Re: portable shooting bench Hunting

Hope this helps. I built one and have no complaints other the legs are too short. Extemely stable enough for a 900+ pdog shot.http://ambrutis.com/john/page10.html
You can buy the legs at Home Depot and lenghten the legs with conduit stuck up inside the legs and held in place with a screw. Good luck

Crow Mag

If you think something is not possible move out of the way so the ones that are doing it can

Re: portable shooting bench Hunting

My bench has the same top as "Crow Mag" but for legs I used a 2foot piece of 1.25" galvanized pipe which can be screwed into a threaded flange. Four flanges are permanantly mounted to the bottom of the table.
Slid inside the legs are pieces of 1" galvanized pipe. They can be adjusted to accomodate uneven ground and tightened with a "T" handle bolt. This is an important feature and prevents the table from rocking when it is placed afield.
All the material is available at Home Depot or any plumbing supply store. It all works great but is a bit heavy if the table needs to be carried very far.
I have also made a set of mounts on the bottom of the table so that the legs can be unscrewed from the flanges and attached flat to the table bottom for easy transport in a car trunk or truck bed.

Do you have any pics of your table and adjustable legs?

Re: portable shooting bench Hunting

Here's the one I use. IT's made from a bar tabletop, some 1.5" aluminum conduit (I now use 2" and will change mine in the future), 3 conduit couplings and 3 mounting plates made of 1/4" steel. The couplings are cut/ground at about a 20* angle. Just screw the legs in and flip it over. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
