Default Loading bench ideas?

I'm going to build a new loading bench and was wondering if any of you guys had any ideas or pictures to share.

Thanks
Jim

I've been looking at the Harbor Freight wooden work bench for use as a reloading bench/gun work bench. The one set up in the store seems pretty stable and the cost seems like it is well worth the price. At least the last time I saw it on sale, don't know what it is going for now.

This is what I used for mine, has held up well and not very expensive. Just add wood and the ability to follow instructions.

Nice setups... I'd better get to work on mine. It's a mess.

I built mine of 2x4s, 3/4" oak plywood& anchored it all together with deck & joist plates & 2" long wood screws. The bench & legs are anchored into the floor & wall....no flex in this bench! The top is 22" wide with the shorter length being 6' into the corner & the long length is 8' into the corner. from floor to bench top is 32". I also put the lower shelves in for storage.

Default Reloading Bench

Mine is just an old metal office desk I bolted a sheet of 3/4 plywood to. Gets the job done.
