Recalling the hardwood platform rockers from the early 1900s, this glider furniture is made from sturdy, weatherproof Brazilian eucalyptus. Available only from Hammacher Schlemmer, the glider furniture is constructed from eucalyptus that has a Janka hardness rating of 1,125—30% higher than mahogany—making it one of the densest, strongest woods in the world. Eucalyptus wood’s natural oils and tight grain prevent damage from rain, mold, and termites, allowing confident outdoor storage. The eucalyptus is kiln dried to enhance its durability, and the furniture is crafted with hardwood doweling and stainless steel hardware to ensure years of reliable use. A ball bearing suspension system provides smooth, relaxed gliding forward and backward with minimal effort. Left alone, the wood will develop a unique silvery gray patina, or it may be oiled to retain its original appearance. Assembly required.

from Houston, Texas
Shopped around alot and found this bench at a competitive price. Was bit surprised by shipping costs but still a good value. We wanted something to sit on while we watched the kids play and this was not only good looking but the price was right. Box arrived pretty beatup but worse was the smell. Box smelled very strongly of insecticide. You will need a roomy spot to assemble since nothing on the bench comes assembled. Luckily my husband is handy with a wrench and he was able to put it together in about 2 hours. You will also need a helper to hold some of the pieces together while you tighten the screws. If you are like me and you dont have alot of skill in assembly expect much longer. The bench wood has a very strong odor but that could be the brazilian eucalyptus. If you are sensitive to odors you should assemble outdoors and for sure you want to dispose of the box asap. Once assembled the bench looked great! We have it on the front lawn and it blends beautifully with our large terracota planters. We have had it for only 2 weeks and havent seen any discoloration but we will be treating it with an oil to make it more waterproof and something to maintain the color. it is very comfortable and once our Texas heat subsidizes we will be using it more often. We look forward to obtaining the rockers for the back patio. I would give it a 5 star rating if it were not for the assembly required and the fact that the hardware is NOT stainless as the cataloug stated. But those are minor compared to the beauty of the bench.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice Product, Assembly Issues

We use this product on our screen porch and it is perfect for relaxing, reading the paper in the morning, etc. It also fits neatly in a corner thus saving space.
