    The word "workbench" indicates that I will be doing some work. I try to avoid that as much as possible. That's why I don't ask for power tools for Christmas either.

    I remodeled the lat 2 houses I had in Illinois. One requirement of the move to Kentucky was that I wouldn't have to do it again. I gave all my power tools to my son-in-law so I would be covered. I'm now a member of "workbenches anonymous".

    I am taking it for granted that we are talking about work benches for doing "gun work." I have a couple of small shelves on one side of a small 5'6" X 7'6" room. Could easily be put in a corner I guess.
    Reloaded ammo in pnut butter jars, factory ammo, shelf for work or cleaning, other supplies, & the "tool box" on the right is cleaning kit. Manuels & more supplies are on the top shelf. On the left are templets for silouettes & the ring is for a Texas B-27 proficiency target. Inside ring is the 5 ring & outside is a 3. Between the lines is 4. Cardboard at the local Wally World is far cheaper than buying them.





    On the other side is the reloading set up & more shelves for storage. It is ACed & just room for one. Occasionally a grandbaby will enter & ask wacha doin Papa? Prime teachin moment. Nothing collored blue in the old man's room. All RCBS Green.



    Doesn't take a lot of room if you keep it orderly. Hope you get one or 2 ideas from each of us & get set up like you need it in your place.

    If we are thinking reload bench then here's mine - taken a while ago but not much change really. It is opposite side of the office from computer area and so potentially very distracting!!

    (My main workshop bench however would be usually called a disaster area )

    Miggy - no in fact in the pic you can see a 3.5k btu unit in the wall - and the larger unit lower down is a propane heater for winter!! In fact to left of safe is door thru to other half of my office building and there is another AC in there. Despite insulation - with current 90's and humid they are at full stretch! Pricey! Still 75º in here right now and sun has gone down!

    Oh and seasons ... in PA it's Winter .......... and construction

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Just took these pics - the other must be three years old. As I said not too different - just more chaotic!!! I now have about as many turrets as handgun cal dies - so change-over is fast.

    Yes but the did not accumulate over night. When I started loading many yrs ago I started putting brass & bullets in bean cans, shoe boxes, one lb coffee can. Then went to metal coffee cans of the large size. I still have some of them. Sure like the plastic.
    Pnut butter jars are a renewable resourse when you have grandkid & when Papa never grew up either.

    Geezer,
    I have to have it streight. I cant stand a mess.
    Drives me nuts.
