This is what happens when you sit and have a few beers with a guy that needed a new reloading bench. You end up with a rock solid, custom made bench.
This bench is 8 ft. long, by 30” deep and 35” high. It has a 2×4 torsion style top with 3/4 MDF and Formica covering and edged in stained maple with a chamfer.
Each section is separate, so this was basically 4 different builds. The center for the bins was a unique challenge. This part was made especially for this type of bin, and it is for brass storage. It can hold up to 50 shoe box sized bins. It has poplar slide rails and made with box store 3/4 birch ply.
The drawer section is a basic carcass of birch, with stained maple fronts. Each drawer was specifically made for certain items to due with reloading. Primers, dyes and powder each have a nice little home made of 3/16” hardboard.
The other end of the bench contains 2 slide out shelves. One is for the tumbler and the other is for the ultrasonic cleaner. I put a power strip in there for easy access to plug them in. Now all that is missing is some above bench storage, which will be coming up in the sprig.
He is very pleased with the work and I have a lot of shells for the range now.
Thanks for looking.
