Work Stools With BackThe other day I had a few guests from my close family over in my workshop in my home basement. Although I had it set up for quite some time, I never felt the need of making sure that people who visited me would also like to sit down and feel comfortable.

As for myself, I really never needed to sit down for a prolonged time as I am mainly working on my table saw,  a job that I can do standing up.

But, I really felt embarrassed the other day not being able to offer my visitors a chair or a stool to sit down.

So, in order to avoid putting myself in a similar embarrassing situation in the immediate future, I really needed to start looking for seatings.

But the question is, what type of seating would that be? I could really go for some nice and comfortable chairs but the thing is my workshop space is quite restricted so I should be better looking for stools rather than chairs, as they take up less space and are easier to move around. The way I see it, stools are more suitable in a workshop environment such as mine.

So, I started researching online for work stools with back. I am not sure what brand to go after, but I had a pretty good idea of the minimum requirements: They should be comfortable to sit for a prolonged time, have a robust construction that can easily withstand the harsh conditions of a workshop and on top of all I had to make sure they had a good support for the back. I know first hand about back pains and I would hate the idea of having my guests (or me) sit on a stool for a long (or even short time) without a proper support for the back!

So, to cut a long story short, I finally concluded my research and here below you can have a look at my top 5 picks! I hope you find them helpful.
