Wood Bench Capacity and Quality

Most wood bench makers do not test the breaking point of a bench, so the weight capacity figures you elsewhere see for a wood bench may not mean what you think.

As a better guide, a wood bench is designed to seat people and every wood bench we offer is made to support the full weight of the number of people it is designed to seat.  A four-foot wood bench is made for two adults; a five-foot wood bench can seat up to three.

Itís the quality of construction of a wood bench that counts!  A poorly made wood bench only gets worse with time.  As fasteners loosen, a wood bench can become wobbly until it feels like the bench cannot support any weight at all.  A bench well made from hard wood shorea, teak and Brazilian cherry or extra-thick cedar or pressure-treated pine will outlast - and out support - a cheap Chinese-made wood bench every time. 

You wonít find a Chinese wood bench at Shop-NC.  However, we know they are out there.  Every wood bench we offer is specifically selected for quality and fitness of use.
