The Constitution was originally designed by the request of a few clients back in 2009. We listened to the needs of these enthusiasts and created a balanced counter weighted bench that uses the rear top tier shelving for balance when using a reloading press. We also added the optional “Side Splashes” to assist in keeping everything on the table. Since its inception, The Constitution is now in thousands of Homes, Gun Shops and Custom Gun Rooms. But don’t let its purpose fool you.... this bench is also used for other purposes and makes a great Top tiered Workbench as well!
Legs, Frames, and Bottom shelves are honed from 2” x 8” Dense Select Southern Yellow Pine. This wood type is highly resistant to wear; therefore, it is suitable for Post & Beam Homes, Flooring, Decks, Patios, Marinas, Boardwalks and other high-traffic applications.
The 1 3/4 " rock-hard edge grain construction of our Wood Welded Butcher Block Top assures you of the maximum durability and the greatest construction strength available. Tops are finished with DURAKRYL 102. This tough, acrylic coating will repel alcohol, bleach, even paint thinner! These tops are hard at work in factories and on shipping and receiving docks around the world. In the material handling business there is no better top than a solid Laminated Wood Welded Maple Butcher Block.
For the money, this is the Best Custom Made in USA Wooden Workbench available anywhere and will give you lifetimes of hard working service that can be passed to generations.

- Love it!!!
- John, I finally had time to assemble the reloading bench. It is awesome. It brought tears to my eyes when I had to drill the beautiful maple top to mount my reloading press
- Dear Santa! I mean John !
- Dear Santa I mean John,
I received my bench today, and I couldn't get home fast enough to check it out. Within an hour my son and I had it unpacked and put together. I am so so happy with the way it turned out and more importantly my wife really liked it. (You know what they say happy wife happy life). Anyway I just wanted to say the extra wait was worth it and to thank-you very much. Keep up the good work.
God bless you,
San Antonio, Texas
- True Legacy!
- Truly a legacy to pass on. My Son loves it John. Thank you!
I got my reloading bench and shelving units and I just wanted to let you and your crew know I’m really impressed with the craftsmanship. Yall did a great job.
Pass my thanks on to everyone there.
I have one question. What is the brand name of the stain you use?
I’m doing a little wood work and wanted to match it.
- John, The bench is WONDERFUL. Thanks for a great job and a great product. We couldn’t be happier with the product or your amazing service. I wish you continued success!
Got the workbench assembled over the weekend and wanted to let you know it's gorgeous.
All I can say is WOW. What a pleasant process, friendly service, and of course the final product! I was blown away at the level of craftsmanship. Beautiful, but still with character - you can tell that the bench is handcrafted. I am a competitive pistol shooter, and compete regularly in USPSA. When we moved to Florida, the heat and humidity made reloading in the garage a definite "no!". The search began, and of course the question - "Do I build one myself, or have a bench made?". Let me tell you, if you have average skills but don't have the time, and want the quality of what you order to blow you away - just order your bench from American Workbench! My bench definitely has the stamp of approval from my wife!
I haven't mounted my press yet - but the bench is heavy enough that I won't have to anchor it to the wall, and I'm also very excited about that.
Thanks for making such a quality product - you have one very happy customer right here!
All the best,
- Met All of My Expectations
- Hi John just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the bench. Top notch!!!!

In this world of instant gratification, where most furniture buyers walk into Bob’s Discount Furniture, Ikea or Ashley Furniture and walk out an hour later with something that’s substandard and unsustainably produced overseas by huge multi-national conglomerates, we find ourselves immensely grateful to our customers for their patience in waiting for the real thing. When buying furniture that’s built to last a lifetime, we hope you’ll feel it’s worth the wait.
