Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice piece but... The stool is sturdy and the style lovely. They did not however, do much sanding on any part of the piece. Hence, it is very crude. September 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Quality VERY, VERY sturdy. I have two of these now since I liked the first so much. We now use them at a rustic dining table at the ends with benches along the sides. Would totally recommend this product. June 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by very sturdy, perfect size - hefty but not huge, somewhat heavy, but excellent for giving character to an unused corner, to hold clothes while showering, etc. did not notice much of an odor when unpacked. my favorite thing about it is its rustic appearance, informal, not stuffy. June 17, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Quality This is an excellent stool to put by the door for people to sit and remove their shoes. I like the fact it doesn't smell like stinky paint/varnish. The only issue I had was it was very dirty when I received it, but once cleaned up, no problem May 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Solid. Solid. Solid. Arrived packaged extremely well. The best quality. It's heavy. It stays where you put it. I have in my steam shower. It's not too big, not too small. Great height. And it looks fantastic. Very comfortable. Perfect. Absolutely perfect. May 5, 2012

Answer: 
I don't have a sample here in the office anymore to measure, but from what I remember you should be able to. Looking at the photo and dimensions I would safely say you should have at least 14" inches between the legs.

Answer: 
I didn't use this particular one in the shower, but I do have one similar that is used in the shower. I haven't had any problems with mine, though I always wipe mine down after I use it.

Answer: 
I have only used the stool twice since it arrived two weeks ago. In the shower and steaming in the shower. It dries nicely and hasn't lost color. It's very heavy and strong. Doesn't shift around on the shower floor. It stays put.

Answer: 
This stool is broad and sturdy. The only downside from an accessibility perspective is that there are not arm rests to use as leverage for getting up. It is, however, a pretty and chic bath stool :)

Answer: 
No, it won't. Be sure to "shower" it down after bathing also. When cleaning the bathing area, if you don't lift the teak stool out, tip the ends up and clean beneath the legs of the teak stool. It won't tip over. Use a cleaner designed to kill germs, such as 409. It wouldn't hurt to reoil it occasionally, ask locally which oil is best, allow hours for it to dry.

Answer: 
I have not used this bench in the shower, but teak is supposed to be weather-durable. Neither have I measured the height, but it does seem to be as high as an ADA toilet.

Answer: 
You would need to regularly treat it with teak oil or a teak sealer or it will turn silver. As long as your allowing it to dry out between uses it should get mil-dewy. If it does it can be brushed off with a wire brush.

Answer: 
It wouldn't be a good idea, although you can ask which oils to use which can produce a darker color.
If you wanted to use the teak bench for something other than bathing, why shouldn't you? It is a nice, simple design.

Answer: 
It should still retain it's ability to be water resistance. You could always use a waterproof stain or varnish.

Answer: 
Probably too tight a fit. Mine is slightly more than 19" in the middle of the seat, but over 20" at each edge.
