The Studio Designs Futura Craft Station with Shelf is the ultimate table for crafting, art making, or drafting. Constructed of heavy-gauge, powder-coated steel for durability, it features a large, tempered safety glass work surface that adjusts from flat to 35°. The height is also adjustable (in flat position) from 31½" to 45", making this table super versatile.
Other great features include four removable side trays for supplies, a slide-up pencil ledge, and a 9½" W × 24"D folding side shelf — perfect for holding tools or supporting a laptop. Simply tuck it safely out of the way when you're not using it. The shelf can be attached on either the right or left side of the table.

Snazzy for it's size and price

Comments about Studio Designs Futura Craft Station with Folding Shelf:
I really like the size of this desk and the multiple angles the top can be set at for different uses. It does take some patience to assemble but the pictures are fairly clear on the process.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this to use for the numerous hobbies I do from painting to jewelry making and am very pleased with it. I use it in a small room and with its open design it fit in perfectly where the old desk I had was too bulky for the small area. The top of the desk is great when using at an angle for painting/drawing or flat for working on jewelry projects. I love being able to look into the drawer and see exactly where the tool is that I need and the small storage spaces on the sides are quite handy to hold such things as erasers and brushes.
Got it for a good deal, not disappointed
from Twin Cities, MN
I got this desk while it was on about a 50% markdown, otherwise I probably would have not bothered because of the price. It was easy to assemble, it even came with the tools that you needed. It looks very nice and is sturdy to work on. I got it in black with the clear glass and a folding side table. I would have gotten the silver with blue glass but for some reason the website did not offer that with the folding side table, but the box my desk came in did. Oh well. Overall, I am pleased with this product
The desk itself is fine but mine arrived damaged.
By Pat the Illustrator

The packaging was totally unfit for transit. the table was only protected by a sheet of cardboard and it got dented in three areas. That said, the table itself was sturdy once assembled, and probably good for students and hobbyists looking for a short term solution or very casual use. Not a good long term professional table - the construction did not feel wholesome, nor does it really match any kind of decor, it stuck out in my all-white minimalist room like a sore thumb. Also an eyesore to be able to see the contents of the pencil drawer through the glass table top - there should be some kind of cover to the pencil drawer. The black side trays also looked really bad on an all white desk. As did the off putting bronze hinge that allows the table to tilt (why not just make it white too?) Overall a very unsatisfying experience for an artist looking for a long term quality solution that would be functional and beautiful as well.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Wish I had found this years ago!
By Jeanne the former English teacher

I have trouble sitting for long periods and decided a stand-up art table would be the perfect solution. And this table is. I have my brushes and some paints as well as a rinsing jar on the fold-out shelf and lots of fun things tucked in the side trays. It is so inviting when I come into my art room....immediately draws me to see what's going on over there.
Worth the purchase
from Indiantown, FL
I use it recreationally, but I believe a professional could use it as well. The construction is a little flimsy, but it is growing on me.
from Atlanta, GA
This product was purchased as an office desk and art desk and works as well as expected. Based on the other reviews, I made notes as I put it together to make it easier for others. Give yourself a couple of hours to put it together (it took me the length of the Galaxy Quest movie).* STEP 2 - Do not fully tighten any screws until after you complete STEP 3* STEP - Attach center screw/nut first, attach top part on left and right, then bottom left and right. Tighten everything.* STEP 4 - Tighten the screws closest to the center of the table FIRST* STEP 8 - Skip to STEP 9* STEP 9 - Go back and complete STEP 8 after attaching the plastic holdersI really like this desk, however the height is not adjustable out-of-the-box as the description implies, but you can buy extensions for the legs. You can also place the side ledge on the left or right side (or have two ledges).
Excellent Craft Station
from Scottsdale, Arizona
I won the Studio Designs Futura Craft Station in the twelve days of Christmas contest on facebook. I have been wanting one for a long time. It was easy to assemble because I asked a much smarter friend to help me assemble it. The directions were easy to follow and all parts were numbered and tools were included. The craft station adjust to plenty of angles or just lies flat. I love the pencil drawer and extra pencil and brush holders along the side. I will enjoy using this craft station. It is sleek looking and quite useful. I am very happy with the craft station.

It's a little wobbly if you're rough with it, but otherwise it works just fine. Side shelf is a little small but it fits papers and such, and the amount of art trays is very nice. Takes a while to put together, so you might want to set aside a couple hours. The desktop rotates up an down very smoothly and is very easy to operate, and the glass surface allows me to set up a makeshift-light box if needed.

Happy with the final product!

Beautiful workstation! Solid and well made. Would be 5 stars but this things was not easy to put together! Bring a lot of patience and you'll end up with a product you love.
