Default Building me a new high rack.

Gonna whip me up another high rack, hopefully this will be the last one I build for years to come. Gonna take my time and plan it out.
Iíve hunted out of a few different ones and like the center swivel concept the best.
All out of 2x2x14g
8 foot diameter octagon and 4 tall.
What Iíve got so far.


Iím using a 4 lug trailer axle for the swivel mechanism.
Had to adapt it some

Amazing work! My hunting partners would move my chair by moving theirs right before my shot though!

Looking good. The only thing that I wouldn't like is someone sitting next to me (attached to the same bracket) while I'm trying to make a shot with a rifle!
If he breaths wrong, then you could miss your target!

Amazing ability and impressive craftsmanship. I’m sure you will get many good years of use out of that set up.
