Got it for my dad for fathers day. We have a fire pit in the backyard and would always just keep firewood in a pile on the ground next to it. Thought this would help to make the yard look a little nicer and cleaner and make it easier for my dad to stack and organize the firewood. It works great at keeping all the wood stacked and together however, I would definitely make sure you have a leveled surface to put it on such as concrete because otherwise it doesn't look very good. The actual metal itself doesn't bend but the entire rack as a whole will kinda bend and look sloppy if you put it on dirt or grass that's not very leveled. I tried to put more dirt under the legs that were sagging lower and packed it down really hard but it didn't help much. It still keeps all the wood in the rack but I should have put some two by fours underneath it so that it was leveled before putting the wood on it. Then it would look much better. The sides also kind of sag out to the sides a little when ya put a lot of weight on it which also kinda looks sloppy but like I said, it gets the job done. It also helps to let the wood get a lot more air circulation with the space underneath. We never use the cover that it came with because we use the fire pit so often but it does fit well if you cut all of your wood to roughly the same size.
