Winsome Wooden Storage Bench

we love theis bench in our entry was just what we wanted!
Wayfair furniture choices
Jacqueline from United States– Verified Buyer
This cabinetbench was the perfect solution to having to keep a door from opening onto a wall of china displayed there, plus a place to sit and put on-take off shoes at entrance to the tiny house I had to recently down-size to. Even though it says two person assembly, I was able to assemble it alone. I love the wide selection of furniture etc. available at this website.
Dunno about the 400 lb weight rating
Jong Rho from Mesa, AZ– Verified Buyer
Having bought a couple of Winsome storage benches rated at 200 lbs, I was pleased to see this one rated at 400 lbs so I ordered it. In terms of hardware it comes with the same number of large screws (8) to fix the top and bottom pieces to the sides as the the 200 lb rated benches do. However the holes for the wooden dowels on the side pieces are so large that there is no way that the dowels provide any kind of strength or stability. The only thing that I would say is strengthened is the middle of the bench as there is a wooden piece that fits between the upper and lower pieces. However, due to the oversized holes for the wooden dowels, the side by side tensile strength is suspect and I would not want to rock side to side while sitting on it as it is very shaky. As another poster suggested I am going to get some L brackets to strengthen that part. Without it, I think this is a flimsier than the benches rated at 200 lbs.

Some pieces were already damaged when we opened the box. Nothing a little glue and wood stain couldn't hide. Assembly only slightly harder than typical Ikea. For the price, it's better than I expected.
Not What I Expected!

The wood was a mess with bad marks all over it and it was missing two little screws. I still don't have the doors on because of missing screws. The pieces don't match up all and the screw holes were not in very good. I worked on it too long to take it apart now. I am not pleased at all.
Winsome Walnut Bench w/ Storage
Pamela Goldrick from New Bedford, MA– Verified Buyer
The finished product looks great but putting it together was horrible even with two people as recommended! Pegs very loose didn't fit together or hold pieces together at all.
Margaret from IRVINE, CA– Verified Buyer
I ordered 2 of these late on a Friday, and they were at my door on Monday....amazing! A friend put them together for me and had no problem at all. We will put some L brackets inside to make they sturdier, anthough they might not really be neecessary. The piece along the back, on the top, wiggles, but some wood glue will probably take care of that. Great product for the price!
a so-so deal

It looks nice, using it as a bench in the entrance porch. Be prepared to have to fix the odd problem while assembling this bench. Certainly not the snap-together proccess I am used to.
Nick from The OC, CA– Verified Buyer
Fast shipping and solid wood were the only two positive I can cite. The instruction was adequate but the assembly left me longing for better-thought out and well-engineered furniture like Ikea. The pieces did not fit well with the corners surface not flushed together, and there was a pre-existing 2-in crack in one of the side panels. The surface finishing could certainly used a few more sanding. After assembly, the bench was rickety, which was solved using right angle brackets through out. Now it is sturdier and serviceable. Certainly not a good value.

using it for the end of the bed for storage. Made a cushion for it and it looks really great. Matches everything in room wonderfully. A little disappointed in the finish. There were some scratches and nicks in the product. Nothing we couldn't live with. It was very simple to put together and the instructions were easy to understand. I would definitely recommend this bench. We are pleased.
