      Needed posing boxes quickly and these are beautifully built. Strong and crafted so smoothly that all of the bridal gowns remained safe and subjects were comfortable for all of our sessions. The 1/2 box was perfect for the models to lay on our floors.

      I find myself often using this half box. Not sure how I lived without it. For the price it's a no brainer.

        Comments about Matthews Half Apple Box:

        This is very sturdy and quite handy apple box.

        You can put a 200 lb object on this and it won't break in my opinion. Again the downside, as echoed by other people, is the Matthews branding on the sides.

            You just never know when you will need a half apple box for posing, or propping something up.

            I just wish they came in black. (I painted mine black with Chalkboard Paint)

                  I use this product in two ways. One to elevate either me or my subject but also as step to help my aging father-in-law from his wheelchair into his truck. It is nice because it is light weight, stable and the built in handle makes it easy for anyone to control. IT would be nice to come with a slip proof coating as an option.

                    Comments about Matthews Half Apple Box:

                    These are quality items that are solidly built. 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.

                    It's support a truck - and because it'll support a truck don't expect it to be light weight. And, yes - it's easy to use.
