Thanks Maverick223 - I like how it came out.

The wood stain helps iron out the difference in grain between finish-grade pine I used for the shelving, construction-grade ply for the bench, and the treated 4x4 legs.

I've noticed one drawback - the bench top is so dark it hides errant powder grains and makes cleanup a bit harder. I'm looking now for a white top I can glue to the surface that will aid in cleaning.

Ask and ye shalt receive...a melamine surface (either in sheet, shelf, or even "shelf liner" form should work) is cheap, light colored, and allows you to use dry erase markers to jot down notes, loading info., et cetera.

Here's my Man-Ville. used to be a 1 bedroom guesthouse on the 2nd floor of my garage. tricked my wife into letting me use it as my workshop, and she hasn't gotten it back since. the gunsmithing table is on other side of room, it has a wood stove for the winter, a full bath, and small kitchen area (no stove or oven).

it's definitely a work in progress.

I'm on top of a hill, so I can see about 25 - 30 miles out that window to the south. It does beat the basement setup I had at my last place.

Mounted my RCBS on my table this afternoon since the portable table wasn't going to be strong enough to load 338LM. My area looks really messy compared to other pictures...and this is even after I cleaned up today.

Are you talking to me? You can buy the table along with the shelf from Sam's Club.

Here are some pictures of my reloading setup and my RCBS Pro 2000 press. The built-in cabinets hold powder, cases, and primers. The bench is heavily reinforced to manage the heavy Pro 2000 without the need for legs on the bench.

Ya'll inspired me to move off the workmate and build something a little more luxurious - It was somewhat of a hassle having to set it up if it was broken down or having to put it all onto shelves if I needed to use the workmate - Lots of great benches posted here with innovative ideas -
I built this in the last few days - I still have a few things I want to do to the area - IE a small peg board and clean up the last of the sawdust -

My Little Red Reloading Bench

This is my version of a popular reloading bench available on the internet. Didn't cost much and was easy to build.

my loading bench

I just got done loading some 454's, can't wait to get to the range, if it would ever quit raining here in Ohio.

My latest addition and my reloading bench... thoroughly messy.

Pretty obvious whats what, just added the Hornady LNL AP today to complement my LEE Anniversary breach lock kit. LNL AP is set up for .45 ACP, the LEE for .308 WIN. Just loaded my first 100 rounds of .45 ACP on the LNL and lovin it! So much quicker than doing it on the single stage. Currently I fire about 450 rounds of .45 ACP per outing and that takes FOREVER on a single stage, so the upgrade is well worth it.

I have a Lyman 1200 sitting out in the garage as my only other bit of reloading gear

Buddy Christ is necessary for every reloading operation, keeps me sane!

Now you have to add the case feeder and bullet feeder and it becomes you own ammo factory... You do not even touch a bullet or case other than to empty your finished tray!
