Cheap looking but Possibly Effective
Comments about Product:
These are made with half bamboo sticks, which is half the strength one might want. However that does ensure lightweight and simple movability. Just looks rather tacky and not like an heirloom piece that's been in the garden since your mom was a little girl. I hope to keep mine dry as I do not trust how many wettings it can take. Piece arrived with insufficient screws but 13 silica bags, which surely is overkill as they were all in a clump together. It is my intention to use it as an outside second floor reading nook, but I do not know how long it will last in the sun and don't trust it for a moment in the rain. Over-priced for the quality, or lack thereof.

Just Not The Same
Comments about Product:
About 3 years ago I purchased a similar bench from P&H, the bench seat on this one is over a foot shorter. Not enough room to seat 2 adults comfortably. It's well made but won't disassemble for storage as easily as our original one. It's quite sturdy though.

Love these benches!
Comments about Product:
Easy to fold up and put away for winter, will last for years this way;not as long if left out yearround. A great look in the garden or on a deck or porch. Very easy to move from place to place as needed. A good place to rest while gardening!

Beautiful
Comments about Product:
First off, the assembly is a snap. What assembly? The bench arrives folded in half, just open it, attach four screws and you're done! It looks gorgeous at the end of a path in a zen garden, and that's what I bought it for... Certainly won't be sitting on it, as I weigh approx. 250 pounds and I doubt it would hold me: the seat of the bench is not made from whole bamboo stems, but rather from thin layers of it, maybe 1/4 of a steam each. Other than that, recommended for lighter people!

This bench was a cinch to assemble. I use it in a large tiled shower, with a hand towel thrown over it, so that it's easy to sit and shave my legs! Fits perfectly and is sturdy. COOL!!!

Bamboo Bench
Comments about Product:
I wanted this for a small space on my front porch. I always have more people than will fit on the two chairs I have out there. The bench works well, but I need to make a pad for the top so it will be a little more comfortable.

Exactly what I wanted
Comments about Product:
I am very happy with my bamboo bench. I placed it against the wall of the house on a small front porch. I'm using it to hold a small fern in a basket at one end and a place to sit on the other. It looks wonderful with the bamboo wood chimes and the pagoda-like line of the porch roof. The fact that it can be folded up for storage during the winter is a definite plus.

Disappointed!
Comments about Product:
The bamboo is varnished with something shiny that peels off in big flakes! This happened after just a few months outdoors in a mild climate. As one other reviewer said, I may just peel all of it and go natural. Otherwise a nice piece for the price.

Didn't last long!
Comments about Product:
After only about 6 months, the shiny finish started to peel off in big papery patches. I like the overall look of the bench, so I might go ahead and peel all of it, and see if the natural bamboo will look OK. We don't have extreme weather here, so it should be an indoor piece if you have very sunny or cold weather where you live.

Beautiful indoors
Comments about Product:
The bamboo bench makes a wonderful coffee table. I needed a piece to match the papasan chairs my teenage daughter chose as a living room set, and everything else seemed to clash. Since the chairs are also bamboo, the bench was perfect! Glasses with small bases need support, however, from a tray or plate.

EXCELLENT GARDEN BENCH, WELL-ENGINEERED
Comments about Product:
Was SO easy to put together! I'm a 63 year old woman. took me about 1 1/2 minutes. It's light enough to lift, yet heavy enough not to blow away. Lends your garden an Asian, oriental-garden look, but can also blend well with other garden themes. I use the two I purchased in a side garden used for meditation. It will match bamboo wind-chimes perfectly!!! And two look great in any configuration.

Useful
Comments about Product:
We have two of these benches. They are attractive, sturdy and are handy for garden path seating. They can also be used as an extra low table Easy to assemble if the screw holes match up. They matched in one bench, but not in the other. If always left outside they will look weathered and be difficult to clean.

Folding Bamboo Bench
Comments about Product:
What makes it difficult to assemble is that tiny holes have to be lined up before screwing parts together. You cannot see when they are lined up. We used a straightened paperclip to stick through one hole to find the other hole before screwing the parts together.

Nice addition to garden area
Comments about Product:
I wasn't sure exactly where I would use this in my garden when I purchased it, but I loved the way it looked and knew that I would use it somewhere. At the moment it's sitting on a paved walkway off the deck between potted plants up against a privacy screen. Assembly was very easy and only required screwing the legs in place. It's very sturdy and it didn't wobble when I stood on it to hang a windchime in place on the overhanging eaves (though this is probably not recommended!) Can be used as a bench for sitting and also makes a great place to sit smaller potted plants. I've only had it about a month so cannot comment on how well it will hold up in the elements, but it looks exactly as pictured on the website. It's not too heavy to move around easily, but, as I mentioned earlier, is still sturdy. Highly recommend as a very versatile and lovely accent for the garden.

Third Bench - Very Versatile
Comments about Product:
After the 1st one, we learned to NOT attach screws. Just tap 2 leg supports to middle for bench, coffee table, plant holders. Tap leg supports to edge & instant lightweight folding bench to carry thru woods 1/2 mile walk for picnic lunch at our creek. Hate the sealer & flaking but will all be gone soon to weather naturally.

Love this bench
Comments about Product:
Easy peasy! I decided not to put screws in as it would then be easier to move around or store as needed on a whim. FAR more comfortable than a bamboo bench I tried at a local store. I was able to use this as both a bench and a 'coffee table' for my party so I appreciate the versatility. I will probably make a cushion for it, though it really isn't necessary.

I put it next to my goldfish pond and it looks lovely and is surprisingly comfortable. I just got this today so can't address its durability. Living in a place that gets snow in winter, I think I'll store it over that season.

Comments about Product:
If you are looking for a Japanese style decorative bench this works great. It will support the average person's weight sitting but won't bear someone heavy or standing. The lacquer finish is flaking off mine. Not a big issue but they should just have left it plain to weather naturally (which it ends up doing anyway) if you leave it in the yard. It does fold flat with little effort so moving or storing is easy. I would order again.
