Hello Fellow Metalsmithers,
The Workbench, Workshop and Tools, a reflection of ourselves, our creativity and our workmanship....the holy grail for every metalsmith.
This is the place where designs are dreamed up and come to fruition, work is done for hours on the finest detail and where we expand our skills, all the while doing what we love doing. There is no getting around it. This is where we spend most of our time.
That is why we must make our space work for us. Set it up to be efficient. Set it up comfortable. Make your tools work for you.
My second mobile workbench.....
the first was never photographed.
This is my mobile workbench that I have worked on every day for the last 7 years.
It is compact ( fits in a Van too)
My tools are all within arms length.
Much consideration is given to time and motion.
That make for efficient work.
I have a complete description of how I built my workbench here.
