at a perceived ”UNBELIEVABLE PRICE”. Look for bolts holding legs and other parts together. Avoid these bar stools if they are going to be used on a continuing basis. ”Nicer” metal bar stools typically have all-welded frames. The only bolts you may see hold the seat to the swivel mechanism and there may be a few screws holding the seat pad to the metal frame. This type of construction is far more sturdy than ”RTA” stools.
You should ensure that the stools are made with a solid piece of oak wood and poplar or gum is not mixed with the wood. Sometimes, more pieces of wood are laminated together and this makes the stools more vulnerable and they will be affected by varying temperatures. This may cause warping and cracking. Especially, if the stools are kept in the kitchen, due to the heat in the kitchen surroundings, warp and distortion in shape may take place. This is because the glue used for putting the laminates together will get affected by the heat of the kitchen.
