    This table is 5'x3'x48" the top is 2" thick, the legs are 4x4's, the top support is a 2x6, the bottom brace is a 2x4, all the hardware is 5/8x6" lag bolts with the top screws are #10 x1". Total build cost was: $87.00!! My press tool head and all my Supplies that go with it are locked up in my safe for safety, and it is Post Policy, + I don't want my 2 Boys playing with it!! The pics were took today after I cleaned up my mess. my table is in my basement. The only thing I need to do is get and mount a light above my table so I can see better!!

    You are going to need more room pretty soon! Mine runs almost the entire length of my garage and has a full length shelf underneath the top and I still have to store a lot of my reloading stuff in the shed.

    Of course, I am a pack-rat and have been collecting reloading goodies since the early 1950's.

    NICE JOB!!!!!!

    When you make mine, I'd like it longer.


    Nice table

    Very nice! Are you bolting it to the floor or a wall? If not, maybe put a shelf on the bottom by the supports and you can put all your bullets there. I've got a ton of bullets (weighs a lot...not quite a ton) and I put them on my bench to add stability. Convenient too! Just a suggestion.

    Looks nice, but you're gonna need more room, better make a shelf to sit on top of your leg supports.

    Since you'll be building a larger one, I'm willing to take it off your hands. Looks good.

    Looks nice. Hope you aren't moving soon. It may be easier to get a safe up the stairs. I'm getting ready to clean out my shop and make my reloading area up.

    That looks fantastic!

    Did you build the benchtop or were you able to purchase it?

    Very nice and it looks very sturdy... I did something similar, but did not finish it as nicely as you did.

    nice, good looking table. it will look better when you get a few nicks and dings and spills on it.
