    Pics of the CNC cut bench I mentioned in a post above! This thing is solid as a rock! Going to paint it with some really good redwood deck paint even though its exterior sanded plywood.

        Sgt E, That's a pretty nice looking bench. Wonder if a person could make them and sell them at gun shows? Neat the way they are ambidextrous too. RD
        Rocky a guy would probably do well with them at gun shows! Not my design but wouldn't think it's patented or anything. We don't have enough gun shows around here to do it though.

            I too built one of the tables discussed in the above link. I added legs on all 4 corners that are adjustable in 2" increments. The legs slide up and down with a slot milled in them. A flat washer inletted into the slot allows keeps the leg from sliding once the leg is adjusted. That way I can use it on uneven ground when Prairie dogging. I'll try to get some photos up when the weather gets warmer.

              Made one of these the other night with the help of a buddy that has a heated garage. Took about three hours. Tracing out the lines was the hardest part. Used a 3 1/2" hole saw to make the lightening cuts. It sat flat in the garage, I was surprised by how stable it was. I am interested in the adjustable legs idea.

                I can tell you one thing about this bench. Be very careful around the seat. I was using it doggin' and dropped a cartridge case on the ground. I was still nursing my bad knee at the time and as I bent down I reached out for the corner of the seat to steady myself. Due to the design and my hefty size the corner dropped and the seat flipped up toward me. I took it full in the face as I went down to the ground. Bent my glasses, smashed my nose, hurt like hell, knocked the rifle off the table and instantly ignited my rather vile temper (which I'm now normally able to control with advancing age). Let's just say that these benches are proven indestructable even when strewn across a quarter acre of prairie and some good friends, unfortunately, got to see my dark side. I'm still embarrassed about it. Before next year the seat will have a method of securing it. RD

                  I bought one of the Caldwell Stable Tables. I'm reasonably satisfied with it. It works but is not totally stable. I used the original variation of this table about 12 years or so ago and it was much more stable, but it cost three times as much and was twice as heavy. They used to advertise and sell them in the varmint hunter magazine.
