    Default Shooting table DIY

    Once again made from recycled items in my garage. The top should be 12mm multiply but as its 1m long by 700mm
    I did not have a piece this big so looking at a sheet of 7mm hardboard I made a frame to support the hardboard to try it out and see if it would do the job.
    The front leg frame is a reworked trestle and the rear leg also ex the trestle.The table height is 800mm, I needed to make the legs re-moveable for storage so they bolt onto the top. The triangular gussets were added to brace the front leg frame.
    The shooting table is stable enough to use until I can find some 12mm plywood for the top.

    The cushion is used for spring air rifles and the rest moves to the side of the table.

    Cool, great job. I am just wondering how big this garage of yours is, storing all these bits and pieces.

    Really nice.
    I would just put a brace/support between that rear leg and the fronts.
    Trust me, that things breaks off or goes skew in no time.
    On my home made one, okay Ayoba's handiwork, I actually put two
    legs at the back.
    Another nice-to-have is put screw out table feet at the bottom, helps
    to level the table on rough ground.

    Your craftsmanship and basic idea looks spot on tho!

    Added a brace from front trestle legs to rear leg as suggested, also bolt on so the shooting table can be stored flat.
    Had a chance to try it out today with my AR2079B and happy with the result.
