      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

homemade shooting bench (now with pictures)

Recommended Posts

I did the normal searches on the internet this afternoon, but didn't really find good plans or pictures for a homemade, portable shooting bench. Has anyone here made one before? If so, care to share pictures?

It was probably less for the legs. Look at the foosball table. Just kidding.

I'm glad I'm not the only guy who looks at the rest of the picture unrelated to the topic. wink.gif

I would agree that is a nice bench. I just thought it was funny that your shoot bench has legs and the foosball table didn't. I am notorious for "borrowing" pieces of other things in our house for hunting/outdoor equipment.

One time I couldn't find my collapsable sticks to hold up my decoy. So I grabbed part of our cloths rack and used those. My wife couldn't figure out why it was so flimsy??

What are those legs for/from? Where does someone buy them? I love the bench, I've been looking for a commercial one for the acreage and $100 or more. I'm building this one now...

I went to the local hardware store (ace) and asked if they had table legs, and they did. Allegedly they have them at Home Depot, menards, etc. that and a 2'x4' piece of 3/4" plwood and you are on you way. basic plans are pretty simple. over all length is 40", front end is 24" wide the back end is 14" wide. The angle cuts start at 19" from the front and 16" from the back.

Underneath, I mount the front legs on 1 layer of plywood (in addition to the top) the back legs mount on two pieces of plywood ( in addition to the top). I cut the hand holds and the gun rests in. I will cushing the gun rests at some point.

The table does lean forward a little bit, but it does all the legs to fold down flat (front legs first)

Thanks for the post and the pics. I think I will build one of those too. Looks like it will work very well and cheap!
