When you have wood chairs you need to be a bit more careful with them than your proper plastic or metal chairs, and wood chairs could chop pretty fast on you if you do not watch the amount of weight you are putting on them, then if you happen to be overweight, I would not recommend getting wood chairs unless you maybe put out the money & have custom wooden chairs made, however because if you have custom wooden chairs made, you could specify that you need the wood to be thick & heavy enough to hold your weight or anyone that may be sitting in them that is a bit overweight, but this is what I did because I am overweight.
I had some custom built wooden chairs from a custom made furniture outlet. It cost myself and others a lot of money, but these custom built wood chairs are really fantastic & suit my needs in every single way you can imagine, and however if you buy pre made wood chairs, you will need to be extra careful in terms of weight & other things. The pre made factory wood chairs can chop easy as they are truly fragile. I l acquired this the hard way when I bought a few factory made wood chairs. These did not last truly long because they could not withhold my weight & also it seemed that if you moved them a particular way they would get weak & start chipping. Custom made wood chairs are the only way to go!
