Wear the gloves provided or expect the stain to transfer to your skin. It will also leave residue on surfaces-easy to clean, just be prepared. The stain still holds up on the bridge. It assembles easily and quickly. It is appropriately sturdy, this is set on a low portion of our sidewalk that we use daily, feels sturdy. Looks very cute. I added dollar store lights to the posts.
I'm giving it a light sanding so I can Poly it. It's show weather damage already but we were expecting that. Husband put hole in the top of each post for solar lights. It looks soooo good. Enjoying the compliments on it.
A couple of hours and the ability to read assembly drawings and that's all you need. Holes pre-drilled. Even had sunken drill holes so the top of the screws are flush. Power drill and a wrench is all you need. The bottom walkway platform is solid as it gets. No wobbling or anything that makes you regret the purchase.
The wood on this product is very sturdy, and it comes nicely stained and polished. It was very easy to see what I needed to do to assemble it.
This bridge came out just right! I got the unstained version as a family project to paint and assemble.
This was way easier to assemble then other reviewers stated. It is what it is...a nice little footbridge to add charm to your chosen location.
I love my bridge! When I opened the package, however, I had two bags of the same hardware, and was missing the bag with most of the bolts. I needed the bridge immediately to show off for a family event, so I bought the missing hardware at Ace.
It outside. Looks great!
This is a great little bridge, especially for the money.
Better than expected. So easy to assemble. Took 1 hour. Make sure you read all instructions first. We laid out all pieces before we began to screw together. Also we used a cordless screw driver. Made it go quicker to assemble. I ordered the natural wood so we used 3 coats of Thompson water sealer with stain. You wont be disappointed. The key is to take your time and lay out all your pieces
