Yep! Finally finished it off today! Very nerve wracking using that skid steer. The forks have a stabilizer bar and we had to block the top up, pull the skid steer out, then wiggle the table to where it all looked even, then remove the blocks one at a time. We have the last cement soupy so you can move the top around into its final adjustment. Before gravel comes, we'll put the cherry on top and build a roof over it. Is it level? Hell yes it is!!

This is stellar. It might survive a missile strike, too! Nice work.

A more than a half dozen public shooting ranges on the front range in CO and UT have used this design for 30 years. It's the only way to keep the public from tearing up a bench, only complaint we have ever heard through the state association's was "the bench marked my rifle butt" - can't make everyone happy ....

Our shooting range has concrete tops.  I always bring a heavy bath towel to lay over the edge of the table so when I lean a rifle up against the table so it doesn't get scratched or nicked.

The range I used to shoot at had similar concrete benches and they had carpet remnants cut to match the shape of the top. Nice job by the way!

We're still doing some sanding and filling on the table top, but its coming out great and almost ready for the epoxy coating.

What are you using for sanding the concrete?

My brother and I spent yesterday applying the epoxy seal to everything. The lighter color will keep the table cooler in the summer.
