My sincere thanks to all who have donated their time and money for the loading tables. Here is what you'll find when you come out for our first match of the season on April 29th & 30th -

Two shooting tables done.  Many thanks to Dirtpyle for a ton of help.  I might be able to post a pic in the morning.  The tops are not as good as I would like since that Wolmanized Plywood doesn't have one good side.  Whoever it was suggested some kind of cover for the top, it would probably work well on these. :rolleyes:

I'll bring my belt sander one of these days and we can smooth them out. We'll have carpets on them anyway.

Thanks for all the work!!   :yahoo:  :yahoo:

Too computor illiterate, sent pics to DD

The carpet pieces will do a good job for a while.  I think the sander might be warranted after the treatment dries out a bit. :thumbsup:

Isn't there some type of thick epoxy type stuff we could pour over the top to seal it and hold the splinters down? It's almost like a thick plastic coating when it sets. I know I've seen the stuff used, but I don't know what it is called or where to get it.

I don't think epoxy will stand up to the sun.  We would have to store the tables.

Any roofing material I've ever seen gets nasty in hot weather.  We've got plenty of carpets to cover everything so that should work just fine.  Even if the tables get a little rough the carpets will still do the job.

I agree with Jim. Wow that's a first! They'll still be more stable than what we had and the carpet will be softer and easier on the firearms.

Great looking shooting tables!

They sure beat hay bales or wire spools.

Wouldn't a deck sealer or some marine sealer help with preserving the wood?

Either way, these are the best looking tables I've seen . . . bar none.

Thanks to Dan and the contributors!

Actually that treated wood needs to age before you can put a finish on it, but we would need to do it regularly once we start.  The wood should just turn grey in time and hopefully stay relatively smooth.
