DIY Shooting Bench
Total time: 4hrs
Cost: ~ $125
I did make a set of drawings in sketchup for this, I may go ahead and release the plans if anyone is interested. Starting off, I built the top structure upside down. Cutting everything to size with the miter saw.
After I felt good about that, I flipped it over and added the top, this was 9 deck boards that overlapped ever so slightly. This wasn’t on purpose but i am glad they had some overlap. Easy on the hands :D
By this time, it gets real heavy but it’s time to flip it back over and add the legs and braces. I used 6in bolts to hold the legs in place so that I could break it down if I ever needed to.
One last flip over to setup the seating area and round over the edges with a router and enjoy!
Zach's pro tip
Use lag bolts for the outside wings of the bench.
