Slap 2 together and a few 2x6 and you've got a picnic table!

I guess the discount reflects social distancing. This bench now seats a maximum of 1 person. Face With Tears Of Joy

Not bad for $42. Materials would probably cost about that much at HD/Lowes. Assuming its all sanded and smooth, will save some time and effort.

That doesn't look like pressure treated wood. If it's not, it will rot quickly.

Looks super uncomfortable and it looks like bare wood so you need to stain yourself.

What was the lineup situation at the Queensway location? Was thinking of going this weekend.

The MSRP is a complete and utter joke.

And to be frank, $42 is no deal. Go online for a plan, get your stuff from Home Depot and you can have the same thing for half that.

Back on topic.

You guys are hysterical. Do you think everyone is a DIY'er or a carpenter? $42 for a cheap bench is CHEAP. How much do you think 2x4's are? The quality is likely better than a regular 2x4 and the pieces are probably sanded down at least. Those saying you can make something better need to get some perspective.

Every single deal thread there are people who don't realize they're living in la la land. Go tell my wife to "create" a wood bench. Let's see how far that's going to go. lol. You guys never cease to entertain me.

But it comes with the hardware and pictorial. So... totally worth it.
