Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Very high quality bench for the cost
Very impressed with the high quality and craftsmanship of this bench. It assembled tight and strong. So impressed I purchased two more to go into my contemplative garden.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amanda Quality Product at a reasonable price
This is an excellent product. In my opinion, it's worth double the price. The bench arrived within a week of my order placement, and the package was comlete, and packed safely. I noticed that some buyers thought that the instructions were poor, and the parts didn't fit well, but this wasn't my experience. It helps to have an assistant assembler, and it's vital that you have a rubber mallet, but my Wife and I assembled the bench without a problem in about an hour. It's solid, and it looks great. I just received the cleaner and sealant, and I expect to finish this work in a couple of days so I can show off the project to my friends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by oldmoviefan1 Really beautiful!
I ordered this bench because so many reviewers had rated it so highly. Took a chance, too, as so many people said the box came quite damaged, sometimes missing parts. It was delivered to us with minimal damage to the box, and with all parts inside.Yea! My husband had to put a little oomph into it to get together (as others have said), but the result is gorgeous. I just love it! We have a joke in our house - with any project, it takes three. Three trips to the store, three times ordering parts that are missing, etc. Nothing ever works for us the first time. But with this bench, the first time is the charm! It is very sturdy as well as having a beautiful colour.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimVR Outstanding Quality and Excellent Price!
This is a well crafted bench made of wood that is perfect for outdoors. It takes a little bit of skill to assemble, but if you are at least an average "handyman" you should have no trouble.
The bench was delivered quickly and was well packaged.
I purchased the bench after considerable research on-line and deciding that this particular bench was the best for my needs (bolted to my dock along the river). It had been reduced in price, so it was clearly a very good deal. I contend that in quality it is as good or better than benches I saw advertised for prices two or three times higher. (I hope this does not cause Home Depot to raise the price!)
I highly recommend it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HollyK Surprisingly good value for the money
I had been looking for a teak bench in this style for quite some time, online and in stores. Most benches similar to this one cost at least two times as much, if not more. $149 didn't seem like enough for a good quality bench but I thought I'd give it a try. Perhaps part of the reason it costs less is you have to do the assembly yourself but it's really quite easy and the instructions are good. I am very happy with the bench. It seems to be good quality wood; the pieces are nice and thick and it feels solid. The seat is contoured. With the addition of a few pillows it's quite comfy. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jock Outstanding Bench!!!!
The bench is a handsome addition to our outdoor spaces. We bought our first one a year ago and have since added two more this spring!! They are sturdy, well crafted and easy to build. The bench is comfortable and quite stylish in an appropriately understated manner. Our only disappointment is the bench is available ONLY on-line this year. So we had to really consider our purchase as the shipping cost for us was about $30 per bench, which when adding taxes, the $159 deal becomes about $200 per bench. But, it's all worth it! I highly recommend the Amazon Teak Bench!! Sturdy, Quality, Style, Longevity.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Good value, difficult assembly
Despite other reviews, I had a difficult time putting this together. It required a heavy duty mallet and some serious elbow grease. The knobs fit VERY tightly into the holes and it was difficult to approximate the pieces so that all the gaps were completely closed. I almost considered sanding down some of the joints but ultimately didn't. Instructions say "tap gently" but that's a joke. I was pounding so hard with the mallet that my wife probably thought the house was going to come down. Would recommend having another hand, preferably a very fat person who can put their weight into it. Once assembled, it felt pretty sturdy. Wood seems like a good quality hardwood. Not as heavy duty as some of the more expensive benches I've seen, but it's a good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ACTERP Unbelievable quality and construction at this $
I was a little hesitant - after looking at inexpensive wood benches for a year or so. I read some of the other positive reviews and decided to order this. I was really surprised at the qualify of the construction. Material is very heavy - and seems like it will be very durable. For $159 - I was really surprised. (very pleasently so) - have already told my neighbors this is where I got it - and that we got a great deal. Very happy with it. Goes together fairly easily - although I am somewhat handy.
