I think I can say without fear of contradiction that this is the thread of covetousness! All the pictures I have seen have been great. I love to see so many people reloading...

final result

I posted pics of my bench I built earlier. Since then I made some modifications. The Madame says she bets I stop now because it's about to the ceiling..LOL. I added a 4' florescent shop light overhead and a 2' under the shelf that I added between the bench and top shelving. The powder measure and Lee Load All II are mounted on boards so I can put them up out of the way when not using them.

Thumbs up Looks Good

oldreloader, Ooh, I like it. I really like the lighted shelf. I'm thinking about doing that with mine with some under-the-cabinet lights like we have in the kitchen.

I was thinking of doing an epoxy floor, the benches sit on 6" stainles legs and if I epoxy the floor I hope it would be eisier to sweep and then If another pipe breaks I wont have to move the benches and pull out another wood floor. Has anybody ever tried the epoxy?
Palmer,
I've epoxied my garage floor and am happy with it it has a show room finish to it. No wear spots have showed but the potential is there when I'm moving my equipment around. Depending on your load room locality if attached to the house or basement I'd probably go 18in +/- porcelene tile. It would be much more room functional and better durability than epoxy covering if you ever decide to sell your house, etc.

Peace

lights

Seedtick I started with the bench,added the shelving on top, then decided I wanted the undershelf light. I had to add the shelf the light is under so I would have a place to mount it. LOL.After adding that and the 4' overhead shop light I don't have many dark spots..

just put this bench together in the last week.I'm loading 9mm about 600 rounds so far. Fired 300 so far no missfires or problems. I'm really enjoying loading hope to start loading some 30-30 rounds for winchester model 94 that my grandfather left me (1962-1963)by the serial #.The stainless steel table and cart were being thrown out on my bread route so they were freebies. hope the pics show up if not I will try photo bucket. Love the THR and this thread thanks for all the tips and photos.chris

I had my tumbler sitting on a flat bench too till i came and found it on the floor! I got some freez plugs for a chevy motor and glued them to the table top for the three rubber feet to set in. Stopped that. Nice set up by the way.

Very nice madd0c.

Very sturdy with good storage underneath. Nicely made. I like the bolts vs nails. Excellent.
