Dedicated cleaning station/work bench

I'm trying to get some ideas. I want a permanent cleaning station/gun work bench. I have been using a heavy folding table with a DJ cover and tackle boxes for cleaning supplies minor tools/parts for years. I kind of wanted more storage, maybe drawers or shelves, and a small vice etc. Do any of you have a permanent set up that you like and any recommendations? I'd love to see pictures.

Pix are a little dark but you get the idea. Everything at my fingertips. The best part of this is I have a laundry tub six feet away for scrubbing with #9 and spraying with gun scrubber. After I am done I clean the tub with soft scrub and mama is happy.

WOW! I'm seeing some great ideas that have my mind churning already. I love the peg board idea. The door for a top saves some time and expense. I like the taller station of Jon's with under storage selves a lot. I picture a stool instead of the chair I have now. I will be building what ever I decide on. I think having much of everything in reach is a plus. Keep them coming please!

Ever since I showed my local group this workbench, they sell out quick.
This thing is fantastic for the money. Sturdy and well made. I bought one now I want to put them along the walls of my basement.
No assembly, just unfold. Only thing I did was lag it to the wall studs.

Fmr18E, love the drawers. Something like the wall cabinets across the back is a consideration for me too. I got so many holsters, parts, things I just need to find a better place for than in the bedroom. Thanks!

Some great ideas shown here, wish I had an extra room to turn into a "Gun" room.

The drawers are pre fab, unstained bathroom cabinets from Lowes. The top is a kitchen counter top also from Lowes. For strength I mounted the counter top to two pieces of 3/4" plywood. I used the kitchen counter so stuff wouldn't roll off the back...
