    Mine are only 12" and they are plenty wide enough even for my butt! More important to me is how the benches are designed to slide almost all the way under the table. They are knee knockers.

    I've seen this with bankruptcies, business break-ups and real break-ups aka divorces. It does not look like a work-shop. It is $.50 on the dollar. There is probably a back story and some pain.
