The main usage of Smithing Tables is to upgrade diamond gear to netherite. New netherite gear will retain enchantments, work penalty and durability points lost from the diamond gear. Upgrading your gear to netherite does not remove incompatible enchantments,  like Protection enchantments.

To use your smithing table in Minecraft, simply place it on the ground and then right-click it. A small tab will open up. Inside this tab you can upgrade your diamond tools, diamond weapons, and diamond armor with netherite ingots.

Answer: In order to make Netherite Armor, weapons or tools, you must have Diamond armor, and then turn it into Netherite armor, which you can do with a Smithin Table. You can craft a Smithing Table by placing 2 iron ingots over a 2×2 square of any wooden planks, though Smithing Tables also spawn in villages. Get a Smithing Table, then get a single Netherite Ingot. Place your Diamond Armor or Tool on the left square, and the Netherite ingot on the next. This will craft Netherite Armor, which is stronger, and more durable than Diamond Armor and Diamond Tools.
