Solid wood barstools are built by some of the best Amish woodworkers in the USA. Each solid wood barstool is build from oak hardwoods with mortise and tenon joints and extra chair corner bracing. The Amish also build most of the 24" tall barstools from solid cherry wood. A standard coundertop measures 36" from the floor and a bartop height measures 42" tall.
Amish barstools are built to standard industry standards to meet these needs. The solid wood barstool seat is 24" from the floor. This gives the oak barstools with a wood or leather seat the 12" of knee space needed to work at the countertop height. When building a solid cherry barstool the Amish builders use all American grown lumber that is harvested in the Midwest by Amish Sawmills. In order to get the best cherry and quartersawn lumber the Amish woodworkers must have access directly to the best old growth hardwood trees around. By harvesting and drying their own lumber the Amish woodworkers can control the lumber supply. Most of your cabinet shops today simply can't buy enough lumber to control the flow and they get "second choice" lumber that the Amish Woodworkers reject.
When choosing an arts and crafts solid wood barstool you will notice the exposed mortise and tenon joints. Most of the mission style amish dining barstools have this feature of blind tenons. A blind tennon on a solid barstool is added on both sides of the main board and is not a "through" tenon. A blind tenon will not add any extra strength to an arts and crafts solid wood barstool.
