To make your own gun rest, you will need:
- 1-3 hours, depending on how finished you want your carpentry to look and how much experience you have with woodworking.
- Scrap plywood (at least 1/2" thick) and scrap 2x4's (at least 7' worth).
- A Drill and Drillbits.
- A screwdriver and/or a screw-bit for the drill.
- A power-sander and/or sandpaper.
- A saw.
- Wood glue.
Also, a vice comes in handy if you don't have anyone else helping you with this project. You can use it to hold pieces while you are screwing them together.
