Under construction... starting with 1x4's screwed into the studs to provide support for the bench and shelves above it.
Shelf area under the benchtop...
And a more recent action photo. The closet is so small it's hard to get a wide enough shot to include the whole bench, but you get the idea.

First thing to catch my eye? Bin full of en bloc clips.

Equipment is mounted to a 3/4' piece of white oak, bolted to the Workmate. Another piece of pine is behind it to make a bit larger working surface.
Space is a premium in my small workshop so I built this to fit about 9 years ago. Powder, bullets, dies, and primers etc., live on a bookshelf on the other side of the door.
setup has served well for several thousand rounds.
I do need to do a little cleaning though, lol.
We're both Ford early mustang guys... Camshaft cores are the 'primers' of the engine world right now. Lol. With Covid, all the cam core companies shut down for 6-8 months straight!
Nature... is that lower right guidon 124 Signal?

Settled on this about 25 years ago. I like it because it's small enough that it forces good house keeping. But large enough that some light,and I mean light,gunsmith chores can be done(larger work HAS to go to shop). There's a 3rd orange crusher now.
The "bench" was a 24" tall end table with a drawer and a cabinet underneath. Approximately 14"x14" with a single stage press bolted to the side. He'd bolted an L bracket on a bottom leg, which I assume was to hold it down when sizing brass.
Your also fixing to blow a fuse. Lol
This here’s pretty basic, but it works fine. It’s my first stab at “woodworking.”
It’s .38 Special day, because I’m from Jacksonville…
…and Molly Hatchet Day ain’t till tomorrow!
If anyone ever wondered what the “LEE” on the press stands for, well, you see, it’s a Jacksonville thing, and you kind of have to be from around here.
But here you go:
Now THATS a like right there
You ARE Da Man!!!!!!!
My friend Stan Taylor at Douglas Barrels keeps it real small.
