Though it is smaller than I thought (my bad, should have read the description better), this is a heavy piece that will not blow over outdoors. I am using it for growing herbs in pots where the critters can't eat them. When I entertain, I will remove the pots of herbs and use it for serving food/drink. Two of the bolts/nuts were not attached when I unpackaged it, which was a hassle since one of them fell between the boards of the deck. And, after a month I am seeing a tiny bit of rust on the nuts/blots, so I suspect I may have to spray pain them over time. All in all, this is a nice addition to the deck and I am happy with it.
