The box is a traditional design with a sliding palette and storage area for materials. Because of the slot method, it cannot hold any panel wider than about 9″, so the box is very limited in scope.

The interior of the box has a hinged canvas panel top, a slide out wooden palette and 3 storage compartments. Dimensions: 7 1/4″ x 9 1/4″ x 2 1/2″.
