Very nice.
I just bought a jawhorse the other day, and I bet something could be slapped together using one of those as a base. I bet the thing could double as a reloading stand.

A portable shooting bench I built about 10 years back " In fat I like mine so much I built two. 1 for my to haul around with me in the truck , and one to use in my loading room to mount scope's , work on and clean rifles and shotguns .... The legs are built out od 2 inch threaded steel pipe with cap screwed on the feet to keep it from digging into the ground . Top is made out of a solid core 2 inch door . Legs are slanted @ about 30 degrees . It's extremely stable when the legs are screwed on , which are removable for storage in the truck behind the set . Whole thing weigh's about 40 lbs. all together .

Top has a thin piece of carpet glued on it.

My wife's company has a CNC machine for 3/4 plywood....Going to have one of the Benches below made to try out pretty soon.
Will be right at 50 pounds so not to bad and hopefully fairly sturdy!

Sgt E, That's a pretty nice looking bench. Wonder if a person could make them and sell them at gun shows? Neat the way they are ambidextrous too. RD

Amazon has this portable bench for $139 with free shipping if you have "Prime".

I got it and it folds up into 2 pieces and fits nicely into a car trunk or back seat.

The Amazon Blurb states: "360˚ swivel action seat and bench top. 12" Wide x 14" Deep x 2" Thick seat provides ultimate comfort. The 29" square bench top with extended arm rests and padded vinyl cover provide all day comfort. Two shell/gear pouches are an added feature with an adjustable, coated gun-rest to accommodate any hunter. Weight rating is 300 pounds and bench weighs 39 pounds."

Nice folding bench. Thinking a removable brace from leg to front of table would greatly stabilize it. Could even put in a screw adjustment for length. Like the concept/design but being a scrounger would attempt to build it myself.
Could make the vertical removable on both ends with pins--bottom would have 45* legs that folded and mounted again with pins to a plate or platform. That way it would be in 3 pieces and assemble in seconds. Top looks good and with a brace would be rock solid. Am skeptical of factory weight tubing and convenient fold downs.

Pics of the CNC cut bench I mentioned in a post above!  This thing is solid as a rock! Going to paint it with some really good redwood deck paint even though its exterior sanded plywood.

Rocky a guy would probably do well with them at gun shows! Not my design but wouldn't think it's patented or anything. We don't have enough gun shows around here to do it though.

Buds gun shop is down the street here....Getting a Gander Mountain...A Cabelas and already have a Sportsmans Warehouse...Will be gun shop and reloading supply poor by the time spring rolls around!
