I finally purchased a reloader. I got the RCBS Rock Chucker Supreme.
I am going to build a reloading bench within the next week or so. Could ya'll post some pictures of your benches and some specs as in length, height, width, and depth. Thanks for the help.

My bench happened to begin life as something else, but it works good for it's latest purpose. The specs are- 32" high, 45" wide, 26" deep


Mine is screwed to the wall and the angle braces keep the legs out of the way. Works good for me.

It made a good addition to my "man room".

I started out with a wooden box. I used the kitchen table to hold my powder scale and other stuff and bolted the press to the wood box. When I was done, all my supplys went into the box. Later I used an old desk. That worked pretty well. The drawers held most of my expanding hobby but later still I made a bench just for reloading.

A few years ago I built a shop in my basement to work on Motorcycles. While I was at it, I made a place for my reloading gear. Now days I do less on motorcycles and more with guns so it's mostly a gun shop now. The bench is 14 feet long and I used a counter top from the local Home Depot.

The Computer on the bench is not hooked to the internet but just has my reloading files and Ballistic programs on it. The Mini Lathe is handy for triming brass and making small parts for guns. The bench is tall enough to stand at but I do have some bar stools so I can sit if I feel like it.

It looks like what you have works well. Good and solid. It appears you have more room to work with than I did. Had to keep mine small.

Lots of good stuff here... pretty much anything works as long as it's solid and doesn't move around on you. It seems the best height for sitting at a bench is probably no higher than 36".

My bench looks like SPStac's bench.

Anyone wanting to build a bench.
Keep your eyes open for solid wooden doors being removed from a building or house.
They make excellent benchs. Good depth and soild front to rear.

OK, I know this is a REALLY old post, but since I have a pic, I will I throw my two cents in for any newer inquiries.

My office is actually the extra bedroom in my house, and this is the 5x5' closet for it. I used a simple double door kitchen cabinet and a 6' counter top I cut to fit. Shelves overhead give lots of room to store bins of brass and components.

My range boxes are stored on either side of the cabinet.
