This was a project I got done while home on break. I got the plans here: http://www.horstguns.com/services/shooting-bench

The materials were right at $100 at Lowe's. The plans assume a little knowledge and some common sense but are easy enough to work off of. It's solid - no wobble at all. I used a rangefinder (the big yellow one that looks like a radar gun) to set the front of the table 50 yards from my backstop. I put concrete around the legs. I beveled every edge on it. I bought the dowels so I could glue short pieces into the side to hold pistols - had to get back on the road before I got to the dowels. I also plan to build a box behind it to hold targets, pigeon chucker, staple gun, etc., and I'm going to build rifle racks on the sides of the box. Last but not least I'm going to box in around it all and fill it with sand so we don't have to worry about cutting the grass under/around the table.

I'm happy with it. Works like a champ.

Real nice! I've got a suggestion though. Put some wheels on the front legs so you can move it easily.

That's very nice thank you for the link. I'm left-hand and brother is right-hand that is a lot better than the picnic table we share when dueling tree with rifles.

Damn nice. How much ya reckon it weighs? Can two people load/unload it from a pickup? I could not leave that where I shoot or it would belong to someone else in no time....

The best part is that you can use it as a tornado shelter also! :icon_ lala: That looks like one solidly constructed shooting bench. Nice work. :thumb:

I'm not sure what it weighs, but it's really heavy. I wouldn't want to carry it very far.

That's pretty cool, and looks easy enough to make. I may need to try that myself. I think it would be ok left where I shoot, if it's too heavy to move. Might want to build it on site!
