    Google joe Cowan. I just bought one of his superb rests. He might send you the plans.

    made a quick drawing of one i made

    materials 3/4" thick ply

    some scrap foam rubber to go into the curved rest area and some glue to glue the foam

    the cross piece should go in tight and need a tap in that ways its free standing

    This is what I started out with. The white material is a hard foam but not abrasive. I have since updated to a metal one.

    That was also my first attempt at building a stock. I am starting on my second one as soon as I decide which action to put in it. (CZ American or CZ Varmint):)

    Probably not what you are looking for and definitely not as nice as what’s been posted, but I’m cheap. Pants legs filled with beach sand. BB’s, dried peas/beans and other things would work. The top bag is filled loose enough so that a nice V shape can be formed, tho I didn’t do that in the photo. It works for me, and cost $0.00.
