    • Perfect storage bench for indoor and out

      I absolutely love the wood, size and style of the bench. The biggest problem, which has been mentioned in several reviews, but I hoped I'd be lucky, is the hardware and hinges. I had to drill holes to fit some of the back hinges and it wasn't easy. I got it together fine to use, but this is not something people should have to deal with. Aside from that, it's just beautiful.

    • A pain to assemble.

      This was quite difficult to assemble. We had to drill new holes in the deck lid in order to get one of the hinges to fit after encountering multiple attempts to get the darn thing to close. We also had to drill new holes for hinge to be installed. The box looks great but the aggravation necessitated by the poor in attention to construction of the box was not fun.

    • Constant Maintenance

      Halfway decent product. If you have extended rain storms like us here in South Florida avoid this product. It shows water damage and warps very quickly. This happened to mine after 6 months. It also molds/mildews very quickly if not kept cleaned

    • Very nice looking storage box!

      As I will mention on my review of the rest of this line (I purchased 4 of the tables, 6 of the lounge chairs and a storage box). Because the description said the tables and chairs folded for easy storage, I assumed they would arrive pre-assembled except for the storage box; but everything had to be assembled and we had to hire someone to come over and put it all together for us or we would have been working on it for a week or more!! The storage box is very attractive but much smaller than I had anticipated so it won't hold many of the pool items I had hoped it would.

    • Solid Trunk, Nice Color

      We bought this trunk as storage for our son's outdoor toys in our backyard patio. The best things about this trunk is the richness of the color and the solid feel. It's a heavy trunk, but still easy enough to move around on the ground if needed. Storage depth is 13", which is a little bit smaller than I expected but still decent--great for storing balls, water toys, cushions, shoes, etc. It took about 30 minutes for me to put together, and like other customers have said, the screw holes on the back of the trunk (for the hinge) don't match up perfectly with the lid hinges, so I had to re-drill some of them. Not a big problem if you have a drill, but some would not be happy about this. There was a slight crush/dent on the back panel (not a major deal if it backs up against something). One of the hinges also got stuck against the side of the trunk, so I had to bend the hinge slightly towards the center so that it wouldn't get caught against the edge. Families with little kids might want to consider carefully since the lid is heavy. Overall, even with the minor construction flaws, I'm quite pleased with the trunk which also makes for a nice bench or even a drink cooler (if you have a separate tub to put inside for the drinks. I plan on getting a second one.

    • good if you are handy...

      nice looking trunk; not big enough for cushions but we got it to stow snorkling gear for guests and it is roomy enough....solid, nice weight, dry but ventilated well. priced way better than teak and should be very durable and weather-proof (with a good coat of penafin oil). on the down side---some wood slats were cracked and the holes were not alligned properly for assembly. the hardware is worthless from the screws to the hinges.....but with a good drill, wood glue, clamps, brass hardware, and a good sense of assembly you will have a decent trunk for the deck, just be prepared to do some work to make it work!

    • Nice Chest

      We ordered this piece to store patio cushions when not in use. It is perfect. We protected with some varnish so it will remain pretty and not fade in the weather. We had one minor problem, and that was with the small screws for the hinges. An electric driver will snap them off easily, so be careful. Otherwise very happy. Customer service was outstanding.

    • Outdoor Balau Wood Storage Trunk

      The chest is very nice and a good size for chair cushions and for a lounge pillow. However, as a deck box for storage I had expected it to be water/weatherproof. Unfortunately, it is not. After our first rain, we had water inside and it took awhile to dry the interior of the chest and the cushions. We now have to remember to cover it with a tarp each evening, which isn't what I had desired. Outside furniture should be weatherproof unless otherwise clearly stated. So, I am disappointed. But, it looks great for a covered area.

    • the screws are still too weak

      The box was fairly easy to put together and looks very classy. We encountered the same problems as most previous customers, in the sense of the screws fell apart while trying to screw them in.
