The holes were drilled on the wrong side of one of the ends so it couldn't be assembled. It's such that you can't just drill holes either - the holes would go through the piece entirely and have nothing to bolt to. We tried for 7 requests, 3 deliveries and 6 months to get pieces that actually fit. The last delivery was an entirely new bench which had the same problem too.
It looks like it would be a nice enough bench if you get one that's manufactured correctly, but we finally gave up and will buy a bench locally come springtime.
I ordered this bench based on positive reviews but was very disappointed. The first bench I received had defective pieces in the box. Overstock sent me a second bench and it was in worse shape than the first. Be forewarned that this is not the bench it appears to be in the picture. Quality control on this item is poor.
After three years outdoors in San Diego weather, the bench is all bent out of shape with the boards expanding and then bending.
An eyesore, and uncomfortable to sit on. Can only be used with cushions that hide the bending and make it more comfortable. Would not buy again.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? OK
Please tell us about the quality of the product. After three years, bench all bent out of shape
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Promoted for outdoor use, and cannot withstand the elements
Good product. I have owned it now in connecticut for 4 years. I only keep it outside during the summer months. It has shown wear. I probably wouldn't let a severely obese person sit on it these days BUT it is fine for the average person and still looks pretty nice. You can argue it would be more worth it to put the cost of this bench together with the cost of the replacement I will be needing to buy in a year or 2 towards a single nicer bench that would last decades...like a stone bench...overall I really have been happy with it.
Came undamaged and was easily put together in 25 minutes. Solid wood with a very nice stain. Only issues I had were with one of the bolts/nuts that wasn't properly threaded so it couldn't be used. I had to drill and use a wood screw to secure. And the main flat bench area was slightly bowed upwards, so when you sit there is a give and creaking sound until it rests on the supports. I suspect over time this will correct itself. Looks very nice in my peach orchard.
After reading the negative reviews my husband and I were somewhat reluctant to order this bench but in the end decided that there were more good than bad reviews and took a chance. Bench arrived and my husband quickly put it together, no parts were missing. He is very mechanical and putting things together does not baffle him but he did say that the instructions might be lacking for a novice. The only thing I noticed and quickly took care of was there were a couple of places where there was no stain. I was able to match the stain with some hobby stain and you cannot see where the correction was made. This bench sits out in front of our home under a covered porch and will not see much use it's more decorative. I will however put a coat of teak oil on this as soon as it warms up a bit and then do it annually to protect the wood from the elements. For the money this is a good bench.
This is a poorly engineered bench. It was very difficult to put together which it shouldn't have been. One I had previously, somewhat like it, took about ten minutes to put together, this one took hours and was frustrating. To have to insert a piece of hardware blindly and get it to contact the bolt was an ordeal. The wood was cracked in one place. It is finally together and is comfortable and looks nice but I suspect it will not last long.
