The Arcane Worktable is a block added by Thaumcraft 3. It functions in the same way as a crafting table, but allows the use of a wand so that Thaumcraft items that require Vis can be crafted. The wand has to be advanced enough to hold enough Vis to craft the item. The Arcane Worktable can also be used to craft any other item without a wand in the same way as a normal crafting table. Items and wands placed in the Arcane Worktable will stay there when you exit the GUI, unlike a vanilla crafting table.
Thaumonomicon (Thaumcraft 3) Entry
To create an Arcane Worktable, simply right-click with a Casting Wand on a Table you have placed in the world. The Arcane Worktable serves the same purpose as a normal crafting table, with a few key exceptions.
Apart from normal crafting recipes, it can also craft some of the items unique to Thaumaturgy. To do that you need to place a Casting Wand like the Wand of the Apprentice in the slot in the bottom right. This will allow you to craft items that require vis by drawing the energy directly from the wand.
Wands do recharge while in the worktable, but at a much slower rate than they would in your inventory.
