The location of the concrete-wood shooting bench was measured 100 yards after testing. The bench style of this project was based on the experience of the builder. He is also a shooter who hates running out of the room just to set some stuff when he is shooting so he wanted a bigger bench. He also wants a shooting bench that can accommodate left-handed shooters. He is a right-handed shooter and decided to build a U-shaped bench to accommodate both types of shooters for himself and his friends.

The frame was made with 2×4 lumber screwed to pieces of ¾ inch plywood. The ultimate plan was to pour the shooting bench on top of the posts to avoid lifting it into the right place later. The builder took 4×4 post, and he traced around all the four corners of the bench. The coarse part was laying the frame on the ground. The builder sprayed paint through the holes, marking the location of the posts. This shooting bench is a combination of concrete and wood.

This is a very easy to follow shooting bench plan. The builder modified his shooting bench by adding a 3rd layer of ¾ inch plywood that is glued and screwed at the bottom.  It was moved from the left leg side closer to the middle. The builder welded the bench legs and screwed in mounts.  Do not use using electrical conduit pipe with the non-taper threads for easy use. However, they wobbled.  Use pipe threads instead.

Even if this shooting bench is not light, it is very strong and solid. Knock the end caps off the legs, leaving bare pipe ends so they bite better into the ground better.

You can have the legs ditched but still in level, allowing you to stand up while shooting slug guns and recoiling rifles.
