I was looking for a stand to hold my small collection of alpines and this one looked ideal. It is. I have stained it green with an outdoor wood preservative and it takes pride of place on our patio.
It comes flat-packed and hinged so it can be used either free-standing or secured to a wall.
I can only assume that the reviewer who described the stand as flimsy was send the wrong item as mine is very solid. I suppose overloading could possibly put strain on some of the hinges - they could be strengthened if required.
