No luck finding plans for a table stout enough to support an elephant.

Have settled on sub framing top.
Top be one 3/4" sheet plywood, one sheet 3/4 dense particle borad with white laminate.
Both boards trimmed to protect and cover edgess.
I may cut 1/4 steel plates to bolt directly under each press so bolts can't work inside wood tops.
Legs and center beam be 3, 2x4s glued together and planed.
Beyond this I'm still thinking.
Look in the "ABC's of Reloading"... Build the bottom part of that bench... Leave the shelving top portion off.
You could park a car on top of mine. I intended to anchor it to the wall after I built it for more support, but it hasn't been necessary. The bench hasn't moved even resizing M-2 fired .50bmg brass.
