    1. What are the measurements on the table layout on the very first image. I am having trouble setting it out.

    2. You do not need to join anything to get the plans. The material list and plans on listed on the page by linking to “Download Free Shooting Bench Plans Here” in the original article.

    3. It is possible to copy and paste the entire set of pictures and text, but it does require Snagit to copy that cutting outlay.

        1. Boy, I wish you had supplied that earlier, it would have saved a lot of time and aggravation. Nonetheless, thanks.

    4. A solid bench is necessary to get a good zero. More room on top is good if you have equipment such as spotting scopes, lead sled, mechanical shooting vise, or chronograph. Then spare ammo, and maybe multiple guns to test.
      If you sink your posts and get them firmly in soil or concrete and then build teh bench level on the posts it can be better.

      Making some seat overlays so height can be adjusted for different sized shooter so kids, teens and others can sit comfortably is a good idea.

    5. Nice bench but I have no intent to join “SCRIBD” to get the “free plans”.

      You see there is nothing free when you have to “sign up” for anything.

    6. Hey Great gift! Looks like a great bench that won’t move even in a hurricane. Thanks for the free plans.
      Anyone have any idea how much this thing weighs?

      1. Dave
        It will depend on the moisture in the 2X6 and 6X6 lumber. Pressure treated lumber can be real “wet”. Some yards sell kiln dried PT at no extra cost and the weight isn’t too bad. It may be hard to find 6X6 “dry” but the 2X6 dry is pretty common. If it is wet the boards will dry out over a few months and the weight will drop considerably. Leave it outside and the weight WILL NEVER DROP and your back will never be the same. If you leave it out be sure to cover with a water resistant cover e.g. tarp etc. Even with a tarp it will soak up moisture from the air and of course l remain wet and heavy. The table top and seat boards can be a composite material and will not retain much if any moisture. Remember the pressure treat chemicals are TOXIC so either paint the top or keep food stuff off of it.

        1. The weight of the bench that i built to spec, using all pressure treated below ground grade wood was a total weight of 348 lbs.

    7. Several years ago I built a bench similar to this but I put 2×6 skids on it. I just hook it to the 4wheeler or car and move it to the distance I want to shoot from. Pretty handy!
