    Here is my little bench, not too much room but its extremely stable and works for me. I can also wheel it out of the room when I have guests comming. Its got casters on one side and fits through doors.

    My Bench

    This thread has inspired me to finally build a decent bench. Thanks for all the great ideas! I used plans for a basic workbench from a link in an earlier thread. (sorry for the crappy cell phone pic)

    +1 on the sticky vote! I'm sure I'm not the only one who improved their man-space after reading this thread!

    I guess I better put an updated photo here since it's "going sticky"

    I've added a couple more goodies, but this is pretty current. I think the pegboard (white) really helps me as much as anything...good way to store stuff and great light reflection.

    I recently got a single stage set up and have started doing some bottle-neck reloading. I like it all.

    This is a great thread!

    I'd have to guess the complete run of handloader magazine.

    hotwheelz,
    Mr. decon got it right...I was fortunate to "steal" a complete set of Handloader Magazine (the last issue in the purchased collection even matched up with the first issue I had purchased...destiny...and only $50.00 too!!)

    Seeing this stuff on-line is great. I don't reload on a major scale but enjoy reloading as much as anyone.

    THe Dove,
    Welcome! It's never a matter of quantity or size of the bench...it's about participating in the hobby and enjoying it while you participate.

    I've been reloading for a while in an extra bedroom but decided to move out to my shop. I built a 10x12 room in the back corner and finished it up today (just in time to start stockpiling for cowboy season!).

    This room will serve a lot of rolls including leather/Kydex work, amature gun smithing etc...

    This thread has been an excellent resource!

    Fortunately I live a few minutes from the Kraftmade Factory distribution center where they have a surplus sale every Saturday. Scored all of the cabinets you see (which are all solid oak & Maple with plywood sides and solid 3/4" Maple self closing drawers) for $225. I love that place..

    Incidentally, this is what I am most excited about. I can finally set my tumbler to run and get away from it. When I get back out to the shop in a few days my brass will be done.

    Shop mascot's. I got these is about 1994 and they have been with me in every shop I've had since. This is about the only picture of Hillary I can tolerate looking at :)

    I just finished building this bench over the past weekend. I've got the rest of the gadgets are now hung on the peg board. I didn't need a huge bench because I have a older style steel office cabinet that I keep the components and finished loads in. I like to keep my bench neat without alot of clutter. This will also second as a hand gun and long gun cleaning bench. It's easy to remove the scale and presses. This won't let me add a pic, so here's a link

    I just got my "official" bench set up over Xmas. :) Much better than stealing table space..

    Is that one of the benches from "SAMSCLUB" ?? I have been looking at them for the last few months and thinking they look solid and I could find a use or 2 for one. NIce set up you got there.
