    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.

    Good job, mate. That is going to much more manageable in three bits.

    Cracking seat Jonathon, noticed you didn't have a stabiliser bar from the ladder sections to the trunk of the tree as my seat needs so was just wondering if your ladder sections are very stiff or you don't mind a bit of flexing?

    It does have a bit of 'flex' but not that much. What I might do is just cut a hazel stick just as a prop when I relocate it.

    Mark 2 might have a couple of mods, on going development. I want to keep the weight down and it packs down small enough to fit in car and carry on your back.
