Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by golflvr Should have checked height before purchasing
This bench is quite short so not sure how I'll use it. The "predrilled holes for the legs to attach to the top aren't there, but should be easy to drill for the brackets. Wood is pretty good quality. For the price won't return as would have to pay shipping. Can give it to my granddaughter to play with.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by alcortje More work than you might think
The one page manual is a copy of a copy of a bad copy. Fortunately, the assembly is not difficult because the number of parts are limited and the line drawing on the manual is just about legible.
The parts might have mated together when everything was routed but no more. The wood is pine and the parts warped and twisted making joining them difficult. I had to use a Dremel tool to relieve a couple points to get the fit correct.
Everything was well sanded and required very little sanding after assembly on my bench so YMMV. All parts were included in the package which is refreshing. Once the bench was put together and the glue allowed to set we tested the bench to 300 pounds. I don't expect it to hold that much weight but one never knows. I finished with a nice oak stain from Min-Wax.
This bench is to be used for a photo studio so it needs to be solid. Other than the twisting and warp of the wood it pretty much is as expected. I put it together in a 90 minutes, including the time to relieve the inlets for the joints.
I would recommend this as long as you understand that you might have some extra work to put in on this bench. Highly recommend setting it up to check fit before you open a bottle of glue or touch and nails.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Eldeetx Great little bench!
Nice little workbenches. After being sanded and stained they are cute. Two of them together will serve as a little coffee table for daughter's small apartment - with a small wood panel or tiles installed over the top.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by BillyBob Excellent Stand for 10 Gallon Aquarium!
Excellent 10 Gallon Aquarium Stand!
The stand is solid, sturdy, and affordable! It took me about 30 minutes to assemble the thing. I also stained it with a red or Cabernet stain and then varnished it with polyurethane. It came out beautiful, and looks like an expensive piece of furniture. It is showcased in my living room to showoff my future well planted aquarium of Guppies. A Guppy is a tropical aquarium fish. I am now thinking about ordering 2 more of these stands as I design my Indoor Aquaponics System with Waterfall!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by workshopwonders Good Solid Workbench for young children
The workbench was very easy to assemble ( I did it sitting in a lawn chair.). I bought the item so that my young grandchildren would have an appropriate height workbench to use when pounding nails in projects. The top pieces in both of the workbenches I purchased had large knot holes in them. In order to protect the surface and also make it more user friendly, I purchased 3/8" MDF board. I will attach this additional surface to the bench once I have routed the holes to match the workbench. Overall, I am very pleased. I intend to order a third one for the next grandchild coming of age to use tools.
