Building my new bench soon, within 2 weeks!

Postby R. Chapman » Mon Jan 27, 2014 12:58 am

The total length of it is going to be 10 feet long with the top being 47 1/2" tall. 2 heavy duty shelves to put all the powders, bullets etc. in. The top itself it goin to be 2" thick with a hardwood I'm still deciding on. I'll be able to have room for both my rifle/pistol reloading and shotshell. I'll post pics of the space tomorrow but its in the garage where my current set up is.

The far right stainless shelf and all the crap on there is going in the garbage. Then all the shelves there will be moved down as far as they will go. The space I'll then have is about 10 feet.

If you can get by with an eight foot long bench it will be easy to make with a four by eight sheet of three quarter inch plywood cut in half length wise and glued and screwed together. More that solid enough for a loading bench. A two foot wide bench will provide lots of room behind the presses to store stuff. Just my thoughts.

Ron, I thought about using plywood a week ago, then this happened with my current bench.

Thanks for the suggestion though! :D

Yup. Particle board sucks. Gets a little damp, then falls apart. Good 3/4" plywood doubled over will be cheaper and tougher than most any hardwood top you will put on it.

Got all the material last night. The top is going to be 1/2" of particle board with a finish on top. Then 1 1/2" of plywood. Then 1/2" thick shelves underneath with lighting fixtures to see. Later I'll figure out top lighting to see everything on top.

Dad's not much of a carpenter, huh?

I finally got everything mounted onto the bench other than my case trimmer (which I'm still for RCBS to send back).
