  1. #1

    Post your bench...as it stands!

    Enough show-off threads all over the net.

    What does your bench actually look like on a day to day basis???

    Would you believe there was an explosion in my loading room!

    It's not as bad as it looks, really.
    I need to build more shelves. I've already built 4 shelf units and need 2 more.
    In my defense, it was cleaner but I was looking for something that was buried (yea I know how could it be buried if it was cleaner!)

    OK...I'll admit to being anal retentive about my bench. My wife always wants to know why I can't pick up around the house but can keep my reloading room neat. Simple. She won't allow me to mount a press to the kitchen table.

    Uh.....no way. Not right now. Had the boy home from the Navy for 10 days....we did some shooting, and messed with all kinds of other stuff. It's in layers right now....literally. No way!

    My bench is in a constant state of unorganized disorganization. So is my workshop. Lol

    This was a couple weeks ago, not much has changed.



    Im going to move the shelf out, and extend the bench on the left, and build some shelves above it. Might do a drawer cluster somewhere. Going to put the lubesizer on the far left, and maybe move the press a bit to the left too, and have the center open for gun cleaning, and using the case trimmer as needed.

    I tend to be a little disorganized and sloppy, so I work real hard at overcompensating. Even then, it could still stand to be cleaned up a little. Ed

    Production area.
    Someday I'll get around to really setting it up to be more efficient but for now it does the trick. I also have a powder coat area but that was off subject.

    I feel soo much better about myself. My benches (3) look like I dumped the tool chests out on them.

    The older I get, and the more stuff I have, the worse I am at organization. A picture would have to be as big as the mess to see it.
    The only thing lost in the pile is my mind, and I'm not sure how long it's been gone.
    Information not shared. is wasted.

    So far, no one has posted a picture as cluttered and messy as my bench is. Until there is another that is as bad, I will not post mine.
