Beautiful bench and easy to assemble (just four screws). The wood grain is beautiful and its a really interesting piece. Only cons and they are hardly worth mentioning are that it was a little wobbly, but after placing some pads under the legs its fine. There was a crack in the wood but its just adds character. Finally the finish is a little rough but nothing that would bother you, just very natural. Overall a very cool, unique, natural piece that we love and looks amazing!!
