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 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.
