The IC Workbench is a block added by Project Red. It is used to design new redstone circuits (see Usage). The designed circuit can be formed into an IC Chip with the IC Printer and then added to an IC Gate.
If the mod MineChem is installed, the IC Workbench can be decomposed with the Chemical Decomposer into 432 Iron (Fe) and possibly Cellulose based on its wood content.

To design a new redstone circuit, place an IC Blueprint on the top of the table. Right-clicking on the bench opens the GUI (displayed in picture 1).
To start a new board click on the Redraw button on the right. This opens a small window in which the size of the circuit board can be selected (picture 2). At the bottom of the window the name of the new circuit can be entered which is then displayed on the IC Blueprint, the IC Chip and the final IC Gate. Click "Start" and the empty board is displayed in the middle of the GUI (picture 3).
On this board the player can draw redstone wires, gates, and other functions, which are displayed at the bottom of the GUI. The yellow border on the board indicates the interface between the internal circuit and the cables, which can later be connected in the world at the gate.
If the circuit is finished, leave the GUI and shift right-click on the bench to obtain the created blueprint.
