  • Great Trunk

    Looked for about a year for a resonably priced but sturdy and visibly attractive storage for my patio. I think I found it with this trunk. Very impressed. I put a seat pad on it and also use it for extra seating. Great purchase!

  • 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.

  • 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.
