For those of you that liked the staircase hide that I posted the other day, here's some more of my brother's handy work. I think he can make them to come apart easy and be set up where ever you want. The top is long enough for a .50 to be set up on.

Terrific looking bench. Why the notched seats, though?

Looks to be nice work, but with five legs I'm thinking it's going to need a really flat surface to set on. Maybe there are levelers that don't show in the photo.

I have always admired work like that. My dad was a great woodworker. My expertise goes as far as making a work table and even that came out ugly. Also liked the stairs hideaway, that was pretty creative.

50 Shooter, tell your brother that's nice work. 4x4 legs for solidity no less. (I've puttered around a woodshop for many years)

Uh, the credit all goes to 50 Shooter's brother. :)

Probably so one can sit in the seat crossways, or at an angle. Kind of hard to explain, but I can see the idea behind it.

As far as leveling it, if it is going on a level concrete surface, probably not a problem, if it is, shims can take care of it. If it is going on a gravel or grass surface, no problem.

The Left-hand, Right-hand set up is my only question. Wouldn't it be easier just to make it either Right or Left handed, rather than ambidextrous?

By the way, very nice job, I'm jealous, and am thinking how do to one myself. I just use about anything available including car and trunk hoods, old shop built picnic tables and a wooden wire spool that the Electric company left behind.
