Comments about International Caravan Royal Tahiti Outdoor Balau Storage Bench:

This storage unit is both an attractive piece of outdoor furniture as well as being well built. Assembly was easy although a couple modifications had to be made. After reading previous reviews I was concerned about the quality of the small wood screws that are used to hold the lid hinges to the bench and the brackets that hold the top up. People had complained that the screws snapped off when being installed and in one case suggested that they needed to purchase better quality screws. The screws that come with the bench are brass which are not as strong as steel screws but much better match the natural wood of the bench. The problem I discovered on close examination is that the pilot holes pre-drilled in the bench for the screws are just not large enough. As soon as I attempted to fit a screw into them I noticed the screw was binding up. Having snapped many a screw off in attempting to force them into a too-small of a hole I realized that the holes need to be drilled out with a larger diameter drill. I used a 1/8" drill bit to do that and then found that the screws went in much easier and still had enough grip to hold the hinges to the bench.

The other minor issue dealt with the location of the pre-drilled holes which did not match completely with the holes in the hinges. To solve that problem I inserted round toothpicks into the holes to plug them before drilling the new 1/8" holes next to them. Both of these minor modifications took only a few extra minutes.

Comments about International Caravan Royal Tahiti Outdoor Balau Storage Bench:

The wood this box is made from is of nice quality and each panel seems well constructed. The instructions are a little confusing - be careful when assembling it. Getting the lid on is tricky and requires two people. The included screws are garbage - they will strip if you are not careful. Once assembled, though, it is sturdy and looks nice. Great pool storage box that you can sit on. WAY nicer than the Suncast plastic one I had before, and for about the same money!

    Comments about International Caravan Royal Tahiti Outdoor Balau Storage Bench:

    Like it but was a pain to connect the lid--the screws kept breaking when you tightened them. Bought new screws and the same thing happened. Had to purchase screws and nuts. Had to drill through the wood completely and put in the screws and attach the nuts. In digging out the broken screws had to fill with wood filler. Was a real pain to complete this project. Have 8 cushions and it will only hold 6. :(

        Comments about International Caravan Royal Tahiti Outdoor Balau Storage Bench:

        A really beautiful piece of furniture, so much so that I almost want to keep it in the house rather than put it out on the porch. My only complaint is that the assembly instructions are poorly drawn and a bit confusing. The assembly is pretty easy once you figure it out, but would be much easier if the instructions were more clear. Very happy with it, tho, now that it's done.
