    Nice Idea with the hinges. I just pop the roller wheel out of the track and swing it out of the way when I am working at the ends. Great creativity.

    Looks good. Doesn't matter. The trick is working with what you have so that you can shoot often. I started with a single stage shotgun press clamped to my mothers coffee table. Did I get into some trouble with all the bb's in the carpet and scratches on the table.

    You guys make me feel like a slob! But I do know where everything is. We have a major kitchen project planned soon and I hope to have enough money left over to redo the loading room. Right now I have a really stout bench with homemade shelves and a free standing book case. Thinking about some kitchen style cabinets and a formica top. We'll see!

    If I may ask, is that your Father's Flag?

    Yes it is. Even though he wasn't the "best" father, he's the only father I'll ever have. I put it there to remember him & "the good times"!!!!

    Well, I'm stoked.
    We are officially moving out of our apartment into a house that has a lot of shelving and a sturdy bench already built, in the garage.
    So, I'll have a dedicated reloading area once again.
    We're moving in over spring break.

    Pics to come in the coming weeks.

    Congratulations. Nothing like starting from scratch in a new home to get things just right.

    My last reloading room was #3859 of this thread. Put a lot of work into it because it was our “last” house. The house we were retiring in. Then my wife explained to me we were once again building a retirement house. Trying to get settled in once again. Hopefully, I’ll get cabinets built for rest of room in the next couple of weeks. Still have to go pick up wood to make them. Plan to make them out of red oak. Will replace that bench top with red oak after I get kiln built to dry it. Counter tops in this room will be red oak, too. 6700DD57-32D5-4D55-9816-B9A4591D882D.jpeg BFAC6CB9-706B-4BFF-A7A9-9B3540DEE786.jpeg C96F776A-0674-4958-8F9C-61A65E147887.jpeg

    Well, here is the new digs.
    It's not perfect, but it's a helluva lot better than not having a bench. I was without one for 4 years at the apartment, so I'm pretty excited.
    I'm not sure everything will stay in this exact location, I'll have to play with it a bit with the new space and see what I like.

    Congratulations Paul!! Nice setup. Looks like I may be moving to Nebraska in May so I’ll have that to do myself.
