Hope this is posted in the correct location.

Wanted a portable shooting table - this is what I came up with.

Material
Two pieces of 1/2" plywood - shaped to suit.
Canadian tire stands (they go on sale for $10 each)
"L" brackets for rigidity
and a stool

I initially thought a three leg table would be more stable, but this
works well.

I have attached a clamp on the side for a spotting scope.
Having it fold away is great for transportation.

Your shooting table looks very useful. I like it. Could you please post a link for the stands from Canadian Tire?

This table was made from 3/4" ply and CT legs, but different collapsible folding with a wider stance than the ones used above. These make for a very stable platform.

I use an old Black & Decker Workmate model 300 that I have had for decades. It's very stable and collapses for transporting.

The link for the legs is:
http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/mastercraft-sawhorse-with-telescopic-legs-0571635p.html#.VU5Rq2Pu3IU

The listed price is just silly - they go on sale for $10 often.

Daryl's table legs suggestion - link:
http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/tempest-folding-table-legs-0463004p.html#.VU5Su2Pu3IU

I just wanted the table and leg set-up to be as compact and light as possible - it is very stable.
There are also several good options being suggested.

Great idea with the handle and carry strap. I have one of those CT saw horses - still haven't worked out how to put it up and take it down without risking loss of fingers!

I just found out what to do with the little orange garage seat my brother in law gave me ten years ago and is collecting dust,, :ANAL:

You can 'just' see it - on the right hand, green table, just this side of the rear brown sand bag, you can see a dark line. That 'dark line' is the carry handle hole. The table's legs fold and it's a board with folded legs for carrying. Simple, sturdy and rigid.

Another 'bench' that is rigid/solid, is a bipod on the rifle's forend resting on the front box of your quad, with you sitting beside it on a chair.
