Assembly takes about 2-3 hours including the time it takes to watch the DVD provided which gives step by step instructions and demonstration of the assembly process. You will also receive drawings of each piece defining which part of the cabinet it belongs to and where the hardware goes. All the holes are pre-drilled, ready for hardware installation, and all the hardware you will need is provided.
The cabinet is built on a cam system, and it only takes a ¼ turn of the cam over the cam pin to lock the pieces together. You will need a screw driver, hammer or rubber mallet, and most preferably an assistant.
Not really. We developed the KeepsSake Creation Station to do much more that an ordinary computer cabinet. Here are some of the defining differences:
Door Storage for supplies The KeepsSake Creation Station gives you the ability to store supplies right at your fingertips. To accomplish this our doors are solid hardwood, we use 3 heavy duty hinges on each to carry the weight of the supplies, and we have a slatwall system that we call “caboodle walls”. This system is totally customizable; the supplies you use most can be closest to you.
12”x12” paper storage You won’t find that in a standard computer cabinet.
The carts hold 12”x12” paper and Cropper Hopper oversized hanging file folders, too. The cabinet shelves and the rolling carts (either variety) can store 12x12 vertical paper holders also.
Working surface area The KeepsSake Creation Station has 2-3 times more work surface than a standard computer cabinet. The roll-out desk, the main desk area, and the top surface of the standard rolling cart add up to 12 ½ square feet of working surface for you to spread out all your supplies.
Materials and construction Unlike the pressboard material used in most computer cabinets, the KeepsSake Creation Station is built to last with the use of solid hardwood and hardwood veneers.
Roll-away desk and carts When you are done working, everything just rolls right back inside. You can leave your work out on the roll-away desk, eliminating the need to clean up, and come back to your projects right where you left off.
Lighted work surface The KeepsSake Creation Station has a well lighted work surface from the 50 watt Halogen overhead lamp. With the roll-out desk extended, you sit out into your room where overhead and natural lighting can also help further illuminate your projects (and you won’t feel claustrophobic).
