instruction was very confusing since all the pieces look alike and not easily identifiable. instruction was basically in a sign-language. it took me 1 1/2 hour to assemble it using a power driver and once it was done I noticed that you could push the center shelves down about 1/4" at their centers with one finger.

Fast shipping. Easy to assemble. Very sturdy. Was exactly what I needed for garage & basement storage. So glad that Overstock had it at such a great price.

Good product at a good price. I does take two or more people to assemble and a good part of a day. I did have concerns about not having a perfectly level foundation but everything lined up just right and went together according to the instructions.

I bough this to hold towels by a pool. It is very spacious, the wood is of very good quality, and it is solid. It repels water nicely (although I have it under a covered patio) and is strong enough to be sat upon. It makes a very nice addition to the pool area, and feels "spa-like" in its simple, clean design. I am very happy with this product, and assembly was easy (15-20 minutes)

This came quickly but without instructions. After a couple of calls I was able to download & print the instructions. I'm not good at assembling, but with breaks it took me a couple of hours. The finished product is just what I wanted and just like the picture.

Great for mud room or outdoors. As mentioned in other reviews, lots of exposed screws so may not be ideal for some inside uses. Assembly was pretty straight-forward, takes a little while but not too long. Unfortunately, one of the misaligned holes caused a crack in a shelf AND they don't give ANY extra screws and one of my "g" screws didn't have the little "x" for the screwdriver to go in and I couldn't get it all the way in. Also, unlike other "assembly required" pieces I've ordered, there was NO customer service phone number so I have no idea how to get a new screw "G" and ideally a new part #6. All in all, it will contain misc. items and backpacks for my 3 children. In a few years, maybe it will serve as a gardening shelf.

Just the right size for my NYC mini-terrace. Nice materials, well designed and seems to be sturdy. Wish it were also a bench for extra seating and would be great if it were fully waterproof. But overall it meets my requirements and looks good.

Used with or without casters (an alternate non-caster bottom is also included), these units are super. I put one unit together in such a way as to make two shelves for an outbuilding that had lower-than-72-inch clearance. Both pieces are functioning flawlessly. Also I am putting together several of these units to use outside on the porch or next to outbuildings for plants. I have about 10 of them assembled in a real hodge-podge kind of way to more clearly delineate my poultry fence from my dogs! They work perfectly and eventually they will be holding water vessels as I catch water off the poultry pen. In the meantime they are saving the toes of the guineas from the mouths of dogs. So far these items have shipped with variable success as far as outside packages are concerned. Yet each of the worst boxes contained the correct merchandise. I think I have 20 of them. I am thinking of assembling three of them next to my smoker for placing food on and off the grill/smoker. This is a no-brainer. Buy them in quantity.

Pros: not too expensive, reasonably sturdy, one person can set it up with only a little mechanical ability, lots of headroom Cons: sheet metal is quite thin (though comparable with anything else out there), building instructions are sometimes annoyingly vague, some parts missing, sliding doors too short and not very durable (the sliding parts are all plastic). This was my first shed. I looked at wood, plastic and painted metal but settled on vinyl coated. More expensive than painted metal but much cheaper than plastic or wood. With metal, you don't have to worry about insect infestation or warping/sun damage (for the most part). I had a concrete slab already set up from a previous shed so preparing the base for me was easy. Everything comes packed in a 300 lbs 6' X 4' box, strapped to a pallet. It's packed pretty close to the order in which you assemble it (though there are some annoying exceptions). It took me a total of 24 hrs to put the whole thing up. They say to do steps 6 to the end all at once but you can get away with 6 - 9, 10 -14, 16 - 18 at separate times ****IF THERE'S NOT TOO MUCH WIND FORECAST****. If there's going to be anything more than a 5-6 mph wind, you'll want to do the roof (11 - 16) all at once. They say don't build at all if the wind is blowing and this is especially true if you're putting it together yourself. Even a slight breeze can really complicate putting the wall panels and roof gables on. Stuff blows over or can bend. Steps 1-5 according to the instructions, are prep work and can be done before starting to erect the building. I would add to that the portion of step 11 where you assemble the roof gables and the door assembly part of step 17. Knock all of that out before you begin to erect the shed and it will save you time. If you're doing it by yourself, you'll need a pair of vice-grips or something similar for the bolts. Sometimes you can hold the nut and tighten the bolt with two hands but a lot of the time you can't reach both. Speaking of which, when attaching the wall or roof panels, use the minimum number of screws to attach the panel to the frame (like one if you can get away with it). Then secure all of the bolts. The reason for this is that the nuts for many of the bolts are between the cross braces and the panels and are a HUGE pain to get to if the panel is securely fastened to the braces. If you have help, it's not so bad but by yourself, you'll have to resort to taping bolts through the holes and then using fingertips to try and get the nut on. They also suggest using an electric screwdriver to save time. I tried and wasn't too happy with it. Even with the clutch dialed all the way back, it regularly stripped the holes. Not only that but it had a tendency to skip out of the screw head and scratch the vinyl coating. I would recommend a decent ratcheting screwdriver. Yes, your hands and forearms get sore but it's only a few turns to seat the screws and bolts and much easier to handle. Another note, though the matching holes are reasonably forgiving, you really need to make sure the building base is square. The method they suggest of measuring the diagonals worked fine for me. If they are within a half inch you should be good to go. That being said there are still a few places where you're attaching 4 pieces together and getting all the holes to align is agony. The worst for me was the final panels of the roof. You have to attach two panels and two pieces of roof trim to the cross braces. I finally used a nail to angle through and get the holes to reasonably align. Finally, for sealing, they supply what looked to me like plain old duct tape. At least, I hope that's what it was because they didn't give me enough and I finished it with duct tape. Not too sure how well that's going to hold up, time will tell. I'm also going to seal the base to the concrete with Lexal before anchoring it. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the result. It's a good looking building and seems as sturdy as anything built out of 1/16" sheet metal can be. There's a ton of room inside (at least for me) and the extra headroom is nice too. Their quality control leaves something to be desired. I had extra braces but too few washers and acorn nuts. You can email them and they'll send replacements but I'll probably go to the hardware store instead. As for longevity, only time will tell

