          Very sturdy, solid wood, easy to assemble.
          These chairs are great and look like they will last well. The chair base is already assembled and we just have to bolt that onto the back and front legs. This is done with wooden dowels, bolts (with spring washers and washers) and screws.
          Packaging is excellent with Styrofoam surrounding all parts and also filling interior spaces.
          The hardware parts are attached to the outer box with a red tether so they can’t get lost. Inside the bag were 7 smaller bags, each clearly babled and constainingthe exact number of items needed. A 5mm Allen wrench is supplied for tightening the bolts. I used my own 5mm hex tool for increased speed.

I used my own 5mm hex tool for increased speed.
          Assembly was easy and the instructions are clear.
          The chairs are made from solid wood, well machined so that they fit together well. The base is strengthened with small metal brackets.
          Small nit picks (not enough to lose a star!)
          The instructions said we would need safety glasses and a spirit level.
          The steps make no mention of the spirit level, nor could one be used.
          What is needed, however, is a screwdriver.
          The instructions also say we should not use power tools, but one does need to drive in two screws that would require considerable effort without a power driver.
          The part label for the chair back (A) is attached on the back of the backrest. Removing the label leaves a small sticky area that needs some attention to remove properly. If the label was placed on the are where the seat attaches it would be invisible after assembly and would not have to be removed.
          Chair is rated for 280 lbs. (I suspect that they will handle more easily so long as one does not rock back on them) Read Less
          Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Assemble, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy, Well Made

          This is very sturdy and well made.
          This is not a plastic product, the arms are made of aluminium magnesium alloy. The suction cups have a very nice locking feature that makes them suck onto the mounting surface well. The suction cups also come with a small plastic disk to prevent dust from getting stuck on them before use. The knobs used to tighten each joint enclose a metal nut that is threaded onto a metal bolt. No plastic threads anywhere.
          There were no instructions included but the assembly was pretty obvious, as was the method of attaching them to a smooth surface. Note that the turning direction of the two knobs to lock the suction cups are different.

          There are plenty of joints allowing a very wide range of positions.
          The springs that hold the ‘jaws’ on the tablet are pretty strong and there is no chance of the tablet falling out of the jaws.
          We attached a Nexus 7” tablet and mounted the holder onto a vertical tiled wall in the kitchen. It holds onto the wall fine. Pressing the screen does make it wobble about somewhat, but I think that is to be expected. We plan on using voice commands mostly anyway.
          Note that the minimum width of the item to be held is 4 inches and the maximum is 10”. This means that smaller phone will have to be placed lengthways into the holder, but since the holder can be rotated, you can still mount the device in either ‘landscape’ or ‘portrait’ orientation.
          Note that you do need to find opposite edges that do not have buttons where the jaws grab onto the edges, and keep in mind that you will probably also want a power cable attached at the same time, so take care not to cover the power port either. The power cable port of the Nexus 7 is in the middle of a short side and we were able to position it so that the power cable just misses the jaws, and the power and volume buttons on a long edge are still accessible.

          DESCRIPTION: Native Soil is a natural fertilizer made from nutrient-rich organic waste products that are sustainably-sourced and sold in the United States. A unique blend of powdered algae and kelp, dehydrated beer grains, sterilized municipal waste and food scraps creates a high quality, sustainable product that improves your soil and helps your plants really pop. Plants need a handful of specific nutrients to thrive things like Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Sulfur. While most fertilizers provide these basic nutrients, Native Soil goes even further to provide organic matter and carbon. Its a synthetic-free, all-in-one solution for a bountiful yield, week-after-week of the entire growing season. USES: Fertilize new and existing plants, mix into your soil as a conditioner, mix into your compost or run it through your hydroponic system (drip irrigation is not recommended unless you have a good filter). Your tomatoes, fruit trees, flowers, hemp and grasses will bloom longer, stronger and with superior flavor.

          Nice upcycled materials produce a wonderful, fine grained, fertilizer.
          This is a very eco-friendly product in a thoughtfully designed and produced packaging.
          I have sprinkled some over my Amaryllis seedlings, and I am confident that they will get some good nutrients.
          The bag it comes in, can be recycled too!.
          Fertilizer content:
          Nitrogen 5.5%
          Phosphate 4.5%
          Potash 0.4%
          Calcium 2.2%
          Iron 1.5%
          Sodium 0.1%
          Made in the USA

          Very nice all in one tool for making holes to take 3/4” pipe. It comes with a small Allen wrench to remove the center bit.
          This hole cutter has a diameter of 1⅛” so that it takes a ¾” pipe perfectly.
          The center drill bit is tapered so that one can get a nice small hole started, and then it makes that bigger before the outer teeth engage in the material. A spring around the inner bit ejects the cut out disk very effectively. (It goes flying off!)
          There is also a flange around the cutting diameter that prevents the tool from going too far through after the cut is finished.
          The carbide tipped teeth cut through the metal very well.
          Made in Taiwan
          Pros: Accurate, All In One, Durable, Easy to Use, Strong

          The Husky 12 in. mud pan is made of heavy-gauge stainless steel. It is watertight thanks to laser-welded seams. Tapered ends and sides provide a comfortable grip.

          So nice and shiny, it is like a piece of artwork!
          There is no skimping on the length, the short side is 12 ½” long, the top edge being 13 ¾” long and 4 ¼” wide.
          The husky logo has been nicely etched onto the ends and sides.
          The welding is very neat and smooth, and it is watertight.
          No sharp edges, easy to clean off.
          In addition to drywall mud, this smart looking pan can be used as a small drinking trough for small animals, or even a baking pan for hotdogs, etc….
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Easy to Work With, Good Shape, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Light Weight, Stylish
