I happened across a folding table that had seen better days, so I harvested the legs from it. Being weird like I am, my mind immediately saw a shooting bench in the making...

If you are planning on copying it the dimensions are as follows-

38" across the front
48" long
19" at the tail
on the edges, measure 19" down from the top, 19" up from the bottom, then connect the dots to make your edge.

If I do it will probably be polyurethane. I toyed with the idea of coveringnit with outdoor carpet.

Can you post pictures of what it looks like underneath folded up and standing?

What a great idea! I too have some legs I've been saving and I also have some boat carpet left from another project(we hoarders are a weird bunch). Now, all I need is the time. Thanks for the inspiration.

Nice job, seal it real good if you do decide to apply carpet.
