Put off this post for some time because thought the reaction might be seen as boasting. I'm proud of what I have built. Halfway retired now, full retire in a year and this was on my bucket list. I love to see what others do. Learned most of what I have from great mentors.

This loader area is in my shop. I harvested a brown oak about 10 years ago and dried the wood. Machined all the wood to make these two loader benches, all out that tree with, some plywood carcasses. I turn on the tunes and load..it is just flat relaxing. If you're concentrating on your loading you ain't thinking about problems mate.

Please post pics of your loader room.

This is my loading area - also doubles for wood working, leather working, and just about any other project. Powder and primers are stored below and wads and shells are outside the photo

This is my loading room I am happy with as I have just stated. View attachment 1769855
Eric, you have a great start on a very nice reloading room. Nice P/W with a good comfortable shovel handle. The main thing is that you love to do it; making those "custom" loads, you just can't find. I enjoy reloading, part of what I call "paying my dues"; nothing feels better than winning an event with shells you made yourself ! Mike* (MH*)

I use those exact same OJ bottles to keep ready-use quantities of powder near my loaders rather than trying to handle the 4lb jugs. I peel the powder labels off old jugs and put them across the OJ labels for identification. Great minds!!

Mine are actually full of shot - but I've considered using them for powder, too. Especially since I have a bunch of 1lb bottles from like batches and it would be nice to consolidate. (I also have one of those Costco sized popcorn containers that I think would easily hold 5lbs of powder)

Does that mobile cart give you any problems ? how thick is that wood it's mounted to ?

I've got a new to me PW800+ that I'm trying to figure out a new space for, all the talk about "no flex" and needing a stable mount had steered me away from anything mobile,
The cart is an old audio visual cart used in a school. I used the shipping plywood that came with the loader from P/W. The cart is made of steel. So there is no flex. The only thing I have to do is clamp the cart to an upright for stability. It works great. The base of the loader is 42 inches off the ground. Perfect for me, I am 6'02.

You are gonna have some fun mate! There is a high demand for gunstocks. Shop looks like a bomb went off as working on too many projects at once or would have posted a video. I am never as organized as I might look. I made the benches and router table. Would not go without a Sawstop. A friend of mine that is a pro blew one of the cartridges a month ago and didn't even break skin. Rikon is good stuff. Workhorses. Built in a central overhead vac system. So worth it.

How much for the router table and stuff

As most of you are aware, I have my butler Haversham do all of my reloading.

He recently informed me that he imported some specialist to do the work for him so he has time to attend to his many other duties.

I suspect these three do not have green cards.

Building a garage/workshop now and will be relocating all my father's reloader's here from his shop / gun range up north.
