I liked the idea of having a collapsable shelving unit for some of our garden pots, hence this seemed ideal. Its not badly made, but I am guessing that it will not stand the rigours of water ingress, it will be stored over winter but with the amount of rain we have I think it will suffer fairly quickly.
The biggest problem I found is that to combat the rain I have given the unit several coats of stain, it took 4 to give a good protective finish, this is the problem, the stain gets into the joints and caused the unit to stick solid, I cannot collapse mine without fear of it breaking which kind of defeats the object.
I apply my simple test, would I buy another, no, not in this case.
An update to this review, I was contacted by Amazon Customer Services about my review of this product and recieved a fantastic follow up service, a new item and suggestions from the manufacturer about ways to avoid this happening again by using diffeent products to protect the wood. Very very good service, 5* for this.
