    Instead of throwing brass at it, try 40 grains of lead.

    no shooting inside city limits.

    may end up figuring something out to stop him with out shooting him. maybe have to build a real door. would have to be a very custom door. not enough height for a standard door with a frame. want to look good.

    too much stuff for my little reloading room (storage area too)

    How about spraying ammonia around the area to deter him.? Or the stuff pet supply stores have to keep them away.

    Is his litter box somewhere in the house that he is bothered trying to go there? (Dog, other cat, something else). He may be finding less stressful to go in your room. Or he's just a pisser and always will be. Act like his mother and snatch him up by the scruff of the neck. Or put a litter box somewhere less stressful.

    I will second the recommendation to try shellac for sealing the smell. I built a new bench and treated it with oil. It was in my room and stank the whole house up. I tried wax on top and that did nothing. 2 coats of shellac turned off the smell. I use dewaxed shellac, you can then go on top of that with any other finish you may want.

    Brass should be easy to get the smell off of, Citric Acid should do it.

    They make enzyme cleaners for cat pee smells that will remove ALL of the scent off non wood surfaces, much of it off wood surfaces. You may have to get a motion sensor type air sprayer to convince kitty that the reloading room is off limits though.

    could get a sander and sand the top 1/8 inch layer off of it.
    then spray pure bleach on the wood and let it dry for a week.
    After that get some epoxy paint and seal the wood.
    It should stop any urine smell.

    I have been organizing my shop too.
    Its 20x16 and I have only loaded some boolits that I already had cast up or that I bought from Casting Machine.
    Its time to open the factory back up and get to making Boolits.

    It amazes me on how clean some of yalls shops are.

    if you check the pet supplies they sell products to remove smell seem to work well for me.

    Off these weekend, see what I can do about the desk. Have to stop by Wal-Mart. May pick up two air fresheners. One in the room the other in the hallway or stairs leading to the room

    update

    the ruin desk is out. should of knew what I was getting into after a kitchen and dining room remodel. guy loved his nails. I was wondering why I keep putting holes in the wall in the behind the desk. paper then dry wall. no use really patching them. may just up wood paneling or just new dry wall over the old. was able to save all the shelves. now to figure out what to put there and get everything out of the middle of the floor. do have counter top left from the kitchen remodel as well as particle board but no lumber for building the base.

ID:	229174My reloading room bench came from the local habitat store. It’s made of several thick office cubicle desks which were already shaped into a corner shape as opposed to a straight bench. Shelves are dedicated [ ie: the thickness of two plastic rcbs die boxes] and go to the ceiling to give me as much shelving storage as possible. My lighting is 4 of the desk lamps that are mounted to the shelving and have the 4 parallel supports which allow me to raise, lower and swing them to shine wherever I’m working as I have 5 presses mounted on the bench. Don’t forget shelving under the bench too. Here’s what mine looks like now, messy, but I’m working on a couple of projects right now.
