Adequately serves my needs for a stool to shave my legs on in my new walk-in shower, but it does take up a good amount of space. Be sure to measure it out... it was almost twice as large as I was expecting from the photo (but my fault because I didn't scrutinze the online measurements). Not all the drill holes lined up (thus two stars for workmanship) and I was not strong enough to screw the legs in all the way by myself, so required assistance from my husband for assembly. Would be nice if they had some way to adjust leg length as mine are not quite even, making it prone to tip if you don't put your weight down right in the middle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suziann GREAT PURCHASE!!!
In the process of remodeling our main bathroom, I choose a deeper soaking Kohler tub with the overflow closer to the top of the tub, in order that we would have more water in the tub to soak in!
I also chose very sturdy hand bars, for getting in & out of the tub. But after my husband had back surgery, his legs were weak so I thought if we had one of these stools, he could sit down on it if he got tired.
It also comes in handy to prop your foot on when shaving your legs.
I have mine on a bubbley mat so it doesn't move or make marks on the tub. (I haven't tried it any other way) So far we like it a lot!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AinMIA Decent stool but not amazing
I have a big shower and was worried about finding a stool that would fit and not take up too much room. This was the perfect size and made of the perfect materials and looks great. Assembly wasn't too bad - did use a drill to screw in something like 16 screws (4+ for each leg). It seems sturdy but does rock back and forth a little because my tile floor in the shower is not perfectly flat. I suspect that the square or rectangular stool might be more sturdy on uneven slate floors. Overall, I would recommend the stool and seems to be the nicest stool I have seen out there for its price.

Nice looking piece, but assembly will have you scrambling for more tools than you expect.
19 screws attach the 4 legs to the seat and the "pre drilled holes" are little more than pinpricks, some of which are not correctly located (location would result in asymmetric legs). I needed to re-drill and relocate the screw locations to avoid stripped screwheads, skinned knuckles and wobbly, misplaced legs.
Also, the teak is unfinished/unsealed - odd for a product sold as a "shower seat". In a wet environment, the wood will gray and raise its grain over time.

Product is attractive and good quality. The only complaint I have is that it is a little unstable. The legs are possitioned in such a way that when I put my foot on the stool, I have to be very careful because it tips easily. The legs are not possitioned in such a way that is condusive to ballance, and the stool is prone to falling over. Over all, it's a good buy. I just wish they made it a little more stable because I've had my toes squished by a falling can of shaving cream quite a few times now as the stool topples over.

I have found the teak stool and bench with shelf to be of suprisingly good quality. The materials are very well finished and the product is remarkably stable. After looking at other sites for pricing teak, I feel I received a great value. The online chat service regarding a shipping question was extremely prompt and exacting and follow through was flawless. The Fed-Ex tracking was interesting and fun to follow.

I purchased this stool because we needed a ledge in our shower for grooming, if you will. This stool was much less expensive than others on the market. It works for what I need. It was easy to put together. However, within a month, the seat was spittling. (We do not sit on it.) It looks as if the wood was not glued together adequately. Still, for $70., I expected better. I may still take it to our local Home Depot...or not.

This is a nice shower stool in appearance and I ordered it because of the fact it would fit in a corner of my shower BUT the legs are situated poorly and each time I tried to prop my foot or sit on it it fell over. When my husband re-situated the placement of the legs it works well now but was too expensive to replace. If you aren't handy with tools and able to move the legs around to be properly placed - DON'T BUY this one!
