    So I have taken a little break from the forum and Airgunning in the past six months. I appreciate the pms from fellow forum airgunners wondering what happened to me.

    I recently had a dedicated woodshop built. It has taken several months to get the shop furniture and tools setup the way I liked. The final project was to get an indoor to outdoor shooting bench made. This will give me a four season shooting area. I had a window strategically place to give me an area to shoot out of. A little spin on what Tominco did.

    First of all I made the shutters to allow me to shoot out the window without letting all the heat and or cool air out.

     

    I then decided on a bench that it had  to be mobile but stable. The casters are on a cam to enable me to set it on it's dedicated feet while shooting. I am able to put the bench back against the wall when not in use.

     

    I also wanted storage to hold my air tanks. I generally shoot with an external regulator tethered. The bench has shelves on drawer sliders to access the bottles, shooting bags, chronograph and the boxes that hold supplies.

    The bench is constructed out of birch plywood with two layers of MDF  to give a flat stable surface. The overhang is supported to remove any flex.

    The shelves under the top holds my pellet tins and various other items.

    I hope to achieve an area that allows me to test and adjust my different guns. Now all I need is to catch back up with the hobby that seems to evolve at such a rapid pace.

    Thanks for checking it out!

    My shop isn't quite that clean (OK< it's a disaster zone), but I do know where everything is.  I could NEVER keep it that clean.

    Great bench!
