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.
