Building a new bench and looking for ideas. Please post pictures if you're willing to share your designs.

How much space do you have? That’s a big factor.

Oh man, this has been done a few times on here over the years.

Hopefully someone can dig into the archives and find you the old threads.

Having gone thru several iterations in my garage my current setup has worked the best...but that's for me.
I built my bench out of wood ( mostly 2xs ) but I tie the back to the rear wall with a full length 2x across the length.
double 2x on the legs and 2 sheets of 3/4 MDF for the top with cheap indoor outdoor carpet.
Extremely stable and added storage shelves above and below.

If you're building from scratch I'd recommend attaching gym equipment type rubber padding on the benchtop or something similar and foam panels on the floor. Great help for protecting and finding flying / dropped / misplaced components. Also easier on the legs and back. Also build tall enough to where you can work the press when standing or seated in a high bar stool like chair. Also I got lucky with the shape of my garage because I can use the angled bench as a left arm rest when I am feeding brass and bullets into the press. I think when I retire at some point I will build my bench just like this and hopefully it will be in the house!

Here is something I found handy along with a couple of suggestion.

I found these Threaded-T-Nuts at Ace Hardware. They cost about a $1 each. My bench is 10' so I flush mounted one every 12" or so. Since I have multiple presses I can mount my priming tool or powder measure anywhere that is handy. Pictures should be self-explanatory. A couple of suggestions, if your bench is up against the wall drop the back 1" so nothing rolls to the front edge. If you ever think you may some day want IN-Line Fabrications mounts, cover your bench top with 3/8" plywood. This will make it easy to cut out for their mounts.
