Default Scrap Shooting Bench

Had this seat with a skeet thrower on it laying out behind the shop for 5 or 6 years. The rest is scrap lumber. The thought just occurred to me that we need a shooting bench at the lease.

What about us lefties?

Maybe put the back leg in the middle and then the seat would pivot to either side?

But--I like the design anyway.

Thought about it for a minute....

Actually, there is a lot of adjustment in it if needed. The seat slides back on the rail and in the straight on position, I think it's pretty doable for you southpaws. But you guys ain't right!

Sweet! I love when I can find something to build out of scrap pieces of wood I have laying around. Good Job!
