I’m guessing there are some hunters on this site. But then again I’ve never seen a hunting blind posted in the projects section, I’ve seen about everything else made of wood. I didn’t want to post this in the project section. I thought maybe I could get a look at how other LJs go about building hunting blinds. So if you have any pictures feel free to post.
The blind pictured here belongs to a friend. It is the blind he shot his first deer out of. But at the time it looked nothing like the one pictured. It was a single seat 1”angle iron metal frame. It had no roof, no floor, sat on the ground with scraps of plywood leaning against it. Well my buddy got married. So now he needed a two seater.
Pictured is what I concocted. First the frame was expanded and a second seat added. A sign company messed up and got the phone number wrong giving us an opportunity for a good grade of plywood. I used some 2×6 fascia board to frame the windows. The windows are made from a sheet of polycarbonate. The front windows are hinged, framed out of wall angle commonly used for acoustic ceiling construction.
The side windows are sliding panels, the grooves are dados cut into the 2×6. The back windows are fixed. It has store bought seats, & a couple shelves on the inside. The pictures pretty much tell the rest of it.
