    Story Behind the Art:

    This product was created in Northwestern India. Once the British removed its armed forces from the region in the late 40s, a majority of the industries available for the local economy disappeared with them. People went back to the traditional crafts and furniture manufacturing that they had known for generations. Several hub cities of industry have flourished, creating numerous, sustainable, and stable jobs for the people of the surrounding villages.

    What is Worldstock?

    The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

    This item may display patches, due to the tools used in its creation. Any knotholes, cracks, natural inclusions or visible marks are results from the natural wood. This does not compromise the structural integrity of the piece, but is part of its design.

  • teak bench rocks

    I ordered two of these benches to use as cocktail tables. They are easy to assemble (all tools and hardware provided with benches) and they are very sturdy and pretty heavy. I can stand on them and they don't bend or anything like that. They are very nicely proportioned. The description indicates that a clear coat finish is applied and this concerned me, because I was hoping for a rustic, bare wood look. And that's exactly how they appear. Whatever coating might be on these is invisible. The wood surface has a uniform but rough texture, as if sandblasted almost. You will not get splinters or anything like that. The grain of the wood is highly figured and kind of dramatic. In my opinion, while these were not cheap, they look more expensive than they are. I would recommend them. I think they are more appropriate for indoor use, or in a covered outdoor area, than regular outdoor use. Very nice semi-rustic but modern look.

  • Solid Bench

    Couldn't be more pleased with this bench. Not sure of some people complaining of the unfinished nature of the bench...it is perfect. You're not going to get splinters or anything of the sort and there is a light matte finish on the wood as well. Very solid piece. I may buy another.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Perfect
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Solid and as described

  • Really nice piece of furniture

    This bench looks so cool- kind of rugged and worn in. Very sturdy (both my kids have been climbing all over it). Plus I like the idea of reclaimed wood. Highly recommend it.

  • just as described

    I was apprehensive about blemishes and having to spend c $40 to ship them back. They're just fine. Assembly is so easy, instructions aren't even needed. Tip: allign the tops before tightening the bolts. You'll have a sturdy, crafty, handsome piece. My compliments to the Indian carpenters...and in appreciation, I reccomend for prosperity: 1. color match the wood filler 2. get one of those gadgets that makes exact fit cut-outs and plugs

  • Strongly advise against

    Purchased this attractive reclaimed wood bench to play double-duty as a dining table bench and piano bench in our simply-designed home. Overstock delivered quckly. We were very happy. Construction was simple and straightforward, though the package came with less washers (and more bolts) than needed. Hardware store run fixed that. Bench built looked great. From mid-March, seemingly great. This Monday, June 1st, I sat at our dining table working. My wife sat next to me, leaning over to place her head on my shoulder. That's when we heard the crack. Before we could respond, I, 6'2" and 195 lbs and she, 5'4" and 145, found ourselves on the floor. The bolted areas were secure as ever; it was weakness in the bench, not the legs or connections. In fact, it seemed the underside support was screwed directly into a weak piece of the wood. The spit followed the line of what we thought was a "character mark." If you like to spend ****+ for a decorative bench, by all means. If you want to sit on your bench, I'd advise against this one strongly. I don't see any opportunity to be compensated for faulty product either, so please choose with care.

  • Sturdy bench, timeless design

    We purchased the matching buffet prior to this bench and were so pleased that we decided to get the bench also. The bench was a little rougher than the buffet, but still well finished with a lot of character added by the imperfections. I think that even the bolts to hold it together were reclaimed! It seems quite sturdy and the size is perfect for our purposes. Though we haven't had issues with our buffet not being finished, I applied 2 coats of teak oil to this right away as the wood does not appear to have any finish on it and for a bench that we'll use at our dining table occasionally, that'll be more important. The teak oil did darken the finish slightly.

  • Why build it when you can buy it?

    My hubby and I were planning on building some benches for a house we are in the process of building. I decided to take a look online to see if there was something similar to what we were interested in making available for purchase. Overstock.com had the bench, and at a price which made it silly for us to build. So, I purchased three of the benches. The bench is rustic, so those who are looking for perfection should not purchase this bench. For us, it was exactly what we were looking for! The bench is heavy and well built. The bench is held together by two large screws on either side of the bench (four total screws). I'm happy with the purchase! Bravo Overstock.com!

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. This bench is of good quality. The bench does have some holes with filler.
    • How accurate was the sizing? Fine.
