As the title states, I'm looking for plans to build a wooden rifle rest. Anyone have any suggestions?

but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda,
they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." — Jeff Cooper, The Art of the Rifle

Take a look at this, Mr. Buzzard http://www.ehow.com/...rifle-rest.html

You're right, Bill, you're right. I inadvertently melded terms there.
Unfortunately, by the time I realized it, it was posted and we can't edit topic headings.

Anyway, What I really intend to do with this bench is fasten my Ransom Rest to it. I've had the thing for several years and have never had something to fasten it to. I considered a heavy wooden picnic table which could also serve the family, but I like the idea of a dedicated shooting bench much better.

Sorry for the misleading topic heading, Bill. You notice I didn't question your suggestion? I realised it was my mistake.

No problem Mr. Buzzard! Btw, that bench posted on the firing line forum looks pretty sharp!
