Note: the description says pine, and it looks like pine, but the insert says fir. Which is technically a pine!
Very nice, simple, solid wood, squared-up well. I glued it as I was putting it together (took 15 minutes), which I always recommend to stop any wobbles, but the double screws will go a long way on their own anyway. Giving it a coating of double-boiled linseed oil brought out the grain very nicely, and will help it last.
Own 2 of these, never put a pair of shoes on them! Their size allows them to fit into smallish places that need to have 'stuff' up off the floor and into some sort of organization and these fit the bill perfectly. They are also very sturdy and seem to be able to hold a reasonable amount of weight. Planning to buy a third one today!
