    here you go.all in CM

    125 long

    the wider section is 40x40

    the narrow section is 25

    the base is a set of stanley saw benches, 59 from most tool places.

    the front ridge is that of 15mm ply just to stop things sliding off the front, like ammo bono's etc.

    cheap to build and simple to have in the truck, both myself and steve think they are smashing for what we need them for. zeroing and long range plinking etc.(saves marking his bonnet with the bipods legs as well.)

    cheers Ian ?
    9' ply and i could not lift it.
    any excuse to show of the skills needed when you have a tight shooting budget, and looking around some places these shooting benches are rather costly.

    the tubes are my 20 tac and my 6mmbr, both shoot better than me

    regards

    great job bob, I have one like that to, using a draper fold up trestle, but I fitted a car scissor jack on mine, as I didn't have a bipod at the time.
    Looking at yours, the plywood top is a better idear as it give you that bit more space.
    I have modified a golf bag trolley to carry the table and my kit to my range,
