Wood Seat Comparison: Solid vs. Plywood

Many restaurant furniture vendors offer "wood seats" as an option on their chairs, but you may be in for an unpleasant surprise when you actually receive the product. Unfortunately, many restaurant furniture distributors advertise wood seats, but actually provide a cheap plywood seat that doesn't stand the test of time in a busy commercial environment.
  • Solid wood seats are characterized by the real beauty of the wood with the grain; plywood seats will have a flat, grainless look.
  • Solid wood seats are much thicker than plywood.
  • Solid wood seats do not have the tendency to crack over time like plywood seats. They are much more likely to last you for years, no matter how busy your restaurant.
When you see "wood seats" advertised, you must always ask the question, "Is this a solid wood seat or a plywood seat." A plywood seat made of thin layers of wood is not nearly as durable as a solid wood seat, comprised entirely of solid wood.
