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.

  • Poor quality

    When the bench arrived it was quite beautiful and for about a month I was happy with my purchase. However, six months later it is unrecognizable. The finish faded quickly and the wood started to split and splinter. I applied a heavy application of teak oil which improved the appearance but it now looks cheap. I have several pieces of teak furniture that I have had for many years. I allowed them to weather to a natural gray color and they still look and perform very well. I find it hard to believe this bench is made from teakwood. It appears to be several types of hardwoods glued together. A good teak bench will weather naturally to a gray color. This one did not. Granted this bench is on a deck out in the son so it is not protected. Other reviewers noted that they used their bench in the house or in a mudroom. I believe it would be fine for that purpose.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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
