The African Touch Bar Stool is a very attractive option for seating at higher counters, such as pubs, high tables, kitchen counters and the like. It is very comfortable with its curved seat and stable with the splayed legs. We offer it in either old growth hardwood (Eucalyptus saligna) or Zambezi Teak.
For more information on the design and construction of this fine chair, please see ‘Description’ below.
We have had a lot of enquiries for a simple, cost effective, comfortable Bar Stool, but one built to the high standards of construction and finishing of The African Touch. This is not our design, but it fits the bill perfectly. We have adapted the design to incorporate beautiful expanding tenon joints from the legs through the seat base. The legs are angled snd connected with rails that hold the bar chair together with perfect mortice and tenon joints while acting as footrails. The seat is first made by laminating carefully selected, flawless narrow strips of hardwood to give the seat base. By laminating the hardwood, we make the whole structure much stronger. It is then handcarved with a spokeshave to give the perfect shape for a comfortable sit.
The Material and finishes
We offer it in either old growth plantation hardwood (Eucalyptus saligna) or Zambezi Teak. The eucalyptus option gives a relatively light but still very strong bar chair. It comes standard with an oil finish, but if you prefer lacquer that can certainly be arranged

We cannot offer a warrantee on bar stools except for defects in material and workmanship that affect the integrity of the chair under normal use and weight limits. The reason for this is that chairs can be subject to huge stresses (such as when a heavy person rocks back on the back legs) that are impossible to compensate for in the construction of the chair without compromising on the design appeal.
We build with timber harvested from natural forests. The charm of this material is that no two pieces are exactly the same in colour, character or grain, and they will contain natural imperfections such as knots, stress cracks and so on that enhance their authenticity and attractiveness. As a result no 2 pieces will ever be identical and products may have natural imperfections. However, these will never be allowed to compromise the quality of construction of your piece.
The African Touch will not in any circumstances be liable for any claim which falls outside the scope of our warranty or for any consequential damages whatsoever.
