    Gun cleaning area

    Do you have a permanent gun cleaning area or do you set up ad hoc as necessary?

    I've got a cheap folding table from Walmart that I set up in front of the television. 500 mile NASCAR races are a good time to clean a pistol.

    I've got a place set up in a portion of my shop.

    My reloading bench is also my cleaning bench. I have sealed the surface of my bench to prevent the benchtop from absorbing either gunpowder residue, or oil.

    When I go down to my workshop, I am either reloading, or cleaning guns, one or the other; never both in the same session. That way I keep only the necessary materials out on the bench at any given time.

    I have a covered patio. It is not visible from any of my neighbors yards or the street. I like to go outside and do the cleaning on the patio. That sort of solves the problems with odors from various solvents and lubricant.

    I would not recommend doing it outdoors if you are apt to lose springs or if a neighbor might see what you are doing and become upset.

    I work from home and my home office is the only space in my home that is exclusively mine. My safe and my ammo locker are also in there; so for cleaning, I have to clear my desk, get out some old news paper and transform my office.

    I have an area in my basement with a work bench that I use for cleaning. If it's nice, I'll use my back porch since the side with the neighbors is covered by trees and bushes.

    I am one of the lucky few who has an awesome wife that understands she does not need to understand why a man needs a man room in order to not put up a fight about it. In reality she welcomed my Xbox 360 not being hooked to the LR TV so when we bought our house, I got the front bedroom as my manroom, she got the rest of the home to decorate as she pleases. The funny part is as a man I don't have a whole lot of issue with however she wanted to decorate anyway, but a fake compromise is still compromise! So my manroom houses a 42" plasma, my Xbox 360, all of my movies, my work bench (a full size door with a table leg kit attatched), and various other man cave shrine like stuff. My work bench is used for leather, reloading and gun cleaning here I'll post pics! We need a show us your man cave thread! By the way the British flag is a Jack that flies on the bow of a british ballistic missle submarine, I traded a USS Miami (the submarine I was stationed aboard) ballcap for it in Faslain Scotland.

    I don't have a good spot to clean a gun right now, that's why I'm wanting to get a shed and have been looking into that - just for things like this, etc.

    I got fussed at last time I used the kitchen table. so I guess that's out. Now that it is under 100 degrees in North Texas, I might even use my reloading bench in the garage.

    I've dedicated a sizeable portion of a work bench in my garage to gun cleaning. My supplies are shelved above the bench and I have plenty of room for gun maintenance. Since I'm in the garage a little Gunzilla or Ballistol spillage isn't going to get me in any trouble with you know who.
