Product review: Way Basics Eco Stackable Storage
Each storage cube is made out of corrugated cardboard covered with paper lining. The cardboard boards are held together by small wooden pegs and strips of fairly thin 3M glue tape. These connections are not strong if the force is not exactly perpendicular to the connection. In practical use this means the cube comes apart easily if something pushes on the walls sideways. I found out that using the cube with books and other heavy items causes them to fall apart and now use the cube to store light clothing items. The cube can be used with the opening either up or to the side (i.e. all walls are finished).
I got the cedar color, which is natural wood color. The finish is neat looking but it is pretty obvious that it is not real wood. The size of the cube is 12" width x 14" height x 10.5" depth.
The assembly was pretty easy, the boards are connected by wooden pegs and glue tape. No tools were needed except on the last step when I used a mallet to make tight connections on the last step.
Note that each sale is for one cube. The pictures that show more than one cube show how the cubes can be put together as a demonstration.
This storage cube was provided to me for testing and review as part of a new product introduction. Since the cubes are made out of cardboard do not use them in rooms that have high moisture content. The cubes works fine for light weight items and look better than storage boxes.
