A simplistic use for the Smithing Table, without limiting Minecraft's existing gameplay
The Block Itself
Made using stone, not cobblestone. Once you can start obtaining stone from furnaces, which is somewhere around the Stone Age or Hardware Acquired advancements, you can create the table.
The Smithing Table features a GUI similar to the Stone Cutter. To the left you would put your ingot of choice (Iron or gold), and in the centre you would see all the options for tool heads.
Tool heads are a cheaper way to create your tools & weapons for the game. They only cost 1 ingot each, instead of requiring 2 or 3 like most recipes do.
Players are still able to craft metal tools & weapons normally, but it's just a lot less efficient than the smithing table's ability to craft their heads.
