Good deal or disaster?


Our set of two 29” bar stools arrived this morning from

They came with hardware and assembly instructions:


Notice something missing?

No reference to glue and no glue included. Without wood glue to secure the stretchers (C), the leg pieces (B) will wobble and spread, shearing them off of the seat (A) and send the sitter crashing down onto his/her ass.

They list for $159.38 a pair, but were on sale for $50.25 a pair. They get 4½ stars from reviewers but they look to me like a lawsuit ready to happen.

I’m off to the hardware store for some Gorilla Glue, but I predict they will wobble and break within six months.
