    I did the exact same thing - mounted a solid-core door as a worksurface. I then put a 1/2" piece of particle board on top of it, and finished off with a sheet of 1/2" masonite. Works great!

    here is mine. It is not near as big as I would like. But it works for now. I might even rebuild it soon. Where the Lyman case trimmer is right now is where the new addition is going to go my Dillon Square Deal B. debating a strong mount or not.

    This is the brass prep area right now. It is an old rolling kitchen cabinet that we did not have room for.

    Some Brass storage. I have 9mm and 40 smith in hopes someday I will have pistols in those calibers.

    Originally had my bench set up in the basement. It was cold and somewhat damp.

    Finally finished remodelling my sons new bedroom around xmas. My wife said I could move my stuff upstairs so I wouldn't have to run the dehumidifers all the time (electric bill too high). So I built a new bench upstairs. I can now reload in the comfort of heating and air conditioning. :) Still getting it set up.

    You should never place a snake next to your reloading area. He's always whispering "just one more grain, come on, it can take it.":evil:
    I'm starting to think he don't like me.:scrutiny:

    Nice setup. You have some of the same books I have.
    It appears you are well organized, which I think is important in reloading.

    To me that does look extremely disorganized. :what: You probably know exactly where everything is though!

    Surprised

    Those are some awesome picts of reloading benches. I can't get over how many people appear to be vibrating cases in the house/basement/shop:eek:. I pretty much go through life not fretting about much, but man, when it comes to tumbling cases I only keep that in the garage and when its running it is out side on an extension cord. Am I the only one who does that:confused:?

    No, I tumble outside the garage with an extension cord too. I figure better safe than sorry, so trying to minimize the potential of lead exposure seems like a good idea. I do store my tumbler in my garage under my reloading bench though, so maybe many here do that as well.

    I build plastic models as a hobby and plan to make a nice vent hood for my hobby building area when we get moved into the new house. Seems to me that'd be a good place for the tumbler as well now that I think of it.

    Nope. All of my tumbling happens outside.
