My Jeweller's bench

I been wanting a place of my own to do my silversmithing and my wife is getting a bit sick of me taking over the kitchen table. Normally jewelers benches cost about £200-400 each!!!, that's a fortune for a table with a semi-circle cut out of it. I went down to one of my local DIY stores and bought some spruce batons and some 1x2''and some timberboard some drilling and screwing later and a couple of layers of diamond hard varnish later and I have my very own jewelers bench. Its cost me a afternoon and about £60 for all the materials. Its much cheaper and bigger than a bought one.

  1. Metal benches might be made of aluminum, wrought iron or steel. If you bought your metal bench specifically as a garden bench, most likely it is rust-resistant and will be okay in poor weather. If you are not sure, you should probably treat it as if it isn't, just in case. Remove any cushions and wash the bench frame with a mild soap and rinse with water. Dry off the bench completely with a soft cloth.Stainless Steel Benches
