The overall size of the base unit is 24 inches wide and 23 inches deep. This provides enough space to work on a variety of art projects, and the unit can also provide additional storage. Multiple base units can be added to the workbench to achieve the ideal size for artists who need to store a large number of supplies. The drawers of the unit are built with dovetail joint construction for easy opening and closing. The finish for the unit includes sealants and several coats of lacquer. This keeps the base cabinet from being scratched or damaged by art materials. The unit is made from solid maple framing and panels of birch plywood.