Overall, I really like the look of the compost bin. It goes great in my backyard. I've started composting for the past month, so I can't attest to the functionality of it, but so far so good. It lets in air nicely and the top is high enough to not let the critters in (which is unhinged, so it's basically just a cover). Assembly was pretty easy. It was actually my first item that I put together with a tool gun. You just have to make sure to read the instructions; screw in the correct posts to the right frames (if not, you'll be unscrewing it and redoing everything which I did). Overall, it took me 30 minutes to put together. The only negative was that I thought it was a little expensive for a compost bin, but you pay for the nice look of it I guess.

I am so happy with this purchace that I am almost giddy!! This will serve me well in my current apartment. I can use this for taking groceries from the car to door (one load!!) and use when doing laundry. It is incredibly sturdy. You'll see once you have recieved it why it has a 400lb rating. Cannot say enough positive about this cart. If you are contemplating this...do not hesitate... well worth the investment. I only wish the instructions were "written". The photo's are great and detailed.... I just prefer print over photo's when I am assembling things. Good job O.Co. and Honey-Can-Do!!

This compost bin is exactly the same as offered at other stores for less money, especially with free shipping. They are lightweight, easy to assemble and look great in your garden compared to the big black plastic ones. They also WORK, letting air circulate and allowing enough rain through the slots to heat the compost for a fast breakdown process.

As with other reviews this was difficult to put together, there were some pieces/screws that didn't fit per the instructions. Wish they can change instructions a bit to make it more user friendly. We had to make a couple of our own adjustments but once that was done the final product was quite nice. Must be patient when assembling.

This cart was one of the best purchases I have made all year. It is super-sturdy, easy to assemble, and even looks good. I am even hoping to need another one!

Assembly is a breeze (although it is a little tricky to get the lid on by yourself, but can be done. The box has been through (3) rain storms and kept all of the contents dry. I do worry about the bottom being slatted and allowing insects or mice to find their way in, but so far no problem. I've had this box for about (5) weeks. I am noticing a little warping of the lid, but I will keep an eye on it. I added adjustable feet to the rear to force a slight slope to the top to get the water off of the lid faster. Great product if the lid holds up to the elements. So far, so good.

This piece looked great online. But once I received it, it just look "ok". Some of the wood was splitting and a few pieces were chipped. The biggest and most annoying part was the assembly. I would say that I am pretty good with assembling furniture. But this cubby practically drove me insane! Trying to assemble IKEA furniture is a walk in the park compared to this piece. The wood pieces were not labeled at all...no letters or numbers..no NOTHING. The instructions had no writing, only pictures. So since the pieces were not labeled, it took forever just to figure out where each piece went.

This would've been an awesome purchase if it were only ~$@# instead of the $@#$ I paid. The pieces right out of the package were mostly still in good shape - there were a few spots where the paint had rubbed off, but since this is going on a porch and will have stuff on it, I don't really mind. Many other reviews mentioned that the holes don't line up at all; there were definitely a couple of holes that I had to give up on and just force my own, but 95% of the holes lined right up. There are 6 L-brackets and though there's no differentiation on the instructions but there were 4 of the same and 2 of the same; I had to look at which bracket lined up with the pre-drilled holes, but there was always one that was a better fit than the others, you just have to take the 20 seconds to do so. All in all, I'm thrilled with this purchase. It is much darker than in the picture (more of an espresso color than a bamboo color.) I assembled it by myself, using nothing more than what was included and a screwdriver, in about an hour and a half.
