Quite heavy (a positive) and nice wood. It has a slight wobble when you sit on it but I've not turned it over to see if I can fix this or not. Would be nice if it did not have this but I've never had an adjustable stool so I don't know if this is common or not. Haven't adjusted height since it was what I needed when I took it out of the box.. Overall, a nice weight, beautiful grain and color of the wood. Very happy with purchase.
I ordered 4 of these chairs and while the price was right and the look is exactly what I wanted, when I received them they were all damaged in one way or another. One even had a small welded foot completely broken off and missing. Because I liked the look of the chair I contacted Overstock and they sent me 4 new chairs without question. Three of the chairs, are nearly perfect, just a little unbalanced which I can fix with felt foot pads, but one of the chair backs was in two pieces. I again contacted Overstock and they sent me a chair that had a broken seat so I can use that ones back as a replacement part. I did not have to send the defective chairs back and was just told to keep them for 10 days before disposing them in case UPS wanted to inspect and pick them up. Now I LOVE these chairs. They are quite sturdy. .Similar ones can cost *** or more so it was worth the hassle but It is only because Overstock is so honorable and easy to work with that everything worked out.
