    DIY Hanging Target

    Hey guys. Im new here and have been enjoying the past few days checking things out around here and see some the cool DIYs. After seeing a few differnt post that involved building a frame and hanging a target from it, I figured I build my own. It is built with treated 2x4s

    I will also be painting the wood camo when it dries out a little bit. Gonna look nice I think. Ill have to post a few more once its painted.
    Let me know what you think.

    I like the treated lumber idea. I too need to build a hanging target frame, and while I like PVC, after a year or two of sun and winter, I wonder what would happen to the PVC if/when the wife hits the frame with a 'flyer'.

    Yeah I had thought about making it out of PVC too. Looking at the weight aspect of it, PVC is the way to go. But I felt that something that is going to be outside pretty much all year long, if not all year long, should be made with the treated lumber. My concern with PVC is probably the same as yours. PVC can get brittle baking in the sun, getting rained on and freezing in the winter. Over all I think I made the right choice. Thinking about putting some large lawn mower wheels on the back and a rope loop on the front for a handle so that it can be moved around a little easier. Time will tell.

    Dont have to worry about that. I only have about 15-18 yard distance for target practice right now. Thanks for the tip though

    Yeah that was my thought as well. I just need to find some in expensive ones to put on it. Find a junk mower and rob the wheels off of it or something, doesnt really pay to buy new ones.

    Based on where your arrows are hitting, looks like you need to move the target to the left! Ha! Nice job on the stand, looks good.
