Shooting Bench, your ideas

I'm building a shooting bench, the base with seat I already have and the stem that the top will sit on is finished. The top will be sheetmetal maybe, it may get to hot to shoot off of though. I'm thinking 24" X 32" about 16" higher than the seat, my bags are Caldwell, the rear is 3 1/2" high and the front is 6". Not really high enough to suit me but I can work around that.

What do you guys have or have built? Ideas?


Thanks

    I do not build any but sure like using these made by Jim.

    Shooting Benches

    The adjustable seat moves according to the shooters needs,be it the size of the shooter or the location where the shooting is done.

    I've been using the Coyote Jake bench for a number of years and like it just fine. My buddy and I built a few using the Coyote Jake pattern and now I have one for my range finder. They cost us about $50 to make not counting the seat.

    a genuine Wilde range finder! Nazis used a lot of them for arty and anti aircraft spotting.
