TARGET STAND

This is not a fine woodworking project but it was a fun one.
I built this with my 14 year old son.
We used some pieces of 2”x6” and some plywood scraps we had left over.
I got a bunch of cardboard pallet covers that we use for target backers, we just rip them in half on the table saw and drop them in the slot.
Target size is 21”x45”.

Looks good and that slot makes it a pretty fancy system.

Great idea and nice project! What are you shooting? Air rifles, .22, or center fire?

Very nice stand. I have built ones similar to this in the past, the only difference is we used to cut down horse stall mats (3/8” thick rubber) to attach the targets to. They are more forgiving than cardboard and would last several thousand rounds (estimate).

I have built lots of target stands that were crap.
I think I like yours best.
Most stores, like Cabela’s charge too much.

Good design with the removable backers. Appliance boxes are a good source of cardboard, too.
Edit: I teach Hunter Education and three or four of these would be great for the live fire exercise. And easy to store. I’ll see how they could be make easy to store. Thanks for sharing and for the great photos. Good and safe shooting!
