The Fancy Workbench is an upgraded crafting table with the ability to create recipe books, and has storage space for eight books, in addition to functioning as an ordinary Crafting Table. It can be made from any of the six vanilla wood types, and takes on the color of the wood planks used to make it.

Putting items on the crafting grid (in the form of a valid crafting recipe), placing a blank book in the Active Book slot, and clicking the large arrow button will print an unsigned Recipe Book. Placing a Recipe Book (either signed or unsigned) in the Active Book slot will show a 'ghost image' of the book's recipe on the crafting grid. Clicking the arrow above the book slot will attempt to automatically load the crafting grid from your inventory. Alternatively, you can place a different recipe on the grid and 'overwrite' an unsigned Recipe Book. (Signed books are unaffected.)

All Six Varieties of Fancy Workbench

The Fancy Workbench also works as a Bookshelf, holding one book in each of the eight inventory slots at the bottom of the GUI. Books appear on the block model according to which slot they occupy in the inventory.

NOTE: The fancy workbench, like other Bibliocraft blocks, retains the color of whichever wood is used to craft it. Wood Types cannot be mixed in this recipe.
