Bar Stools. Sunday , January 21st , 2018 - 15:08:08 PM
What all these stools have in common is that they are made of wood. 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. Another thing these western saddle bar or counter stools have in common is that, just like the horse saddles, they never feature a back rest, or the arm rests. Lets look at these three styles of saddle bar/counter stools.
Knowing what height, what fabric, finish, material and how many bar stools can fit your particular installation before hitting the stores can greatly enhance your bar stool shopping experience. Many people expect to find just a few styles of bar stools and are overwhelmed at the thousands of options available. This article should help you in selecting the perfect stool for your home or business. 1. Height. Know What Height You Need. Most people require either a 26 or a 30 bar stool. If the counter you wish to furnish is 36 high, you will need a 24 or 26 inch stool. Most standard kitchen counters are 35-37 inches high. If you have a standard slide-in cook top, standard dishwasher or other standard size appliances that are level with your counter tops, chances are you have a standard height counter top.
Others have their saddle made of straight, flat wood, which might be a type of seat you are more used to. Round saddle bar stool Some western style counter stools have a round saddle instead of rectangular. They are still termed western counter stools for their other qualities, such as wood as the material for both their legs and the seat. They will typically have four legs, and the neighboring legs will be connected with cross bars at different heights on neighboring sides, and same heights on opposite sides, for stability and sturdiness of construction. Sometimes the legs will be made of natural branches, with their natural curvatures, giving a seat a rustic, unique look. Later, with the development of wood carving machines, the legs would become straight and of the same shape, and would feature simple circular ornaments.
