Here are the good features of this storage bench: 1) great concept to store cues and balls out of sight all while providing extra seating 2) dark mahogany stain matched my pool table perfectly as if I bought it as a set 3) relatively easy to assemble although the instructions could have been drafted more clearly. Now for two design flaws that caused me to give this storage bench an average rating: 1) the storage bench needs to be at least 2 inches longer so that the hinges on either side of the bench do not touch the pool cues in the seat-down position (I have standard length cues) and 2) the storage area under the seat cushion should have been at least several inches deeper than it is so that racks can be stored in the same bench.
I collect designer made cue cases and while I collect them I don't use them for play. But, I need to carry my multiple cues in something. This case is PERFECT! It easily holds two Butt sections and up to four or more forearms. The quality of this case rivals many of my designer cases but is 10% of the cost. The zippers all work seamlessly and are very functional. The leather is real and has the smell of freshly tanned leather. At the same time this case is fairly light and yet a workhorse for carrying a jump cue in addition to back-up forearms with different tips for play. I highly recommend this case for its value.
