    Other than some cosmetic things, it's done. The part I built I burnt with a torch to bring out the wood then varnished. Had built the top and after some heat and varnish, it looks great. Have it well attached to the bottom.
    I have the inlaid strips to use bolts to attach the loaders and can move them with ease or tighten them down solid as a rock.
    Thanks to the wife for helping me move the stuff from my garage to the room. She will do anything and everything but I can't get used to letting her do that. Just not my raising to let my wife work that hard for me. I'm getting stronger so, even though I love her with my life, I want to be a proper husband and provider. I was more like a snail for a w Reloding room  1.JPG Reloding room 2.JPG Reloding room 2.JPG reloading room 3.JPG Reloading room 4.JPG hile there.....Ha.
    Room looks good and I'll mount two of my WWII and WWI rifles up and I'm done. Laptop hookups are in place but I'm sure I'll think of something else....ha.

    Looks good I like the mounts and track on the table. Is that stained or did you hit it with a torch to get that pattern on the wood on the reloading bench?

    You did well! The only issue I see is that it's not being used enough. WAY to organized and clean!

    I just got it done today......Ha. I've got all the material and molds/////etc that I need to cast my own bullets. Staying with Lee molds but one in each cal I'll shoot. I've been buying powder and ammo everytime I go to gun stores, even before the Crono V, so I'm in good shape there. I also have a friend that is, and will continue, to provide me wheel weights. He has a most of a 55 gal barrel full of them and I'm suppose to pick it up asap. Problem is that weighs a butt load. I'm not sure the bottom will hold up so I'll probably just get some buckets and fill them up and take home until I can load the barrel. A lot of the weights will be zinc and some soft lead, but I'll get through what I need. I figure enough to sit outside and cook/mold all day in one cal and weight and get an idea of how much I can do.
    Sorry. Went chasing rabbits again and forgot the main subject.
    No matter what, I'll enjoy what I'm doing even if the first have to be remelted.

    Oh yeah. I'm a bit OCD and I like things in their rightful places. Ha. Can't help it.

    Nicely done! I really like how you've got it all laid out. If you don't mind, I think I may need to copy a thing or two you've done with my reloading setup! I definitely need more more room as this hobby is evolving for me.
