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
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.
