Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel) screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.

Some modern style saddle counter stools have their seat shaped in a downward curve resembling the curvature of the saddle. Despite the rectangular shape of the "floor plan" of the seat you will be able to sit on the chair looking forward as if riding and straddling the chair with your legs or you will be able to sit sideways with your legs together and your behind safely seated in the curve of the saddle seat.
