    I've been wanting to post in this thread for a long time! It's a modest start, but functional. Finally got it all set up yesterday and ran my first 25 rds of 9mm. It's a Dillon 550B. The C clamps are temporary until I decide on a permanent location for the press. I bought the desk for $25 @ GoodWill and I bought the "shelf" for $5 @ a garage sale. It's really a wooden box that was covered in a nasty carpet that I ripped off, did some sanding and threw a quick coat of stain on.

    Here is my setup.

    Left side is for reloading and right side is for holster making.

    It's all setup at my office so I don't have to use the garage and can reload year around.

    Currently setup for small primer on one press and large on another. Have 2 sets 45 dies, 2 9mm and 38/357. One 9mm is for fmj and the other for jhp. Same on 45. Love being setup like this with multiple powder measures to have them ready with proper powder and grain weight for what I'm loading.

    Thought I was building an extra large bench, but I seemed to be able to fill the space completely and still have stuff in other areas.

    I just finished beefing up my walmart computer desk. Now she is a small workbench ready to have a press added on. Total material added; 1 3/4 plywood and 1 14foot 2x4. Plenty of plywood for bracing or beer pong table.

    Hey, I am VERY new to reloading, but I have to say that is the first time I have seen what I think is a toaster oven on somebody's bench. What are you using it for?

    Ha! The right side of my bench is for kydex holster making. I heat my kydex in the toaster before I press it. Also have a buffer and press for rivets over there.

    Sorry for the mess. At the time this was taken I was loading shotgun shells for our trap shooting kids to take to the Kinsley Kids Klassic in Kinsley Ks. Loaded over 3000 12ga shells this past season for the kids. I think this season we will have a trap shoot once a month and a reloading class the next month. LOL

    That looks great. Having the light under the top shelf really lights it up good in the work area. Who put up your building? We just had one put up a year ago this past Sept. by Gober buildings out of Seminole. I have a 54X64 Morton that was put up new in 1984 It is still a nice shop but I wanted a building just for the vettes so we had the 30X40 built.

    Lovin' those classic vette's! If your loading for the kids, your staying pretty busy on the bench. LOL!

    Our building was put up by Lewis Anthony out of Blackwell. Welded construction style, fully insulated. I've since added central heat.
