    Hiya,

    I've built a few benches for people after they see mine. I build them for standing height for the user. I make a 2x6 box the length required with studs every foot, lag it to the wall in at least 4 places, marry step 2x4's for the legs, 2x4 and 2x6's glued and screwed to the box top for the subtop, cabinet grade birch or maple 21/32 sheeting for the top layer glued and countersunk screwed down.

    To mount the presses, I use Dillon/RCBS strong mounts bolted to 2x2 3/4" maple cabinet sheeting. I have a oak 2x2 rail against the wall and the sheet fits under that and I clamp it on the front edge. This way I can clear the bench top for various projects when needed.

    I'll try to get a pic or 2 and post them later,

    Tom

    All my work and reloading benches are standing height and I have bar stools around for when I want to lean or sit.

    I have one that I built and another bench that I "re-purposed." The used bench is about a 8' section of bottom kitchen cabinets. They work great. The bench that I built is the same height, but has a doubled plywood top with a little more overhang. Both have doors and shelves for storage. Both are very cluttered, too.

    Mine is a steel framed, wood topped work bench from Sears. It's standing height, but I have an adjustable height stool that I use for metallic reloading. For some reason I prefer to stand when loading shotshells on my Mec 9000.
    Shouldn't you be at work?
