After just seeing the first picture I thought that's where they locked you up at night and weekends.

I quickly realized I was mistaken... the walls aren't rubber lined.

No need for rubber lined rooms in our home.

I think Eric has a rule against posting pictures of yourself. I believe we should all rise as one and ban you from the forum.

I've had my hair trimmed since that picture was taken. I always try to look my best, women appreciate the effort... all kinds of women.

Don't encourage Cobra... this place could end up getting real ugly... you know how unruly he can get when his wife leaves him alone for a few minutes.

My casting break is over, back to the foundry... with the flat screen.

It still gives me a chuckle. Thanks.

Yeah, we "red" guys deserve ribbing when Hornady screws up.

how did you come up with 42 inches?

I have been playing with the tape measure and decided that for me 38 inches is perfect for sitting and 45 is right for standing. I am short at 5.8 so I would think most people would go for several inches taller.

I’m in the process of remodeling my small home office at the moment and I’m building a bench on the back wall. I decided to go with a 37” high bench after doing some searching on the net.

Most places I looked at recommended measuring distance from the ground to the top of your pant pocket, or the crease in your skin at the wrist with your hands resting at your side. For me, that was about 36”, but I went with 37” to get a bit more room underneath. I’ll take some photos when I get home.

That's Jack's drive.

He hired an illegal at $6.50 an hour to stripe the end of his driveway.

I'm 5'8" tall also. Being a process oriented, business analyst, OCD type; for the sitting loading bench height, I sat in a height adjustable chair and got that adjusted right forst.

Then I mounted my press on a temporary horizontal surface to determine proper reloading comfort height factoring in the full press arm stroke. I did the same thing for my standing gunsmithing/cleaning bench factoring in bi-focal focal length for intricate work.

The same process should work for any work surface.

Other notes:

The shelf that my iPod player and powder scale is on is perfectly at eye level. I wired a duplex behind the IPod player to prevent wires all over the place. Another duplex right below it for a spare laptop.

Lighting is easy with three twin 48" 6,500 kelvin florescents plugged into a duplex in case I wanted to change the light source.

My point to all this diatribe is to confirm that Steve is going about the planning process the right way in getting his bench height right for him, and I just wanted to add confusion to the mix.

I am not 100% set on 42". But cabinets are ussually 30", 36" and 42". So 42" is just what I consider "standard. If you custom make them then it's doesn't matter. For instance in a Kitchen I will do a 36" sink area and a 42" upper bar stool area. These tie together well with a standard 6 inch backsplash.
