Good, but needs work
April 20, 2014
This floor standing rack is attractive, but its stability is questionable. I improved the stability by shimming the too widely notched legs. The tightness of the legs could also be improved by supplying flat washers in addition to lock washers. Flat washers would help prevent the screws from digging into the piloted holes.
Another problem is the cork beverage coasters applied with an adhesive resembling double-sided tape; it refused to adhere for long to the rough-bottomed holes. The four coasters were curled at the edges and one dropped out when I removed the top from the shipping box. I tried re-applying them, but they would curl up in no time at all. The coasters required silicone adhesive to permanently glue them in place, which is what the company should have used if they weren't trying to rush the stand through production.
The Chinese have to do a better job for this price.
I recommend this stand with the reservation that you don't mind necessarily improving the things you purchase. With all the work I had to do to get this stand in shape, perhaps I should give it three stars. However, it is attractive and works well after it's "fixed," so a generous four stars.
