4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, 23 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good product with a few snags. The overall effect of these 17 items brings class to the garden. The table and chairs are study but not too heavy. The chairs rock when placed on flat ground suggesting some sloppy manufacturing tolerances. A little fettling might be needed.
The colour of the wood is pleasing with variations in the shading effect of real wood. There are labels indicating 'legal Indonesian wood'. I would judge it to be new growth and not reclaimed and there is some splitting around a few joints.
The delivery was slow but may have been the local courier and they did not deliver on the day I asked for. One of the chairs was broken where the arms joined the back legs. The suppliers quickly sent a replacement. Another chair has small cracks in the same area which I have only just spotted.
The design is good and the table top parts easily to reveal the extending section. Unfortunately there is no umberella hole when the table is closed up as it would have to be drilled through the extending section as well. When the table is extended the hole is revealed and set off nicely with the supplied brass coloured metal ring.
The chairs do not fit completly under the table but the arms do go under the table top. The cushion pads are of good comfortable quality. They have a hard wearing nylon feel but acceptable.
Assembly was not too complicated but the instructions are a little sparse and I did not spot the small lettered labels indicating which way round the legs and support should be aligned. Not a serious problem but then some of the supplied dowels did not fully engage. I may need to drill new holes but the table is still strong when assembled.
Dealing with the supplier by phone was friendly and personal.

Eventually all covers rot away. You have to find one that lasts, looks good and survives gales, torrential rain, snow, frost and whatever else our wonderful British weather can throw at us (it did this year) This cover still looks new after six months of use. I would buy other Bosmere products.

This review is from: What About Me? (MP3 Download)
As a lifelong fan of the late Richie Havens this album brought new and unobtainable material to me in digital CD form. I met Richie once at a rare gig in London. He was a lovely man and this album shows the passion he had for the world and its people. Top of my all time favourite list would be 'What about me' which asks the question about the underdogs, the downtrodden and the forgotten in life. Other classics made famous by other artists get the raw energy Richie Havens treatment bringing them to new heights of meaning and purpose in our confused world. The young sogwriters of today should listen to this album for inspiration, interpretation and articulation of a song. Superb!


Planet Waves Acoustic Guitar Quick-Release System

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great innovations., 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a gigging acoustic guitarist using three different instruments these are brilliant. The time to attach and unatach is very quick and the system is totally safe. I would suggest to the company they look at a similar product for the other end of the guitar i.e. the strap button. Then you would have no strap detachment worries at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars sturdy chairs at reasonable price, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are smart looking chairs and felt strong enough for me, 16st. Good colour and stylish. Delivery time from this company was also good but I had to return them as they were a companion to a table I bought which was not suitable. Beware the return is at your cost.

How do you rate tiny batteries? They do what they are intended to do and last the expected time. The price is the real deal swinger.

These were used to replace those small wheeled castors which disfigure carpets. Much happier with these and easy to fit into the holes left by the castors.

Okay for my hammer throwing shoes which require a thinner pad. If you have intense pain see my review of Orthoworld Silicone blue spot heel cups.

These are not bad - thin but supportive if you need a thinner pad for certain shoes. However see my review of Orthoworld Silicone blue spot heel cups.
