    I like it! I would suggest that you paint, or prime the table top, makes clean up easier. I would also suggest that you build more shelves! You will need them in the not to distant future! Mine is about the size of yours, but I don't have no where near enough shelf space.

    well, dug thru the scrap wood int he shed and found some 7/16 osb from a dog kennel project, plus some wood planks from an old water bed frame.

    put together a lil more space for the bench.. still moving stuff around..

    I am hoping that your bench area is temperature/humidity controlled since I saw your powder cans sitting on a shelf.

    Otherwise, to dang neat and even more shelves will be needed.

    yep, that's the back 'clutter' room of the house.. the room I get to 'play' in.. so it is temp / humidity controlled. I also have each of my powder cans in a ziplock baggy for extra humidity control.

    the pic may be decieving.. but it looks alot less organized in person.

    I have another set of shelves about that big setting off to the left of the camera, that I have not had time to set on the other table and mount up.. well.. you can see SOME of the other shelf setting on the ground. I am also utilizing the space UNDER the table and the shelves under the bench.. and I have a scholl type desk with integral chair and desk and book rack to the sid eof that. that's where my relaod books like and I work up my loads. got it at a school sale for 5$ makes a great shooting rest too! I'm sure I'll need to build a 'bookshelf' sized set to go behind it as well. i keep shpopping yardsales and such for them. Idon't liek the lil particle board ones if I can help it.. I lucked up and at that same school sale got a real wood bookshelf that is in the wives library room, and I got a HD metal cart for my shop.

    Nice...good job. Looks like about 4' wide, as you add stuff on the 1-by
    shelving you made need a center support to avoid sagging....
    And I might keep an eye on the sawdust in the background.
    Everyone should have a reloading bench....don't ya think????

    i got screws thru the back of the osb into the shelves for support. though if I notice a sag I'll brace it.

    can't tell but she has a coat of clear utrethane on her.. so sawdust should be nill.

    good points though!

    I agree it looks good but more shelves is a must. im very limited on space right now but hopefully come wenter that will change. My dad and i have plans of building a room for reloading. Im thinking something 8ft by 12ft interior benches on 2 walls and one wall nothing but shelving .

    measure your usualy items to go on shelves and build them accordingly, with some large at top and bottom, to maximize your space.

    take pics too!
