I am new to reloading and this seems like a great site. I just built this today. The bench is clean I just need to clean up everything around it.

Good start, looks good. You will be adding some storage, eventually!

And did you see the size of that case trimmer to the right of the bench? and he won't have to empty that primer catcher under the bench for a couple of centuries.

Xring,
I like the room as well, but for the sake of saving a fellow shooter and a very nice and well stocked Cave, Please do not smoke in your reloading room
I too saw the ashtray. With all that powder around, at least smoke a cigar if you're going to smoke!

Also, Roccobro, I'd love to see anyone else's design for a "hideaway" feature for their bench. I've tried a couple designs but none would cover my Dillon 1050 without it looking like a clean room box. I may just wall off part of the basement to make it look like a closet. But my friends my accuse me of having a "panic room".

My wife was nice enough to let me use 7-8 sq/ft of the bedroom. It's Workmate with laminated oak top (the factory top had way too much flex), Lee 4 hole turret, a couple of Uniflows, Lyman scale, Wilson and some Lee trimmers, a few thousand primers, about 12 lbs of powder, thousands of bullets and cases, misc small tools, lots of empty ammo boxes,and a folding stool that fits behind it all. Really everything needed with the exception of a tumbler and media separator which I keep in the closet.

Heres mine. Took me a while to build it and it is still under construction. I did my best to use all the available space, lotsa hinged false bases for brass and loaded ammo storage. All drawers are load rated at 200 lbs. Still need to finish the top surface. I intend to do hardwood shorts (bartop) but want to make sure I like where the press locations are before I go drilling holes in the oak. Additionally, I intend to make drawer pulls out of some antler bases I have sitting around.

It is solid and works for me.

~z, are those walnut drawer fronts?
Very nice, like the double plywood top. Is the top to be painted or covered with hardboard while the oak and walnut get a clear finish?

Judge, Yea, walnut, got a good deal at an estate sale. The top is gonna get oak shorts, like a hardwood floor except shorter pieces. Once I'm done all will get a clearcoat then a wax finish...thats the plan anyway, things can always change.

Oops, guess I overlooked that. I like two kinds of beer, the very cheap (Natty, Lonestar, Pearl, PBR...) and the very good (Shiner, DogFish, most IPAs, and a wide variety I cant pronounce and cost more by the pint than Natty does by the case). I guess you caught me hydrating. Besides I'm just a few years out of college, old habbits die hard.

But what about the rest of the gunroom?

I still see no real quality, If I posted my reload bench all my home brew gear will be in the back ground.....then what?
