I would recommend this item to a friend.
Overall Very Pleased
Overall very nice, we experienced some splitting of two of the cedar planks, even with predrilling prior to screwing. We distressed and stained the bench prior to construction (1.5 hours). The hinges are not as pictured in the instructions; they are a heavy duty plastic and we're going to change them out. The picture in my review is not what you will receive; we 'beat-up' the wood a bit and stained with Jacobean minwax. Over all we are very pleased with the way it turned out.
ProsValue for the cost, cedar to resist bugs, appealing to the eye
ConsSplitting of wood. Not the best grade of cedar.
