    My dad used to build all our lawn furniture when I was a kid, we had several like that, brings back some good memories of sittin in the shade in one of them, sipping on some Kool-aid and listening to the sounds of summer in the country. Thanks rocketman! :thumbsup:

    Got it painted yesterday and today, fingers crossed it will be dry enough to take down tomorrow and get setup and get it broke in zeroing the scope on my unfired Traditions .50 BP rifle, deer season will be here before we know it!

    Good work. Great way to say "Thanks for letting us use your place."

    is there an advantage to go with a "T" as opposed to a "U" shaped bench?

    one range 35 miles south of me has triangle shaped benches made from cement (ugh)

    I built this one because one of our friends that comes down there is a southpaw, so of course he'll be using the other side of the table. I find that straddling the bench instead of sitting on it facing forward is a very comfortable position for firing a rifle, and especially in the case of my Mosin's situates the butt of the rifle into the more padded area of my shoulder to where the recoil doesn't bother me at all even after quite a few rounds.
