I have the same Lyman press.

And I like standing height benches too.

If you have an Orscheln's near by, check out their livestock mats. They are about 3/4" thick and I think 4x8. You could stand on one for a bit and see if to your liking or not. A friend uses one like a exercise mat on a concrete floor.

As a bonus they're absorbent which is good since I can be messy.

ETA: I was sure to leave room for under-bench drawers as a future upgrade. I've already got something vaguely in mind like ~15" wide plastic bins sliding on "L" brackets.

I got a bunch of the 2'X2' foam puzzle pads from Home Despot. They're not absorbent, but I like that 'cause I take them out and power wash them once in a while. Too bad you're on the other side of the state (I think). I have a stack that I'm not using.

I purloined our old dining table. I have the upper body strength to work a press while seated and not the knee endurance to stand.

Nice bench there, Eric.
