Like most of us lately, I have had time on my hands. Time and a small stack of 2x4s left over from a remodeling project.
Decided to cobble them together into a dedicated gun bench, or table really. Since my handloading endeavors are small scale and my available space limited, I went conservative. Its a 24"x48" work surface and 30" high. Top is two panels of 1/2" plywood glued and legs are doubled studs. Freestanding and heavy. I designed this bench around my old faithful JR3. No more clamping it to the table saw to load a batch. Just thought I'd share.

I appreciate the compliments everyone. Yeah, I looked at lots of guys concepts dreaming this up, likely saw your benches if posted online somewhere. A good time building it though and got out of the missus' hair for a few. Now for some man clutter. Thanks again.

Plywood, screws, glue cost me $40. The 2x4s I had on hand but I bought them at some point so probably +/- $75 in it. My plan was to use 1 sheet of plywood but what Lowes had looked like an accordion. I opted for some nicer precut stuff that cost a little more. Thanks for the compliments. I'm busting the champagne on it this weekend!

Yep its empty looking now but gradually changing. Til now, my gear has been kept in Rubbermaids. PITA actually. I only load 4 rifle calibers at the moment so, other than my tools, not a lot of supplies on hand. Thanks all for the compliments. FireEscape, armabill and all others who serve or have served, Thank You!
