Almost done. It is a part of a larger project of redoing the basement to make it more of a living room for my soon to be teenagers (12 and 10). This weekend I installed the cabinets, countertops, new gun safe and the doors. Still have some more work to do, but it is getting close.


The safe ought to keep the guns away from curious kids as well as any smash and grab robber. Darn thing weighs almost
400 lbs and I had to take the door and frame out just to get it in the closet. Not to mention the 500# of ammo on top of it. It isn't going anywhere.



Found these at Mcmaster.com I'll recess 6 of these in the taller bench to mount the press and powder measure and leave room for expansion.

Ha ha! There's a lot of different things on that Mcmaster catalog page -- I though for sure you were going to inlet MAGNETS into the bench to lock down your press! I was thinking you were either in for a surprise when you tried to re-size a large case, or on the other hand, if you did have enough pull to hold the press down right, you'd be in for a surprise when you went to remove the press! :D

I like the slots idea, though. Just seems likely to catch powder and spent primers, but having a shop vac handy is always a good idea anyway.

I know, but I just can't bolt through the new stained counter top for each press.....This seems like a good solution although I am open to other ideas.
