Does anyone know where I might purchase a collapsible shooting bench (table; platform)?

In the movie "The Edge" they suggest an ironing board makes a good benchrest, but it sounds pretty flimsy to me.

Rich, I've got plans around somewhere for making a small picnic type table out of a single 4x8 sheet of plywood. And the pieces slide in and out of each other, so it turns into a flat pack of plywood about 4ft x 3ft x 4 inches. Not the biggest bench, or the sturdiest, or the lightest, but....

I think I got the plans off the Web, or out of a book called Nomadic Furniture.

In Cabela's spring 99 shooting catalog on pages 62 & 63 they have several. The portable shooting bench at the bottom of page 63 could easily be made at home out of plywood. I'd try that, those premade suckers ain't cheap.
