I always enjoy looking at pics of other's reloading benches (on high road forums there is a ton of pics) so I figured I would post a pic of mine.
The bottom is a wet bar I bought for 65 bucks and it gave me a good bit of storage on the bottom. Put together shelves for the top and it worked out well.

That is pretty sweet! We are looking at a house to buy. If we buy it, there is a room in the garage that will be all mine. And, I will have my reloader set up permanently!

Captain, you just made his reloading room smaller. He needs MORE room for all his STUFF........ :)

That is a GREAT use of space. The bench/wet bar looks solid (and nice). The shelves are WAY TOO organized... :)

NICE JOB ! ! !

Here's my work bench. Hide in closet or bring into living room while watching tv, Whatever. Which we do little of. Powder measurer is mounted on left front corner. Tools/dies/primer are in cabinet. Powder and primers are in a lockbox in closet. There's nothing like waking in the middle of the night to clinking brass. Flutterby can't sleep, so she is either decapping, expanding or priming cases. If I have the powder measurer set for a surtain brand of powder and I tell her. I can wake up to a bench load of filled cases. Once I give her the OK, she is stacking bullits for the press. Damn, I love this gal.

Thanks *******, Try to post picture of the one I use at home. About the same. I do swap powder measurers from both locations.
One has the C press and the other has the O press.

When we go shooting, she has her 500 rds. of light loads and I have 500 rds. start loads. I told her, if she was going to shoot, she could buy ammo or reload. She doesn't like the store bought ammo, to much recoil.

Nice portable reloading setup you have there. How do you stablize it when resizing brass? It has wheels on it...........

While doing some reloading parts (sizing, trimming, etc.) on a single-stage press while watching TV is no big deal...... I do agree with q-sharps4570 about NOT watching TV during some portions of reloading. Mainly during powder throws and if using a progressive press.

And YES...... Getting the wife to do some of the work is RARE and a BIG PLUS..........

All 4 wheels swivel on that table. I have to turn the front wheels out so it will steady itsself. While using the press when decapping and expanding some cals. 9m and 380 auto seems to be the worst.
The frame is a lighter angle iron than the other bench.

Bullseye, accurate #2 and hp-38 seem to fill the measurer just about right. Just eyeball each case before setting bullits, to make sure all cases have about the same charge. I'll dump the last of 50 onto the scale to double check charge.
When loading unique, I have to thump the measurer about 3 times and check charge about every 10 cases.

I haven't tumbled, inspected, decapped, expanded or primed a 38spl case in about 3 years. She sets the cracked cases aside for my inspection. We shoot no less than k per month. 357s are new to us, the 9m and 380s are for my kids. So these are mine for now.

We have DVR with our Directv. We record what we want to watch, Delete commercials. 45 minute nationwide race. 1 hour, 40 minute nascar cup race. 3 recordings of Lost in 1 hour 20 minutes.
