A pair of stands were included in the box. The wood is... well... whatever. It's painted black. Finishing is what one would expect for this price; serviceable but nothing special. The screw holes are pre-drilled. Everything went together easily enough. The most difficult part was lining up the screws with the pre-drilled holes.
A number of purchasers mentioned that the wood cracked when they assembled; the solution for this is to wax the screw threads before assembling. I used a bit of candle paraffin and had no problems
Some folks had problems inserting the plastic backs. I put them on when assembling the stands.. haven't run the speaker cables through the stands yet as I haven't decided on final speaker placement. I'm using 12ga cable; it's stiff enough that I'll be able to thread it through the stand to the opening in the back just below the speaker platform where I can pull it out to attach to the speakers.
The stands are not weighted, so stability on carpeting can be an issue as the little plastic feet thingies don't really penetrate. The RTi4s are about as large and heavy a speaker as I'd want to have on these stands - and I don't have kids or pets to worry about knocking them over. I'll probably keep an eye out for something to add weight to the base.
The wood of the speaker platform is somewhat rough. I'm currently using a piece of foam to protect the finish on the speaker base and provide some sound isolation. Still want to get some of the blue tacky stuff to help anchor the speakers to the stands.
All in all... the BF-31B was a worthwhile purchase; it suits the need and the price was right.
When putting it together the parts didn't fit properly the carpet legs fall out of some of the holes and the stan legs do not close all the way in the front making the speaker wire visible.
I was so worried about splitting the wood that I actually started drilling out the holes to one size larger than they were on one of my stands. This proved completely unnecessary. The screws fit nice and tight in the factory, pre-drilled holes. The ones I drilled out had the screws going in much too easily. I assembled the other stand without drilling anything out and there was no splitting, or even signs of splitting (cracking noises). Keep in mind I did all the assembly with a hand screwdriver, which is all you should need considering the pre-drilled holes.
There also seems to be some confusion over what these are made of. The stands are "medium desnity fibercore" otherwise known as MDF to any car audio enthusiast. This is a staple of box building material and is used specifically for it's resistance to resonance. It's very dense, and quite substantial, much more so than cheap laminate particle board.
The finish on these is interesting. It's a satin black, with quite a bit of texture to it. I was somewhat worried that the rubber pads for the top plate wouldn't adhere well to it due to this texture, but they seem stick on nicely.
Finally, the plastic carpet spikes were no trouble to install. I simply inserted them into the base by hand, with minimal effort.
All in all, I'd say you can't beat these for the price. I am very happy with my purchase.
