    Tip: The story behind the art: This product was created in North Western India. Once the British removed its armed forces from the region in the late 40s, the indigenous 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 to augment the time in between harsh growing seasons.

  • Just right

    I purchased this to use as a sidechair table for a restored mission rocker. It is just right in color, finish, and scale. I couldn't be more pleased. It is very solid in construction and appears very durable. I love the character of the reclaimed wood and the squares where the legs attach to the top. It just fits with the piece. Some have questioned that it is top heavy. I understand these statements, but it is a "milking stool" and was probably meant to be straddled when used as a stool. When turned sideways to sit on there are no stability issues. (I wouldn't use it to stand on.) As a side table there are no problems and is about the same width as a magazine. Thank you overstock.

  • perfect for my space

    We needed a small bench in our master bath. it had to fit a short wall across from the shower. The size of this charming little rustic bench was perfect. it's very sturdy and provides us with a great place to put on shoes, etc. I like it because it is unique and obviously handmade...not like so many that are created by machine. I also like that it is made from reclaimed wood.

  • Sturdy Milking Bench

    The milking bench is a very versatile piece of furniture with many uses other than its name suggests. It can easily be moved around for use as a small table where needed, and it serves well for use as a bench to sit on. Although of rustic design, it is very sturdy. The square cross-section of the legs can be seen on the top of the bench, where the ends of the legs are finished flush with the top surface. This accentuates the rustic appearance. The bench is quite heavy for its small size, meaning that very dense wood has been used. It is well braced.The type of hardwood is not specified, but it looks similar to teak.The top of the table has marks that suggest that the wood was previously used. The craftmanship appears to be excellent, and the bench is attractive as a rustic piece of furniture.

    Really good craftsmanship and attractive too. Could be used as a bench or end table. The wood is very pretty.

  • Just ordered my second bench

    I bought this bench to use on my front porch, in a skinny space beside my porch swing. I realized that it is just the right size to set next to my favorite chair when I need a place to put my coffee. It is such a versatile little piece, that I am sure I will be carting it all over the house when someone needs a little place to set a drink or a magazine. Now that I'll have two, I almost wonder how long it will be that I will want a third. It's that good.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes

  • Beautiful wood

    This little bench looks great and stows under my kitchen table when not in use. It's "tippy," however, and you have to think about balance when sitting.

  • Good Construction

    The bench/ table is very nice. I didn't give it 5 stars because it wasn't as "rustic" as I had hoped it would be. Mine is a nutmeg color with no variation and does not have a reclaimed look. It is sturdy but I would not have paid as much had I seen it beforehand.

    I am using this bench as a plant stand for my orchids. But this is so versatile that I foresee using it as a bench when my plants outgrow this.

Hello krazykatladyz, unfortunately, we do not weight test our products. Thanks for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 16, 2014
 
My husband is 220 lbs and it is sturdy enough for his weight to sit. I have 2 of these and I love them. Very versatile. However, I do not recommend this to stand on. It's narrow and it could easily tip even though it would hold the weight. dllowry on Sep 22, 2014

These benches really are handmade by Indian artisans and are therefore neither factory-made nor factory-tested. They are certainly not made for any more than careful, occasional use as seating. I would further recommend never standing on these stools. overstockcustomercare1 on May 24, 2012
