These are simple, tasteful, and useful boxes. I like that you can stain them for a different look, if you in fact plan to have them in a photo.

What do you say about an apple box?

I kind of struggled with what to say about this. It's an apple box. Pretty ubiquitous. But I can say that it's really well-made, sturdy, it can handle my weight which is not light and it's currently a great stand for my editing PC that I need to keep up off the floor and away from dust. Nice value and I will buy more.

Its sturdy, and it does its job. It is assembled nicely. However, the surface definitely needs sanding and polishing. On the attached photo you can see the splinters, and overall surface quality. I primarily wanted that box to step on it, so this will do. To be able put a person on it Ill need to fix it. We have boxes by other brands, they are exceptional quality at the better price. Buy only if you have time for DIY projects.

Pine? Whatever it is, it is plywood. And every one I have had has been quite durable
