There is a reloading bench thread here for some ideas, and another 45+ pages on arfcom. Gather some ideas based on the space you have to work with, and sketch it up similar to one you find that you like.

Go to Home Depot and look at the Strong Tie display.
I'm not kidding.
You will wind up with a bench of any size you like that would survive being thrown out of a moving vehicle.
Use your plywood for the top and a shelf/footrest.

Agreed....Strong Ties. I've built several benches now using Strong Ties including a couple one of which is a reloading bench for the son-in-law. I won't buld another bench that does not include Strong Ties.

My Bad. It looks like Waterloo doesn't make these workbenches any more:

With a little bit of searching, you can find a Waterloo WB5002 on the internet for about $150.

I've been using one similar to those for around 40 years at this point. I got a 1" piece of pine and bolted it to the 1" piece the workbench came with and it's stiff enough for just about anything.

At this point, I've got 6 presses mounted on it, and 4 of them are progressives.

I wouldn't go any other way after all my good luck with them.

Yeah, it's $200, but it's rock solid and well built.

I got the $129 wooden thing from harbor freight for my son several months ago. Now all his grandfather's reloading tools have a home.

My own bench is a sheet of plywood with 2x4's around the edge and 2x4 legs, oh there is a 2x8 or 2x10 bolted to the side for the press.

yeah, I made a nice bench topped it with a tempered hard board to clean easily, its got three loaders attached, couple 550s and a 650, no matter what I still need more room, go figure, easy to build size that works, use that yankee ingenuity we all brag about.

Costco has a really solid bench complete with drawers and lockable wheels. The top looks like 1-1/4 butcher block.

WE saw one last week when we were in there. Too bad I had just built one for here at Northern Command.
