Default Built my very own pop up blind platform!

This thing turned out better than I planned for sure. It can hold as many people as I can put on it. It is 7' long by 5.5' wide and 4' high. 2x4 frame with landscape timber legs and a 1x6 floor. It ain't light but I ain't planning on moving it!

My little brother saw it this morning and said he can't wait to shoot something with his bow out of it, and he keeps crawling up n it pretending to hunt.... Looks like we have another bowhunting addict y'all!

If used for bowhunting you might want to add some carpet to the base platform to dull any noises and muffle sound if your chair moves or if you drop something. Looks great!

Yea I wanna put some carpet on it, just can't find any scrap around here, so I'm waiting until I can find some. Do you think having just patches of it under my chairs and feet would be good enough???

I bet you could talk to a carpet installer and go get some of the used stuff they tear out for free.
