    I was just wondering what you guys thought. I can get spare lumber from work every now and then and decided I wanted to build a shooting bench. I've gotta throw some carriage bolts through it yet to sturdy it up a bit and then I think I'm going to plunk it down at my shooting area. It only really cost me the carriage bolts and screws with a little work of course. Some day I'll get to take it up to the range, just so busy with family, college, and overtime all of the time its crazy.

    Not a bad looking bench is the wood pressure treated as if not will not last long out in the weather.

    Nice looking bench. How much does it weigh?
