This was a pretty simple one afternoon build. It is utilitarian design makes it simple but effective.

I had some extra help with the layout and design, Buck and Leroy.

Looks like that’ll do the job, Pooh. Nice work!

Looks like there’s a couple good dogs who need a treat, though. Arf!

Neil – those are some good looking helpers. Shooting bench looks good too. You just need a couple of cushions.

That looks really stable, I like it. Tony’s gun rest looks really functional as well.
I’m going to guess, Leroy is the one with the smile on his face?

Nice one

Nice! I have to settle for what is at the range, when I go shooting. I live in a city and they get all soggy and hard to light if one shoots off a gun in the city limits. I wouldn’t mind a little property in the county, where it’s allowed “with due regard for safety”.

Is it made of doug fir?

It is a “Pine Species” from the big Green box store. Its all treated lumber since it will live outside.

Nice, Neil! I have also favorited your design. I need one of these before hunting season next year!

I’m betting that Buck and Leroy could care less about such a good looking bench
they probably want to go out and fetch
