I was a little worries considering I read the reviews from some other teak benches. This is an extremely sturdy and heavy teak bench. I bought it for our steam shower since I needed something smaller and sturdy since my husband is 6 foot 1 and about 185 pounds. I am extremely satisfied.
Although a very nice design using beautiful solid teak wood with good structure / design & weight, this piece came in very roughly finished. Such a shame to have a potential nice product miss the mark because the overall finish was crude. Lots of rough file marks, unfinished seams & dowels protruding. Only one word sums this up - disappointed.
I was disappointed in the quality of workmanship of this product. Poorly constructed with deep scratches and glue drips at the joints. Spent an afternoon sanding and applying tung oil to make presentable. Product was actually shipped rolled up in a sheet of cardboard and wound with packing tape! Worst product I've ever received through Overstock.
