I made this stand last night out of 1 1/2 inch pvc from lowes.
The cost was just under $25 and took about 2 hours to build.
It has a plug in the back to add water or sand to weigh it down.
In the up right position it is great for sighting in bows.if you lay it down it puts the target closer to the ground.

I am curious. What purpose does the stand have? I have always just set my bag on the ground and I have never really had any issues with that. But I have family members that are plumbers and alway have extra pvc. I figure surely I can make one of those if its a difference maker. Thanks.

It gets it up closer to shoulder height, and allows the bag to swing and absorb a little of the impact.

here is the material list some of you have been asking for

3) 10 foot sticks oh 1 1/2 inch pvc
4) 90 degree elbows
9) sanitery t's
4) 45 degree inside fittings
2) 90 degree inside fittings
1) 1 1/2 inch clean out (optional)

cut 3 pieces at 32" long 3 front cross members of target
cut 4 pieces at 15" long upper front legs
cut 2 pieces at 14" long lower front legs
cut 2 pieces at 27" long two bottom sides
cut 2 pieces at 14 3/4" long back of target for the sanitary t for clean out
cut 2 pieces at 3" long rear of target out of sanitary t
cut 2 pieces at 39" long angled back brace

if you do not want the sanitary t clean out then cut 4 32" pieces instead of three and disregaurd the 2) 14 3/4 pieces the clean out is there for if you wish to weigh it down with sand all you have to do is fill in the bottom

here is a reference sorry i had to do it in ms paint

I have built a couple of these , but I did not use the bottom frame that sits on the ground. I did use the back legs with a cross brace, but under the front T on the bottom, I added a piece with a cap, drilled a hole thru the pvc and used lawn mower wheels so I could easily move it from my basement to where I shoot.

I like the design. Could it be dry-fit together or does it need to be glued? I am concerned about how much space it would take up.
