My job always has building mats kickin around which def. comes in handy for alot of crap i decide to build. Its composed of 3/4in. marine grade plywood, Douglas Fir 4x4 legs, and Bandera for the trim( this stuff is so damn hard hickory would be proud of it).

The rear legs are about 3deg. aft and the front legs are approx. 30deg. forward, so you could basically throw a elaphant on the front edge of it and it still wouldnt tip.

Under the press itself i fabricated a 90deg. x 3/16in thick alum. bracket that secures the area around the press itself, and tapped a bolt into the front face that lays against the cylinder housing for support.

It took quite abit of doing, but the wife let me have it upstairs in the main part of the house in my office sooo figured id make it atleast look kinda decent. After the poly dried and she saw it, she was happy with it and so am i. Thanx for all you guys's info and inspiration ~Capn~
nice but you will need a lot more shelves lol. Reloading gear has a way of
Multiplying

Don't let them give you a bad time about it being neat. You've only a couple days on it.

Show it to them in a couple months. !

Yes, they are Akro-Mils. Got them at Amazon. They are "The Economy Stacking Nesting Storage Bin". I got 2 sizes #30718 and #30796. I was getting into too many different calibers and had to keep track of rifle number of times fired. I had marked cardboard shipping boxes all over. I bought a set of each. They fit my shelves, so measure twice and buy once.
I should have done this long ago.
