Well, I wasn't able to talk my wife out of the room I wanted, so now I'm still stuck using half of my office as my reloading area. Therefore, it didn't make much sense to do a built-in bench. I ended up buying a Harbor Freight bench. It had been recommended by some other reloaders.

It's 34", so if I want to stand I'll need to raise it up or use a press mount. I'll see after I get it all set up.

My bench is 36.5" talll and I have the press on an 8" stand. Most of the time I sit on a hi bar stool but am starting to stand more. As noted earlier, the handle hits my leg on the pull.

All 4 of mine are 36" high and I use them with 24" kitchen stools, or standing up. For the latter, another 2" would be better...BTW, I'm 6'-0" tall, with a 33" inseam, both of which affect the comfortability of the working bench. HTH's Rod

I sit an an old computer desk in an office chair. I'm at the age that I much prefer to be comfortable. I load for accuracy with a single stage Forster press for all rifle and even pistol rounds, so it takes more time and I prefer to sit and take my time. Reloading for me is relaxing and standing it would be more of a chore. I also sit for reloading shotgun shells.

My loading / cleaning bench is made from "Cabinet" pieces from Home Depot. Ask if they have any "Scratch and dent" pieces. I got a "sink" section and two 16" sections. I then got an 8' section of cabinet top to tie it all together. I left a section near the end where I can pull up a bar stool to clean/work on guns.

This is an old picture.

Just finished building mine this week. To the top I have 43.5". It works well from either my stool or standing. I added the strong mount to avoid the handle dropping to far while sitting on my stool. Overall I'm pleased although I'll need a ladder to access the case feeder if I ever get one.
