About Koala Studios
1. Made in the USA
All Koala Studios are custom made by American Craftsmen in the USA. They are beautiful in their design and appearance and are built with the best materials and utmost care, providing a lifetime of enjoyment.
2. Rounded Beveled Edges
Koala Studios feature rounded corners and beveled edges, enhancing the Studio’s appearance and eliminating corners that snag fabric.
To achieve this, each board is precisely shaped with a computer-controlled diamond tip router, eliminating the need for saws that leave sharp edges.
To incorporate this advanced design features, the wood core must be made from a dense, high-grade 3/4-inch fiberboard with no imperfections.
3. Rich Elegant Veneer
Koala Studios are available in eight elegant finishes and will enhance any decor.
Each studio is finished in the same rich veneer and color inside and out and top to bottom, making it as beautiful opened as it is closed.
The veneer is applied through an advanced process called thermo-forming, which encapsulates the entire board and eliminates the need for edge banding.
The finish is a thick vinyl veneer that is hard-wearing, scratch-resistant, water-resistant, and easy to clean.
4. Remote controlled G3 Electric Glide Lift
Koala Studios’ innovative lift design enables the operator to effortlessly position their machine at any level with the push of a button. The user has a choice between a hand-held remote control and a built-in toggle switch.
The Koala G2 Lift has been designed to support all machines and provide a stable platform at every position. Two solid rails extend the full length of the lift platform, and the direct drive rack and pinion system moves your machine smoothly and quietly.
For the largest, heaviest machines, Koala’s optional G3 XL Lift provides extra space and support. The XL Lift is available on several studio models.
5. Large Capacity Full-Extension Drawers
Koala Studios feature full-extension drawers that glide open and close softly. The silent soft-closing hydraulic cushion makes the drawers impossible to slam.
The 5/8-inch framed drawer boxes combined with the steel drawer glides are weight tested to hold up to 120lbs. fully extended.
6. Multifunctional Bi-Fold Doors- Notion & Fabric Palettes
Koala Studios provide flexibility to minimize or maximize the Studio’s designated space by using or removing the Multifunctional Bi-Fold Doors.
If space is minimal, the doors can be folded flush to the sides of the Studio, or the doors can be easily removed.
If room permits, usable surface space or storage can be added to the left or right by attaching Notion & Fabric Palettes to the weight-bearing doors.
The Palettes can be positioned withing a 270-degree radius, providing usable surface areas where needed to support a variety of projects.
All studios are designed to pair together and if needed, the Bi-Fold Doors can be removed and stored.
7. Customizable Options in Width & Height
Koala Studios based models are built in widths of 27, 36, 53, and 70 inches. Each model’s footprint can be minimized or maximized depending on the Studio’s designated space.
Choosing the ergonomically-correct height of a Studio is a personal decision based on the individual’s desire to create while sitting, standing, or both. Koala Studios have options in heights of 29 1/4, 32 1/4, 35 1/4, and 38 1/4 inches.
At 35 1/4 and 38 1/4 inches, Koala Studios can be used comfortably while standing for cutting and placement of fabric. The taller height studios can also be used comfortably while sitting with the adjustable Foot-Control Rest and adjustable Koala Sew Comfort Chair.
8. Customizable Options in Shelving, Storage & Accessories
The surface and storage areas of your Studio can be maximized with an outback leaf extension, outback shelves and storage boxes. This is ideal when the Studio is positioned toward the center of the room, allowing access from every side.
A custom matching machine insert allows the Studio to be used by any brand or model of machine and enables the fabric to glide over the Studio surface.
9. Top Drawer Delivery
Koala Studios Top Drawer Delivery Service is a premium in-home delivery option that delivers the Studio into the owner’s home and room of their choice. The Studio arrives assembled and after the delivery team positions it, the owner only needs to attache their palettes, adjustable shelves, and accessories.
