This garden bench came exactly as described. Every piece fit together perfectly with pre-drilled holes aligning just right. I'm a 65 year old gal and I assembled it by myself in about 30 minutes. There were a total of 5 bench pieces, 6 long screws, 6 shorter screws and 6 wood pegs. Most screws are tightened with an allen wrench - 2 were provided I imagine just in case one broke during screw tightening.You will need a phillips screwdriver for 6 other screws. Instructions were not written but illustrated and if you just stop to study the diagrams, you'll have no trouble putting it together. It is sturdy enough for what I think will be years of use while light enough for me to move around without help. I have it on my garage roof/porch and it won't blow away! It was lightly oiled and smelled of fragrant wood while I was putting it together. I'm very pleased with the look and feel of this attractive garden bench. You won't be disappointed if you are considering purchasing it.! Now I'm looking for a cushion - but it's comfortable without one.

I've had this bench outside on my front porch for about a month now. Great quality, easy to assemble and it looks really nice, lots of compliments from the neighbors and since I live in an area where winters are balmy I will use year 'round.
quality control is terrible. we ordered 3 benches originally, 2 of the 3 came broken. they replaced the 2 broken ones and 1 of the 2 replacements were broken in the same spot . the bench itself is actually very nice. it just stinks that so many come broken

Bench arrived with no visible damage to box, but upon opening we discovered that a key wooden support piece was in splinters. Internal packaging was lousy. Bench slats seemed flimsy, lower quality than we had expected. So we opted for a refund rather than a replacement. Overstock customer service was excellent.
I really like this bench. The color is as shown on the site, the length is great for 2-3 people, it feels sturdy. The wood screws were not good quality and one of them broke, so we used our own. My husband also felt the need to add a few more screws to secure the seat to the rest of the bench. I am happy with it

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. This feels sturdy and of good quality except for the wood screws that were sent. We had issues with them breaking off. My husband said they were just cheap screws and replaced them with his own nice wood screws.

Love the bench and it looks great in the yard; however, parts of the bench were unfinished and there were several nicks and gouges in the wood. Also, there were places for screws with no holes drilled.

Decent bench, but the big selling point was that it was advertised as assembled. It is not. Had hoped for a solid bench, but its just another assemble-at-home furniture piece.

We've had this bench on our covered porch for more than a year. It's holding up well and looks good, nice rich color. It's not heavy-duty, but still does the job and is easy to move because it's so lightweight. I'm not sure how it would hold up in hard weather, but overall, still happy with purchase for the price.
This bench, with the addition of a few pots made my front porch the highlight of the entire neighborhood! It's comfortable with or without a cushion and the color is bright and sunny enough for spring/summer and will bring a smile in the winter months!
The bench came in the mail very quickly. My husband was able to put it together in less than 30 minutes. It's very sturdy and also attractive, we just had a cookout and our friends loved it. They also agreed that for the price it was a great buy!
I love my Nobi five foot bench. It came securely boxed within a box and was easy to put together. It looks just like I imagined it would and is in the perfect spot in my yard. It adds additional seating for when I need it but even better -- it provides a park like setting and is comfortable to sit on. No cushion required! I was thinking that I might add some of those weather-resistant pillows as accent pieces. But even if I don't, the bench still looks great! I debated between this bench and a three piece bistro set. I'm glad I chose the bench instead. It's not the 'same old, same old' boring yard furniture. It adds a classy touch.
I love this bench. It is sturdy and well priced. It took me 15 minutes to put together and I am not a handy man. Only 10 screws and it was set up. I put 2 coats of clear varnish on it and it looks specular. I loved it so much I purchased a second bench a week later. I have seen benches for twice that I paid in my local area stores and the quality of the benches in those stores are 1/2 as good as mine
I can't believe how easy this was to assemble. It came with a total of 10 screws! I put this 5 ft long bench together by myself in maybe 15 minutes. The end result is fantastic. It's sturdy and has a beautiful finish. Well worth the price.
