    Here's mine. I have a 10' X16' shed built with power, heat, air, internet, etc. for my gun safes and for reloading, nice place to get away to.

    Here's mine. I beefed up a computer table to use my Dillon SDB. I loaded 40 s&w and 45 acp. Then I added a Lee single stage to load 44 mag. Just lately I bought the 3 stage Lee to load 7.62x39, .300 BLK and 5.56 along with 30-06 and .308. I can barely move around the spare room so I guess I will have to build a better bench in a bigger area.

    New Reloading Bench

    I moved from a double sheet of 24" x 37" ply that fit over the end of the kitchen table, to the first dedicated reloading setup I've had n several years. This one's in a 5' wide by 4' deep alcove, opposite the desk in my home office. I can go from my desk/computer to reloading bench by rotating my desk chair 180 deg, moving it 3 feet, and doing my thing! The bench is a double thick 3/4" maple veneer plywood sheet, glued/screwed for rigidity. It rests on 5/4 x 2" pine rails, attached to wall studs with 4" lag bolts. It's fastened down with 2-1/2" screws thru 5/4 sqare blocks, 8" long, spaced every 8" along the rear edge.

    This is my current setup. Wife and I talked...I get to get rid of the unused fridge beside the desk and expand my reloading area. I have already begun drawing up my plans. :)

    Computer Desk $20 - check :)
    IMG_20130624_034535_447_zpsd3159944.jpg

    Where I keep extra equipment(trimmer, puller, hand primer, dies), my hunting rounds and some 9MM and .223 plinking rounds
    IMG_20130624_034519_107_zps75d09665.jpg

    Cleaning equipment and trading brass
    IMG_20130624_034510_942_zpsf3cfc725.jpg

    Tumbler, sorter, Plastic storage bins with assorted tools...oh and over 2,000 9MM LRN bullets
    IMG_20130624_034504_455_zps122fd8b7.jpg

    Some factory ammo and my brass station. I trim all rifle brass so I have separate bins for cleaned brass, trimmed brass & ready to load brass in the .223 and .308 calibers.
    IMG_20130624_034451_719_zps48de13bb.jpg

    That's it....my new bench is going to have a permanent placement for all my equipment including my new turret press coming in. Going to have a decap/sizing station, trimming, brass area and then the final loading area. :)

    I am sure if I taught mine how to reload and trust the work...I would probably not be able to reload a single round. She loves firearms as much as me.

    Finally got the fridge taken to the scrap yard(got a flat tire in the process grr) but I got $18 bucks for the fridge. I priced the wood to build my bench and it was nearly $100 bucks!

    So went to a thrift store and bought another desk for $15. I am going to install some wood to reinforce it and make it rock sturdy at the press. And somehow even though 8 months from when I purchased the other desk they were the exact same. So much decent sized work area cost me $35 today with some good storage space. Those home depot tubs work out great for brass and finished rounds.

    Here she is:

    Hey, everyone!! I have been following this particular thread for a while now and finally finished off my reloading room and built my new bench and shelves! Now that I have my "sponsors" all plastered all over.....I am ready to show off my bench! Let me know what you think, as this is a product of many months of thinking, talking to others, and many of you had a part in this even though you didn't know it.

    Okay, what's going on? I can't attach any photos. I am very confused. Can someone please help me out on this!????? It wants links. I don't have any links. So I am going to put these in my dropbox and attach links. I hope they work. But someone please tell me what is going on.

    Nice orderly bench but you might consider shoring up the legs on that bench to make it a bit sturdier.

    My little piece of the world

    Here is my reloading center. It is outside in my shop so i have to keep powder, primer inside and carry it in the large black 50 Cal ammo can. One pic of 9mm being loaded. Hope to get it closed in and climatized one day or convince the wife to give me the extra bedroom.:eek:

    It may be an issue with the upper case .JPG at the end. See if you can change it to a lower case .jpg

    Wow, some of you guys have ALOT of room compared to my small corner of the house,,thats OK I make efficent use of this 41" wide piece of laminate countertop,with a ton of shelving along the wall from floor to ceiling,
    Of course my cleaner must run out in the garage as this corner is on main floor of house,and bedrooms all around it,, It gets the job done though
    The most important thing is that you have room to move,and GOOD LIGHTING

    Someday when kids are older and moved out, I will take-over an enitre room,and build a larger bench...
