Once put together this is a very sturdy piece of furniture. I would have given it 5 stars but have to admit it's not the easiest thing to put together. It took me 5-6 hours to get the project completed. Make sure sure you have a bottle of wood glue because the little bottle it comes with was dried out. But seriously there wouldn't have been enough glue in the little one it came with to finish the bench even if it wasn't dried out. Overall the end result was worth all the effort but make sure you set aside enough time and bank your patience because you'll need it.
Only negative thus far is glue supplied for assembly was unusable, as it had hardened. Packing of box was well done.
I like the roll down feture of the racks. However the unit is quite heavy and the door is not easy to open with the small knobs they have on the door. I had to install an extra handle on the door and some cushioning felt pads to reduce the slamming noise of the door.
It comes unassembled. My husband had to put it together and it took 3 hours. The product looks practical in the picture but it is not that practical. When you fill it and try to close it, it snaps and makes a very loud noise. I put some sticky pads to the openings but it didn't help. I only like the fact that it is very nice looking other than it is not that practical.
