Review Summary - 4 out of 5 based on 2 ratings.
Sort reviews by:

A very solid wooden construction which I am sure will last for many years. My only reservation was that on receipt of the slats and posts they had clearly been wet for some time (very damp, signs of surface mould etc) . This made the dovetail tongues on the slats too big to slot into the dovetail slots, even with hefty swipes from a mallet.

Luckily I had garage space to allow all the slats and posts to dry out sufficiently (took over two weeks) before using the mallet again. Considerable mallet force was still required but at last the slats went home.

Had I been able to assemble the composer when I received the modules then I would have awarded 5 stars.

Will I receive a timeslot for my delivery?

As we use a wide range of carriers for delivery, you may not receive a time slot for your order.
