I use this specific for photography. Either using it to get me above my subjects eye level (when I don't have a step ladder), equipment positioning, as well as seating or aiding in a models pose. It's well built and very sturdy, much like everything else that Matthews manufactures. It's definitely an essential piece of grip that can go a long way.

I am happy with the box but I was surprise to see the Matthews name burned into both sides of the box. I don't want their name showing up in my photos, I'd rather have my own. It took about an hour of sanding to get their name off both sides, then I had to paint in my own and stain the wood. It was a fun project but I think I had to do a lot of unnecessary work.

    I am a 275 lb. man so I had my doubts about how comfortable I'd be standing on this but I was very pleased with not only how study it was, but also how lightweight and portable it is as well.

      I'd never bought an apple box except locally, but with free shipping, it was a no brainer. It was still $-$ cheaper than the 2 places here that sell them. On top of that, since I'm not in NY, no sales tax.The Matthews boxes are my favorite, I like the build quality, and just because I have others, as well as used many others, I've just gotten really used to the oval handles and the space between the ovals (the handles)...so it feels familiar...I like it so much better than the rectangular handles, but that's probably just me. They're very sturdy.

              I love the smell of fresh cut wood. They come unfinished and smell great but you may want to coat with a stain of your choice to make them last longer and make them a thing of beauty that they are. I used Watco Danish Oil to make them resist water. Well made, strong and light for their size. Made from furniture grade ply. You will find so many ways to use these.

                  I will use the apple box as posing props for photo shoots. I loved the obvious quality and durability of the boxes. It's obvious that a lot of care went into their production. The natural color is also very appealing. I was very pleased with the price after checking many other retailers. B&H had the best deal on the cost of the boxes as well as shipping. Very, very happy photographer!

                      These are quality items that are solidly built. The large box even has additional support built in to the middle. We considered having our own UCLA facilities department construct these items, but were happy to find these items at B&H. They would have likely cost us more to have them constructed. These look like they'll last us a long, long time.

                                  don't buy the knockoffs. these are solid and everything you expect from Matthews. You may be able to find other brands a little cheaper or think you can build them, but its more of a pain than its worth. just buy these and save yourself the headache.

                                    I knew I would use this product for sitting n standing on but I've used it for propping all sorts of things. Very durable , great quality! Will likely own a few more shortly.

                                      Sturdy, versatile and simple, a must on every studio. Apple boxes are not just for photo/film industry, they have thousands of uses, best investment you can do for your grip department. This particular model could've come with a coat of protective lacquer, but I guess the option is left open to have it painted in chroma or stain it if required.
