I purchased this storage box for my outdoor patio to store barbecue accessories and charcoal. It arrived well packaged and no damage. The instructions for assembly are pretty clear, but I found it takes more than 1 person to affix the top portion of the box to the foundation, and it requires having some special tools if you want it put together correctly. The hinges are affixed to the top portion of the box, but there are no pre-drilled holes on the bottom portion of the box, and you need to carefully align the hinges and be sure the screws are properly centered so you don't damage the wood by drilling too close to one edge. Again, it's a great storage box, I am happy that I purchased it, but this definitely requires more skill than the average person may possess for assembly.
I bought it on clerance for $35 plus $10 for handling fee and free shipping bc i purchased over $100. So i guess it's good for $45... I've purchased a table from World Market before and had to return because the wood cracked after 3 months in the sun. This storage box will be placed under my patio so I'm hoping it will hold up!
The directions said you need two people to put it together. So it sat in the box for over a week until I finally tackled it on my own. The directions said the only tool you need to provide is a phillips screw driver. I pre-drilled the screw holes with an electric drill so the screws wouldn't split the hard wood. Then I lubricated the screws by rubbing them in a bar of soap. I completed the assembly in about an hour. Its been doing its job for about a week.
