Common types of wood for making twig rustic bar stools include alder and willow. Willow is inexpensive and grows quickly, and as anyone with willow trees on their property can tell you, you almost can’t get rid of it. Some call willow the American version of bamboo. Alder wood, a type of birch, has fine close grain that is easily stained and finished. Both are great for customized rustic twig bar stool design.
One advantage of using willow for twig bar stools is that it is still green when harvested, but dries after being made into furniture. For that reason, makers of willow twig bar stools pre-drill even the tiniest holes they need, so that when the furniture is assembled and dries, it won’t crack around the screws. Done properly, the furniture ends up remarkably sturdy.
Attachments to end grains of wood use 3-inch screws, which give these junctures excellent holding power. Because twig furniture involves green wood, it can be molded and twisted to some degree to regularize the shapes made from it. Diagonal braces are used on every side of a twig rustic bar stool for strength and stability.

It will last longer out of the weather, but placed outdoors, the useful life of twig rustic bar stools can be prolonged if it is treated with a mixture of boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits, and if it is brought indoors during bad weather.
