It's advertised as being made of wood, but in fact it's a wood product like MDF; you can clearly see it from the way the stain is showing, it's not a wood grain but little 'hairs' of a wood product. Also, the application of the lacquer is poorly executed and is missing in some spots. It's sturdy enough but I sure didn't want such a low quality of work. It's going back! Just FYI for someone who is trying to match the size of the stand to a fish bowl being sold on this site - size 10.5" stand fits 16" bowl perfectly, no wiggle room.
This stand is to die for. I bought it to go with the classic fishbowl planter. It was too large however. Now I have ordered the 16 inch [planter hoping it will fit. I believe the small stand might have fit the 14 inch planter, but the stand is sold out now. I highly recommend this stand IF you get the proper sized planter to fit it. They even make a 20 inch planter! If the 16 inch doesn't fit I'll be ordering that, too.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? It looks black in the photo but it is actually a deep mahogany.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellant! I might buy another
- How accurate was the sizing? Too big for 12 or 14 inch fishbowl planter
Bought this fishbowl stand to hold a large bamboo tree. The manufacturer ships very quickly in a well-packed box. It's completely assembled, which is great. The only negative is that it looks black on the website. It's actually a dark cherry color. Would definitely recommend it.
