This product was very easy to assemble. The finish is rough at best and had seven or eight dings that we will have to touch up with a finish stick plus it will need a good coat of sealer. There does not seem to be a sealer coat on the product. The listed dimensions are misleading. The width of the bench is listed as 45 but the actual seating area is only 41. The depth is listed as 23 but the actual seat depth is only 17. The longer measurement is from the back of the bench to the front of the arms which overhang the seat by several inches. To me the important dimension of a bench is the amount of seating area. The 17 inch depth is several inches short of a comfortable seat depth for an average size person. I would not order this type product again unless I was able to verify the stated dimensions since every manufacturer will give dimensions that they feel favorable to the product.
