FAQs About Assembling Bar Stools
If you have a bar, then it goes without saying that a bar stool is necessary in order to maximize the enjoyment you receive from your bar. Assembling bar stools may seem daunting at first, but it is a relatively simple task that does not require extensive building knowledge. Keep reading for the answers to these FAQs about assembling bar stools to make the process easier.
- Q: Where can you find a ready-made bar stool?
- A: Ready-made bar stools are available at most of the same hardware stores where bars are available. You can also find them at most discount stores or online. Some models are ready-made, but many others require assembly. When ordered online, shipping charges are often higher for ready-made models than do-it-yourself assembly ones.
- Q: What materials do you need to put one together?
- A: To assemble a bar stool, you need wood glue and paper towels to absorb the glue and protect the floor and the stool. If the stool has screws, you need a screwdriver and a small plastic bag to hold the screws and any other small parts. The bar stool kit already comes with the other materials that make up the bar stool.
- Q: How do you actually assemble the stools?
- A: The first thing to do is squirt glue into the joints of the legs. Then insert the leg braces into the joints. The joints are the pre-drilled holes that hold each individual part in place. After wiping away excess glue, attach the backrest to the seat if it has one; most bar stools are backless. After that, or if there is no backrest, attach the seat to the legs or the leg frame. Then, if the bar has leg frames, place the bottom one under the top one.
- Q: How long does this process take?
- A: It usually only takes 10 to 15 minutes to assemble a bar stool. The more parts there are, the longer it takes. Reading instructions thoroughly ensures the time spent assembling stools is reduced as well.
