    New bench

    So I recently got into reloading, and wasn't sure how I was gonna like it, so I just mounted my press to a board and clamped it to a table I happen to have in my office that I used for my other "hobbies". Well after reloading over 1000 rounds I took the money I saved by NOT buying ammo and got myself the making for a workbench. This morning I set to task getting it built and installed. It's 48" wide by 27" deep. Two 48"x16" shelves above, 1 48"x16 shelf below and 1 48"x27" shelf below that. Now I need a new chair as it's 36" tall. I used the 2x4 basics leg kit, as well as their shelf kit to build the bench. Top is 3/4" curly maple plywood. Very happy with the end result, much easier to stay organized! I attached some before and after photos to show the difference

    Good job. You may want to consider a plastic chair "mat" for your carpet in case you spill something.
    Makes cleanup easier.

    2x4 basics is the name of the company. They make all sorts of stuff for turning 2x4s into furniture. I also have their deck bench kit that I changed into a raised planter table for my wife.

    Nice use of the space. Be careful of static electric if your on a carpet.
