Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Light construction - Easily breaks
Within one day of assembling my three new benches that would encircle our fire pit, my 120lb son sat down in the middle of one and the top snapped. I am attempting to repair it with wood glue, hopefully to get another few weeks of use out of it. The construction of the benches is very poor. It uses small staples to hold the top wood slats in place, and it uses the usual hex-key and philips-head screws to connect the pieces. The biggest problem is that the wood is a lightweight pine that won't hold up except in the most protected circumstances. Good price - yes - but I'm reminded again (and again)...you usually get what you pay for...and in this case, I certainly did.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DCaver Easy assembly and great for outdoor seating!
I purchased eight of these benches for an outdoor classroom at my school. My 7th and 8th grade students were able to put the benches together by themselves in groups of 3-4 in about 30 minutes, which was a huge plus! I was able to assemble a bench on my own in about 15 minutes. They are perfect for outdoor seating in any environment - home, office space, or educational setting. The darker wood blends in with nature in a very sophisticated way. The only thing I have a concern about is that the benches are fairly lightweight and I am not sure how they will hold up over the years. However, considering the price we paid and how easy they were to assemble, I wouldn't mind ordering more down the road if replacements are needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by xxxxxxxx Nice Bench
Got this bench very quickly after ordering it. It was very easy to put together, took about 15 minutes, if that. I luv this little bench! It's perfect for the kids to sit on & roast marshmallows at our firepit & It's very light-weight, so it's easy to move around. That being said, I don't recommend this for larger people unless it's on a stable/flat surface & not an uneven rocks or grass.. could easily tip over. Overall, I have one, & wish they were aliitle cheaper so I could get another one!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by redneck6497 Awful quality ... stay away
The quality of these benches are terrible. Within opening the package, on of the stabilizers came out snapped in two. Several of the dowels to put it together were cracked. I looked at the broken piece of wood, and took a look at the actual wood (since there was unfinished wood inside); really awful quality wood. I also doubt they are weather resistant for more than a storm or two. You would be lucky for these to last a season. They are going back.

Couldn't find another curved bench for our spa - this firepit bench is perfect - looks great - easy to put together. They should add spa bench to the description.
