I ordered two sleeper benches (1.5m and 1.2m). They did not fit together very well. The round holes in which the pegs of the legs were meant to go in were much too small. I had to get a handy man over to carve out larger holes to fit them together. This took over 2 1.2 hrs just to make the holes bigger. Something which I did not count on. Aside from that, the benches look good and are functional.
The delivery man who brought them over was very nice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Margaret Kirby Poor and should have been delivered in its state
When delivered the wood immediately looked like it had green mould over 50% of the wood and not the perfect looking bench displayed in the photo. I called Forest who advised it was the copper treatment and it's natural to have this. They said leave it the open air for a couple of days and it will disappear. It's been over a week and it's appearance has only slightly improved. It actually has bumps and uneven to touch which I have been advised will need sanding and a bit of TLC to get it looking good. I was also advised that it has been treated but that it's probably been stacked against other wood for quite a long time and hasn't dried properly.
It should surely arrive ready to erect and enjoy?
I will be complaining to Forest directly.
