Judging by the number of threads on the subject, a lot of you are building reloading benches.

I thought I'd share an idea for a bench accessory that I've been using for a while:

bins.jpg


I mount a length of plastic track on three sides of my island benches (the 4th side is drawers). I get the plastic track at Sears, and they have a bunch of items that can be mounted in the track including bins (shown) and shelves.

You would not believe how handy this is.

I did something similiar with my bench, then kept knocking the bins onto the floor every time I went to get up. now they're on the top of my bench, in the back (i built mine 30" deep).

for reference. whats sad is i'd spent ~ 2 hours cleaning my bench prior to taking this picture, so i had proof that the top of the bench was indeed still there.

Jasper,
Are both of your Dillons mounted backwards, or is it just the photo inverted?

took me a minute looking at it...like "something is wrong here".

I've been using this setup for several years. They can also be used in other areas to good advantage. Looks like I have a little houskeeping to do !! [grin]

One thing I've wanted to do is build sunken drawers into my bench, i.e. lid is sunk into the table and if you pull it up, reveals storage inside the table. Need something fancier than MDF as my top though.
