This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers, you’ll get 10 responses. In my opinion, wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel), screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still, there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.
You may even think of buying unfinished oak bar stools so that you can get the finishing done by yourself. You can have a light finish or a dark finish according to your wish. You can also use wood wax that can protect oak from the vagaries of weather and other elements. Wood wax can greatly improve the natural color, grain and beauty of these stools. Of all the factors you should look for, you should lay greater stress on durability. Only then, you can have these oak bar stools for a long, long time. If you opt for buying cheaper oak stools, they may snap soon and you will have to spend again to buy new stools.
