Jo Haemer’s bench combines the best of two worlds

By Jo Haemer

Editor’s Note: When jewelry maker Jo Haemer is asked about the most important tool she owns, she often says it’s her workbench, and it’s not hard to see why. She and her husband Timothy Green have three custom made workbenches in the home studio they share in Portland, Oregon. Haemer offers a peek at her bench, explaining its construction and how she puts its thoughtful layout to good use.
