    In your theme editor click style.css. This should pull up a list of CSS code that you can edit. Throughout the code you’ll see various items listed and percentages listed to the right. You’ll want to change percentages to pixels.

    EG:

    #header {
    …somestuff…
    width:83%;
    …somestuff…
    }

    You’ll want to change it to the specific width you want:

    #header {
    …somestuff…
    width:800px;
    …somestuff…
    }

    Once you’ve done that, update the file and check out the changes it made. You’ll need to tweak it for a while until you get everything just right.
