Great looking benches. You need to post pics when you get your equipment mounted.

Craig, what are the walls made of?

You'll be very glad for the extra work In Putting up outlets. It's so nice to just reach from any spot and have power.

Thanks guys! I probably over-did it a little bit with the electrical and have the bill to show for it but I'm sure I'll be glad I did in the end.
I've never heard anyone say, "Damn, this place has too many electrical outlets." I've heard the opposite complaints a lot.

The only problem I see with anything is that the table is too pretty to drill holes into.

My garage gets way too hot in the summer to reload so I had to move some of the stuff inside the house.

It's Masonite made to look like wood paneling. We put the same stuff in the garage. I started to do a rough-sawn plank for a little more rustic look but decided not to. The Masonite looks good painted and the semi-gloss paint allows me to wipe the walls down when they get dusty.

I know, I'm dreading it. We put a good cleaning on it last week. I've setup some racks and have started moving in. Hoping to start setting up the reloading bench in the next week or two. Still have to do cabinets or shelves over the leatherworking bench.

My Bench

You guys have some awesome setups! Mine is a work in progress! Just mounted new Hornady LNL AP and loving the upgrade from the Lee Turret. Right fit because I am one that still needs to fit both cars in my two-car garage...but it works! Started loading last year to help keep ammo costs down but no one informed me that this is a hobby in and of itslef! Addictive...haha!

My Reloading Bench

http://www.thehighroad.org/attachmen...1&d=1400885090

Picked up shelving unit in back for $25 (it was 8' long), top is made from salvaged pallet wood, sanded smooth then clear-coated, cost $0.00, used various bolts, screws & polyurethane I have around my woodworking shop, cost $0.00, purchased 1/2 sheet plywood cost $16.97, time to build: 3 weeks in spare time before retirement converted old coal room in our 100 year old house to reloading room, 4'9'' wide x 8'8" long, big enough for me
By the way, the chair has been a "project" sitting around (pun intended ) for 20 years, finally got around to it

That's plenty of room JellDog. Im squashed up into the corner of mine and my wife's bedroom. My wife tells me Im off to the garage if she steps on one more spent primer

(I prime off press on an LCT so there's a gap where the primer would fit onto the ram..for some reason every now and then a primer shoots out of that gap when depriming..I try to keep my thumb over the hole but when you size 1000 cases like I did this weeknd, you're bound to miss a few)

Needless to say Ive been cleaning up REALLY WELL after each session now. Who does she think she is anyway?

Why don't you just move to the garage? I load in the garage and love it. No wife, no kids, just the music and me!

If your components sat for several years, year after year in severe fluctuating temperatures and humidity swings, maybe there would be an issue. My shop has heat and AC but it is separate from the house and it is not heated and cooled unless in use.

In the summer here it gets 100+ and in the winter we sometimes see single digits. Sometimes two or three weeks go by in these extreme temps without heat/ac being turned on. I have not had issues with powder or primers, but we don't let it set too long. I usually don't buy in bulk, so the one pound cans are gone, usually within a year.

Like I said, if you let it set for 15 years it may effect it I don't know.

Interesting..though I fear our summers here are a notch "stickier" than youz guys. Probably negligible though.

It sounds as if my FIL and I will be tackling a reloading building in the backyard, and sticking a window unit in it. Arkansas Paul, do you flip the AC on during hot weather even if you're not in the building?

And I suspect your summers are about the same as mine, if not worse over there in Miss..
