The product is actually good but the problem was that the box arrived damaged. The pieces were damaged. My son and I had to glue pieces together. When we assembled it, the screw holes were not correct. We left some pieces off because we could not get them to work. Later, when we do not have winter in my town, we will drill some new holes. So the style is fine, but the product needs help in delivering to folks and the creation of the piece could be better. I decided to keep it and try and make it work out with my sons help.
out of the packaging the product was in complete shambles. broken pieces all over.I don't think it was damaged from the delivery service.. i would ask overstock to stop selling this product until you have a conversation with the vendor in repackaging this product properly.
Pleased with the teak bench. Very good quality product and comfortable to sit on.

We shopped in some very high end Patio stores while on vacation along the northern CA coast and could have paid three times what we did for our Teak Bench from Overstock. This one is perfect in every way and looks like it's built to last forever! We've finally been able to sit out front with Coffee on the weekends! *By submitting a review, each employee received a sweepstakes entry*
I received my bench with no damage. It was very nicely packaged in cardboard with reinforced edges and covered in plastic. I assembled it in about 15 minutes attaching the seat to the right arm/leg section, then the front seat brace to the right arm/leg section and then attached the left arm/leg section. It fit together perfectly and is a very sturdy bench. My 400 pound husband sat down on it and it held him without complaint. The finish is very nice too. It would be hard to be the quality of this teak bench for this price.
I read the blogs on this....(screws holes do not match) and it took my husband and I to hold, move, reset, match and eventually get the screws to match. I would not let that deter you from buying the bench. Just make sure you don't assume that the pieces will all fit together easily. It's about 49 lbs so you may need help assembling. That being said, the BACK of the bench had a 'ding' mainly because of the way it was cut from the wood. I accepted it BECAUSE it won't show but if it was in front, it would catch your clothes etc. If you see a TEAK furniture set at a garden store (costing $800-$1,000) it will not be like this. I have checked and compared prices and quality. I am retired and watch my pennies so this was a nice replacement purchase for my existing bench on my porch.
Very pleased with the product. Although the first bench was somewhat damaged when we unpacked it, the resulting service and timeliness in resolving the issue, by replacing it, was EXCELLENT and I have related the experience to many of my friends. I would not hesitate purchasing something from Overstock.com again. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because of the difficulty my husband and I had assembling it.
Very good quality bench. Assembly was very easy, we had it together in less than 10 minutes. Wood is smoothly sanded, the finish is even, and it holds two adults (total of about 350 lobs) easily. No creaking or groaning, nothing wobbles. Highly recommended.
This is a real value and high quality bench which is sold for much more in stores. It is easy to put together and comes complete with the tool required and also comes with a preservative wiping stain and heavy duty wiping rags. I would recommend this product to anyone considering an outdoor bench.
Although the first delivery brought a bench broken in shipment, the re-order proved satisfactory. The bench is pleasing to the eye, and I'm glad I went for the higher priced teak furniture. A very nice addition to my outdoor decor.
