A workbench is a piece of furniture designed to help someone working at their craft. The craft may be woodworking, jewelry, metal work, electronics, auto repair, gardening or other hobbies or tasks. The term "bench" is a bit of a misnomer because a workbench is usually more of a table or desk. It may have a seat that comes with it, but many workbenches are designed to be used while standing. Common features of a workbench include something that will hold the work product in place so the crafter will have both hands free to work on it and storage or places to put the tools and materials that will be frequently used while working there. The storage may include bins, shelving or hooks attached to the bench.
