    The large rolling tool box is only reason I can find anything, lots of dies, priming tools and parts are stored there.
    You can't see the powder cabinet and bullet shelving. They look just as bad. I keep saying to myself when I retire I'm going clean it up. Now the wu-flu might keep me working indefinitely.

    This sideways picture intrigued and challenged me. Here we see it with the drawers down, double click on it and it rotates to drawers up. I fixed it so it's top up, wheels down.
    Nice room, Ken

    Not as messy as some but cleaner then others. When we downsized from a home to a condo and I had to downsize my reloading bench as well. This is a pre-made work bench my wife bought me many years ago. it is 60" X 26" X 33"H. I would like more room sometimes but it works. The top is drilled with threaded inserts for additional tools which helps with the use of limited space. Steve

    Ok I would love to share a pic of my new reloading room and benches. I do not know how to put pictures on the forum from this IPhone. So I will just tell you what I did.

    I made two 2’x6’ benches 42 inches high. I stuck them to the wall in the middle of the room with the 2 foot side attached to the wall and sticking out into the room 6 foot from the wall. I then lined the walls with 18 inch benches at the same 42 inch tall. This allowed me to put six progressives in a two foot area. This would have taken up 10-12 foot of wall space on a bench.

    I will see if I can learn how to post pictures with this phone. Sorry
    Stop being blinded by your own ignorance.

    Moved to this house about a month ago so still in the process of trying to adapt to the new loacation.
    None of my presses are mounted to my bench all on the 2 portable stands and another stand with my single stage in a closet so they are not in the way when using my bench for other things. The folding table in the middle of the room (making a holster on it now) gives me a place to set the containers from the shelves to get out what I need some have dies ,brass ,gun parts leather working items etc.
    Mainly a motley assortment of old furniture and garage shelving. The main bench is a Harbor Freight wood bench with a cut down solid core door to expand the top.
    The 3 presses in the pic. are the ones I use the most now , mainly handgun ammo.

    You can't see my bench top except for the area right around the lee quick mounts. I'm thinking I may need a 3rd quick mount.

    I shared pictures of the reloading benches some of you have with my wife. She said nothing but gave me “the look”. Guess I need to pick my battles.

    Hereís mine. Same plans as above. Modified very little. I have presses and accessories mounted on boards that I C clamp onto bench. I may make another top and put tracks in it so I can mount things further back onto bench.

    Moved into a house a few months ago and just getting around to setting things up the way I like. Couple shots of my reloading 'nook' and my brass prep station. House I moved into has a really large basement, especially the unfinished side, which the boss said it was my 'safe space' to do with as I please...

    Table I picked up from the red tag area at work and dropped a piece of 3/4" MDF on top and added a couple 2x2 legs underneath to gain rigidity at the press locations. Also utilize a couple Lee Bench Mount Plates at the table and the brass prep location. Have my CoAx, Classic Cast, and few lubrasizers setup for that system. Nice to be able to move over to the bench when I want to stand.

    I used the same plans slightly modified for mine (in post #13). Most notably I omitted the frontal doors. Very sturdy design.
