    Whatever you build ... make sure it is rock solid.

    Nothing worse that trying to reload on a rickety bench!

    Empty shell boxes, powder, wads, and hulls take a lot more room than you can imagine. Plan accordingly, especially if you shoot multi gauges.

    Most important...A "Man Cave" has a frig, TV, and it's no big deal if a beer gets spilled. If it has a crapper, better yet!

    I have a 12X14 room upstairs. I have a 10 foot long workbench along the 14' wall. There is a 4 shelf storage unit on one end to store lighter items,primers,odd wads,my 16ga shells, unfired rifle brass etc.
    My bench is built totaly out of 2X6 lumber with a formica top. My sizemaster is on the left end with a drawer under it. There is a hole through the top under the deprime station with a tube to a bucket un the floor for spent primers. next on the top is my powder scale with another drawer underneath. Next is my hollywood powder measure on a homemade bracket and another drawer. Last is my hollywood press and another drawer. I keep reloading manuals,diesets,that kind of stuff in the drawers. On the bottom I store my wads, shot and reloaded shells.

    Build it quick before he comes back as they often try to do.

    Don't forget the "No Girls without escort" sign (unless delivering beer or powder).
