The bench has been welded throughout to make the unit especially sturdy and long-lasting. The base cabinet contains four drawers and another cabinet with an adjustable shelf and door. These compartments keep art projects and supplies of various sizes protected. The drawers for the bench include nylon bearings, so they open and close easily. The chrome handles on the modular bench are both attractive and easy to clean. The bench also includes a padlock hasp and a knockout plug that is designed for cylinder lock. The top surface of the bench is made of maple, which is both visually appealing and durable. The bench is a neutral gray, so it will coordinate with a number of art studio and classroom settings.
