1. Studio Location – Keep your studio away from the kitchen or anywhere there’s food.

2. Selecting a Table – Needs to be able to withstand hammer blows and harmful spills.

3. Table Height – You’ll ideally want a table that is about 40″ tall, which is about chest height when sitting.

5. Table Edge – Select an edge that vices can attach to easily.
