Thanks, it is, 2x6's on 10" centers, 1 1/2 plywood top, 3" wood screws and lag bolted to the concrete block. Should be there a while.... I still want to add a laminate top to the work surface to help with cleaning.

Just moved, and finally got around to building an actual bench (in the old house I was just using some plywood mounted above a dresser in the bedroom).

The bench was just under $50 in materials and took less than 2 hours to make. Wish I'd done a "proper" setup earlier .

You got it secured to the wall? What a difference that makes. Be ready to add shelving to both sides too

Looks great!

.....well other then the manuals being stashed in the bottom back

Don't have it screwed to the wall yet. Likely will soon. I'd like to build a hutch style shelf setup to put on the back too. With the move and the to-do list as long as it is its just a matter of time and funds, but I had to get SOMETHING setup to keep shooting .

I'm also hoping to get a progressive when funds allow which is going to take a little more space. At that point I'll likely either build a bigger one or just do a 2nd one and stick it next to this one.

My God!! From what I've seen here, I don't know how any of you can reload with any assurance of safety. So organized!! So clean!! How can you work under those conditions?
I'll bet you even keep your powder lined up in ascending order, right? Same with your bullets. . . Probably within each caliber, they are also in ascending order. {Sigh}
Notice that you don't see no picture of MY reloading bench. [Hangs his head in shame.]

This is my modest workstation. The bench came from Lowe's and has worked nicely so far. The built-in electrical outlets on the side as well as the light above the work surface are both quite handy. The wood is bamboo which was initially concerning but to date it has held up fantastically. There is a storage compartment above the light that keeps all of my cleaning supplies. The three large drawers house my dies, scale, calipers, primers, and various other tools. Drawer liners were included with the bench which was nice. The large shelf underneath is where I keep my gun vise and boxes of brass to be reloaded. Powder, tumbler and tumbler media are stored on a separate set of shelves. I'm one who believes in organization so this is about as cluttered as my bench ever gets.

Here's my new Bald Eagle reloading bench. I had to move out of my man cave since our son moved back with us, so I needed a new bench. Got this on Amazon, but it's also available from Brownell's. Made of solid Birch hardwood, it's very sturdy and steady, and does a great job of holding my RCBS Pro 2000 steady while reloading. The finish looks really good as well.

My new bench

Construction was completed a few weeks ago and I just got the last box of parts from Dillon. Both presses used to live on portable stands; now I've got a bench. Supplies will be in a separate cabinet. Toolheads and reloading related tools in the left set of drawers, general tools in the right.

Only one press will be out at a time; there are threaded inserts in the bench for mounting. Yes, the lights were installed during construction specifically for the bench.

It absolutely wouldn't due for me to have a progressive press. I enjoy reloading so much that soon I'm going to have to move for all the damned rounds laying around here.
Great benches everybody.

I like the "bunker" style reloading room. Will guarantee you keep it organized.
And make you shoot a lot [thumbs] to keep room available

I'm filling a kinda shadow box made for different caliber displays. I'll try to find the name and link here in a few minutes. I've got about 50 calibers so far including 50 cal.

I typed in "Poster" and several poster companies came up. I typed in Firearms in the first one and scores of good stuff came up.

Weeeell, this one is over 40 years old, rock solid. I have moved it 3 times over the years, it's a BEAR to move. It's at its final resting place now. I wont be moving it anymore
