Espresso Bed Risers
Serves its purpose, but could be much improved
The concept of having stackable risers is great, though implementation was not as smooth. There is a long wooden peg which is used to connect the risers together when stacking so as to keep them together and stable. However, the holes that were bore into the risers were not all straight, leading to risers being offset with each other. A better design point might be to use two pegs to ensure the risers stay aligned when stacking. The bottoms of the risers are also not as smooth as I'd have hoped, and have the potential to scratch a floor that is prone to scratches (as mine is).

Does the job!
These 4 little blocks of wood were perfect for raising my queen size bed 3 more inches off the floor. My only recommendation would be to sell them individually because my bed needed 7 blocks and they are only sold in sets of 4. I had to get another set and now I have one left over. I guess I can use it as a back up!?!

Glad I purchased
After trying a few different styles of bed risers, and finding them all failing for various reasons (plastic was too brittle, made the bed feel too rickety, etc) , I was hesitant to purchase another set. Should have tried these before all the others! They are sturdy, and I've had no issues with them. They are substantial, so look at the measurements to get a true idea of the size. But the added storage room is well worth it.

Stacked two high, these add 7 more inches to my bed height. I put the extra-large of these http://www.containerstore.com/shop?productId=10025131&N=&Ns=p_sort_default%7C0&Ntt=maize
underneath my bed. They hold my yarn and fabric in my teeny tiny bedroom. There's nothing bad to say about these. The only flaw isn't with the product but my furniture. My bed is on wheels, so they rock a bit, but I am going to get new feet for it from a mattress store. I am sure that will help the motion.
