Default Shooting bench plans

Does anyone have plans for a shooting bench? Preferably a double one. I saw some on YouTube but not exactly what Iím looking for.

Thanks- I found these plans and was going to modify it some. After seeing the spool idea that might even be easier/better.

I built this one a few years ago, works great for our .22 shoots and we drag it around for longer range shots.

I love this idea! Up to now, we’ve just been using a 6’ table and some old restaurant chairs that we keep in the barn. Easy to haul out when you want to shoot, easy to put away when you’re done. The problem with this is that the table is too low for most chair heights which makes looking through the scope.

Looks like the clearance height between the seat top and the table is far more generous. Plus, I think I have an abandoned spool I might just have to appropriate.
