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.

These finishes are by far more chip and scratch resistant than "spray painted" finishes. In addition to a more durable surface a powder coated finish is much less likely to be damaged by cleaning products than a painted finish.

Back in the times of wild west, metal was not as prevalent as it is today, and the cowboys had to make do with the materials that were more readily accessible, in particular wood. So the cowboys had to master the art of woodworking to create these stools. The other materials the cowboys had available were natural leathers, either coming from caught wild animals, but more commonly from the cows that were slaughtered for their meat.

Adjustable height stool - from bar height to counter height: Typical adjustable height counter stool will readily adjust between the counter height of about 24 - 25 inches to 29 - 32 inches or so bar height. This will allow a stool like that to be used at the bar top, as well as at the counter top, which will add to its choices. While the bar stools and the counter stools are available in both metal or chrome or wood finish, an adjustable height stool is usually only available in the chrome finish or a stainless steel finish as these are the only ways the single foot of a stool can be made height adjustable. That single foot contains a pneumatic mechanism that uses compressed air to `lift the seat surface upward and uses the person`s own weight to lower the stool surface downward.

These are common enough for manufacturers to produce them, but most customers will need a bar stool in the 24" to 30" range.
Berta Russo Bar Stools, 2017-08-23 00:56:14. Bar Stools - An old tradition: Bar stools are arguably as old as bars themselves. When someone thought of putting up a relatively tall, long table that would serve as a centerpiece for a public house, it would not have taken long to think up appropriate seating. The bar is often at elbow height of a standing man of average height, for the purposes of making things easier for the bartender who serves while standing, and also to draw attention in a room. Its height meant that conventional chairs would leave patrons at chest or chin-height in relation to the bar, which is no way to enjoy some food or drink. When bar counters served as focal points for food and drink as they did in the old days, one really needed one`s hands at the right height. The obvious solution was to go to the bar counter, order food or drink, then finish it off while standing up and leave afterwards. This was fine for the utilitarian purpose of public houses, but soon people started wanting to hang out for longer. In any case, taverns and pubs profited from having customers hang around for more than just a drink or two. Bar stools were invented to provide comfort and in turn generate revenue for the owners. The height meant that the countertop was in easy reach, and the narrowness meant one could seat a large number of people at the long counter. Since then, going to the pub to meet the locals and congregating at the bar for some drinking have become traditional pastimes. It would probably be unthinkable to imagine a world without the age-old practice of chilling out with the guys or gals for a drink after work while resting one`s feet.

Later, with the development of wood carving machines, the legs would become straight and of the same shape, and would feature simple circular ornaments.
