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..............................
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.
