Futura Craft Station

Great Desk For You or Your Aspiring Artist!

Product Description

The perfect multi-functional contemporary table: Studio Designs' Futura Craft Station with its adjustable work desk is great for drafting, drawing, or crafting on its large tempered safety-glass work surface. The table top angle adjusts up to 35 degrees, useful even as a portable office desk. Features include a large pencil drawer, 4 removable side trays for supplies and 3 slide-out drawers for additional storage (mounts on either side of the table). A 24-pencil ledge slides up and locks into place if you'd rather keep pens, pencils, or brushes on the table top.

Review of Product

Okay, this desk by Studio Designs is pretty large so make sure you or your recipient has the space before you buy it. The dimensions of this desk are 43.25''W x 24''D x 31.5 - 45''H. That said, this desk is pretty awesome. The quality of this desk for the price is mind-boggling - sturdy, stylish and very functional. It is definitely designed and crafted with the artists' needs in mind. The 38" x 24" tempered-glass work-surface gives you plenty of space to create and design. The three plastic trays can be attached to the left or right side of the tempered glass. These trays and under-the-desk drawers gives you plenty of storage space to keep your various art supplies off your desktop but conveniently nearby.  The adjustable desktop can be adjusted up to 35 degrees. The adjustment is easy and stays securely in place (no wobble). You can also buy additional desk accessories to further customize your desk.

This desk does require complete assembly. The instructions are easy to follow but having two people to put the desk together increases the odds of a smooth assembly. The plastic trays are a great idea but they are a tad flimsy- would be infinitely better if there was a wood tray option. Overall, Amazon users were thrilled with this desk, giving it 4.6 out of 5 stars with over 750 reviews.

Review of Product

Two things drive a crafter crazy, first it is figuring out where to begin a project and the second is finding all the stuff they need to make their project happen. The first part is definitely harder to solve then the second part. The second part can be tackled in various ways, however, some ways are definitely better then others. One of the better solutions to storing all the small/medium things an avid crafter accumulates from various projects is this clear plastic storage container by Iris USA. Each mini-suitcase like container holds 16 individual, 4. 75"L x 6. 70"W x 1. 23"H, case inside. It is designed to fit 4" x 6" photographs, but it can definitely branch out and hold postcards, card stocks, beads, buttons, sewing bits, seeds, and so much more! The entire case is sturdy and durable. It is made in the USA. And, users can lay the entire case flat or upright for optimal storage. This also comes as a set, so users will receive 2 mini-suitcase containers and a total of 32 inner containers.

There were a few quality control issues reported by some users. The main problem reported was the boxes arrived damaged/broken and the second was some of the inner containers did not close properly. Overall, Amazon users loved the functionality of this product giving it 4.8 out of 5 stars with over 1,000 reviews.

Review on Product

At some point, every crafter from nearly every genre of crafting will need a storage solution for all their crafting odds and ends. Enter this grab-n-go storage system by Creative Options. This case is thoughtfully designed, functional and handy. First, this case features three separate pull out storage drawers that each have their own latching lid. Users no longer need to shuffle or stack and unstack their bins to get to what they need. Second, the top compartment is wide open for larger tools. Third, the front latching window is clear so users with multiple cases can quickly see or have a good idea of what each case holds. The best thing about this storage system is its sturdy and secure build. Each compartment is securely latched in so users can easily move their entire storage system without concern that their belongings will get jumbled up during transport.

The biggest issue that crafters have with this storage system is the semi-customizable compartment dividers. So, the drawers have non-movable dividers and additional little plastic inserts to further divide and "customize" the drawers. It would be better if users were able to fully customize each drawer. Is it a deal breaker? For some, but, for most, this is still a functional and awesome organizer. Overall, Amazon users give this a resounding thumbs up with 4.7 out of 5 stars and over 1,400 reviews.
