The second workbench can be found once Amicia and Lucas get to the warehouse with the ballista. This workbench is actually one of the secret chest locations. But, you can grab the knife nearby and open it to access the workbench.
The next workbench can be found early on in the chapter when Amicia and Lucas need to push the cart with the brazier on it. Before heading to the right towards the docks, turn it to the left to find a ladder, leading up to a locked chest and the workbench.
After working with the soldier get across the rafters with the rats beneath you, head through the door to progress and you can find another workbench in here.
The final workbench in this chapter can be found after you pass all the enemies in the forest and cross the drawbridge. Once going through the door, you can find the workbench in front of you.
While trying to make your way back to the boat with your mother, Lucas, and Hugo on it, you will be able to go all the way along the wooden raised platform, towards where the large bridge is. Just at the end of the platform, you can find the workbench.
After sneaking out of the village and falling down the cliff, you will be able to head down a slope and see a small supply spot in the right corner with a cart. Head over to it to find the workbench.
After making your way across the large group of rats using Tar and Hugo’s rat control powers, walk past all the enemies you kill and use the door in the corner to progress. In here, you can find a workbench.
After you get out of the initial caves with Arnaud, you will jump down to the beach. Just ahead of you there will be a workbench in a shipwreck.
Once you get past the next set of enemies who are patrolling around several destroyed boats, you will reach a small gap you can squeeze through. Before you do that, look to your right to find a gap you can crouch under. Behind here, you can find the next workbench, which is a secret chest.
Much later in the chapter, after you save Sophia’s life, you can find a workbench in the room where the cutscene ends.
While exploring the village, you will find a small side pathway on the left that leads down to a well and a game where you can throw pots to grab one of the souvenir locations. Also down here, you can find a workbench.

At the bottom of the large open area on the cliff, you will find a large shed. Climb up the ladder and shoot the chain off the door using the window. This will allow you to head inside through the main door and find the workbench.
Now, make your way to the market stalls near the large tower that leads down to the village. Next to one of the stalls, you can find a workbench.

The next workbench is quite a way past the last one. After you head up to the mural you see, you will come across a large number of enemies. Once going through the door and locking it, you can find a workbench just to your left.
Quite a bit further on, you will pass another large group of enemies, and climb up a set of stairs to reach the door, which is in a circular tower. Just as you go through the door, you can find the workbench at the bottom of the stairs.
On your way to the fort, you will come across a stony path after heading into the building and bringing down the door with your crossbow. On your right, as you head down this path, you can find a workbench.

After you sneak onto the cart and it crashes amongst a sea of rats, Sophia will join you. You will be able to use her prism to create an area of light around you. Just past the first fire, you can see a doorway with a balcony. Up here is the Secret Chest with the workbench. But, first walk onward just past the rubble and you will see a pile of sticks. Use Sophia’s Prism to get there, grab a stick, and then head back to the previous fire. Light the stick on fire with this bonfire opposite the doorways and then walk through the doorway to get to safety and reach the chest up on the balcony.

This is on the edge of the room, in a long corridor. Just by the chest on your right, you will see the Secret Chest behind a rats nest. Well, just next to you is a chain you can break with your sling. After breaking it, squeeze through and then look to your left to find another chain you can squeeze through and the chest you just saw with a workbench.
