Avalon Double Cross-back Bar Stools (set of-3)
 from Cambridge, MA,  Jul 17, 2012

Over all these stools look great but it was very stressful seeing how wobbly they were after putting them together. I kept thinking I am going to have to take them apart and somehow fit the pieces back into the box to return. One of the three stools we were able to assemble without the wobbling; the other two wobbled. We tried taking the wobbly stools apart and swapping out the legs. When we reassembled them with the swapped out legs they still wobbled. The stool's legs; parts A & B, and part D, a square bracket, with the swivel part welded-on, are designed to overlap and hold together with 4 screws. However as one screws-in and tightens part-D to A & B it creates an shift in A & B's alignment, creating an imbalance in the stool's legs. There needs to be better quality control on this product. Parts A, B & D should be pre-assembled prior to packaging, to be sure the parts align, then taken apart and package together or labeled 1A-1B-1D, etc. before packing for retail. Also the seat do not have pre-drilled holes, a drill is needed. We were able to remedy the problem by taking the rubber covers/caps off the extra leg-lengths, (we didn't need the extra height,) and cut the sides off, leaving the round rubber bottoms intact; we use these rubber bottoms to stuff inside the rubber caps on the stool's legs where it was uneven. By stacking the rubber bottoms inside the leg's caps we were able to get the stools to come very close to being even.
