Solid top? It doesn't snow where you live?

I think it looks great. I like the wide stance on the forward legs.

Hope the OSB holds up.

Yea like I said it was left over stuff from the chicken house I'll put something on it but I'm not expecting for it to last forever a year or so until I build my range and build a bench to use forever

It looks like a HEAVY stable table, but maybe you can tilt it up on a couple of cinder blocks when you're not using it so's the rain & melt can run right off it.

I love threads like this! Great job, looks like it'll work well for ya...

What do you have in mind for the range? Distance? Handgun/rifle/shotgun/all of the above?

I'll prolly go out to about 200 yards I don't need too much and I'll shoot the 10/22 at 100 the ar out to 200 and all the other larger caliber guns I don't shoot to often so no need to try to really stretch them out
