I built this reloading bench out of box-store available material. The posts are cedar, the trim is oak, and the rest is dimensional lumber, Baltic Birch plywood, and painted pegboard. The bench is a simple frame that holds two drawer boxes and has structure to support the 1.5” thick particleboard top. Covering the particleboard is two pieces of replaceable, 1/4” tempered hardboard. One-inch, 90-degree oak, outside trim surrounds the top to keep any round items from rolling off the bench and onto the floor. All of the exposed wood was given at least two coats of de-waxed shellac, while the trim around the bench top received three extra coats of wipe-on Minwax polyurethane to protect it from solvents.
In the future I plan on enclosing the area in the corner to store “secret” items… I also plan on adding a shallow pull out drawer on the “desk” portion of the bench, as well as construct a shallow cabinet to hold cleaning supplies.
