That is really something! I can't wait to hear about the reactions you get pulling it down the road. Put a few tiki torches on it and you can use it as a bar in the offseason!

Too cool.

Coming along very nice. It appears it should be very stable Why are the 2 seats so close to each other? How about something to hold a coffee cup or water bottle.

Thanks,

I put those two swivels that close so I can build a wide padded bench seat to the right. The bench will be additional seating and be a little more adjustable if someone can't find a good spot on the stationary chairs.

Adjustable seats would be nice but I built it for my own comfort and don't plan on having a lot of others use it, so I thought heck, I'll just do what's comfortable for me and go from there.

I actually have one stainless recessed cupholder left from a boat project that I thought about adding to the bench top. I'll probably order 3 more and put them in!

As it evolves how do you see yourself using it?

I am not really sure to be honest... I want to believe I'll use the heck out of it on the weekend shooting with friends, but it may not happen. If not I'll just enclose it and use it as a blind I guess...

Re: My shooting bench trailer build

Got a few things done lately, sorry for the lack of updates. Anyways the awnings are on, small seating bench built, rear jacks are welded on. I need to put a few more screws in the tin and mount my new tires then I'll be ready to start enjoying it!
