Shipping is going to be a bear, a rhinoceros, a moose, and a few elephants! Originally, the H frames were going to have a much wider stance, but home owner wanted more clearance. If it was local, I’d pull a trick out of the boatbuilding hat and melt down some lead or pour sand/aggregate into frame for ballast. But since it’s going far, I’m doing as Ken says and extending dovetail to edge of table. I’m also going to weld a piece of flat stock on top of metal legs that will extend our past legs to help with support/assembly…and the two young boys that may decide to hang from table’s edge.

All is great down this way, Ken! Hope it’s the same up threre!

For anyone reading this, HokieKen just finished building a beautiful gun rack out of cherry. It’s not your typical gun rack, but once you see it, you won’t want want a typical gun rack.
