..I built this workshop in 1975, and relocated It in 1997. It is designed so when seated, everything needed Is within easy reach. The working bench top is laminated solid timbers with addition iron supports underneath. The worktop has a cutting mat, which is recessed to be flush with the surface,
and a piece of brass angle along the front edge. My stamping surface is a piece of lead/zinc which sits to my left...it easily slides over when needed. The lighting here is perfect, with a window on my left and one in front. The two adjustable lamps can be moved into any position for night work...
they have color-balanced fluorescent tubes.
