Jacqualine Pruvost Bar Stools January 28, 2018 23:25:26
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.
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.
