So I just built this today what do you guys think?
NICE! very nice! good job and you should get lots of use out of it.
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.
Well I'm in north Carolina so it doesn't snow that much and I used left over material from the new chicken house we jus made built
I would expect he's going put more than a couple of coats something on it. Maybe some marine concoction..
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
I'm putting wheels on the front two legs tomo to move it around bc it's pretty heavy so there's 2 inches but im prolly gonna keep it in the shop u see in the back ground and wheel it out and shoot from there til I get a range
Looks pretty sweet. Hope it works out well for you.
Looks like nice work! I prefer a movable seat as it helps me adjust for hight of rest / bi-pod and fluctuations in my own comfort, but I'm sure the solidity of your design has its own benefits. Enjoy!
I’ve also been contemplating a shooting bench design. The one at our fish & game club was a chain sawed picnic table. It didn’t have wheels, so people dragged it around. It finally gave up the ghost this past month. I found heavy metal wheels in our local farmers supply store that would stand to be left outside.
I remember seeing a round metal seat that was adjusted by spinning it around a large metal screw like a piano stool. Has anybody seen anything like this anywhere? Where?
I made a quick shooting bench from scrap myself.
I had saved the cut-offs from building my deck. I used the Trex cutoffs for the table top.
The treated lumber and trex has held up well in the PNW rains..
There's several still made. Cheap enough to cannibalize the seat and strut to integrate into your own frame.
Bench looks great, btw! If anything throw a little cushion on the ply seats to make it a little more comfy for shooting.
Brilliant Idea for vertical changes but sometimes I want to alter whether I'm more to the side or more directly behind the rifle, not just vertical changes. Still a good idea to use one of those style stools.
Get a used office swivel chair. You can do the same thing with it. They are cheap and available. Piano stools are not cheap and hard to find.
