Consideration of door width and wall depth is essential to ensure the perfect fitting of the designed furniture into the available space. Millwork shop drawings convey minute details with precise spatial and outfield dimensions.

Dimensionally precise furniture drawings guarantee seamless installation and assembly of furniture pieces onsite, which saves countless work-hours.
