Figured it was time I built my own bench in my workshop. I've always used my dad's gear at his house. I'll still go to his house to load handgun rounds on his progressive press (as an excuse just to hang out with him and get out of the house away from the wife and kid...and powder and primers are free at his house
) So, I just picked up a single stage Lee since all I'll be loading is .223 and .308.
I've got less than $25 out-of-pocket in the bench. All the framing and plywood top I had left over from when I built my workshop several years ago. And the pegboard is from a workbench I no longer use. All I had to buy was the light, an 8'x1"x6" for the light frame, an 8' piece of outer edge moulding to trim the bench top (I hate it when things roll of your work area) and the plywood cover which is a piece of masonite the local Lowes sold me as scrap for 50¢.
All I have left is making a surface for the bottom shelf frame of the bench and finding a 32" bar stool.
*edit to add*
I was going back through all the pictures of benches in this thread and lol'd at this...

It's too short. My feet hang way off, but I've managed a few good naps.
