    Home made high seat

    A new piece of ground that I'm in the throws of getting requires the need of a high seat so this is my first attempt.
    My mate got me the steel ,i had a few bits at work and the use of mother-in-laws partners workshop was an hours labour fixing an oil leak on his lorry..............................
    Here goes

    Steel for high seat

    Seat in progress, seat base is half a blue water barrell

    Ladders made, the main box is 20mm and the two fit together by a box sleave that is welded on one end of the ladder

    Painted ready for final assembly

    Seat and shooting rail finished, the rail slides up and down in a piece of box and secured in the right height by a locking bolt on the side of the box section

    High seat in position at another ground just for testing.

    Views from up the high seat, the roe are coming out where the hedge meets the wood on the first picture.


    The total cost is around £35-£40 so I am quite pleased with the end result.
    Spent 2 hours up it monday evening and was remarkably comfy.

    It was made up as I went apart from the rail which was similar to one A mate hasbut the rough dimensions are

    Ladder sections 1.5m high and 30cm wide runners and 20cm larger box section as the sleeve
    Seat is 30cm wide x 50cm long
    Shooting rail is about 1m wide, the side pieces about 75cm long. The hieght adjusters are about 80cm long.
    The main box section is 20mm and the other box is bidg enough for the 20mm box to slide in.

    A bit vaige I know but it was made up as I went along
