Not much fine woodworking here, but it was a fun project. Made it as a gift for my Brother in law. Just 4×4 chunks all cut off the same width, turned on end grain (so as to not dull the throwing knives to bad), then glued together in rows. The rows are then attached to a plywood backer board. The rows are not glued together so that if one row or a few blocks in that row get beat up to bad, just one row can be replaced instead of the whole block. I finished it off by cutting out the punisher skull stencil and spray painting that black right in the middle of the block as a target.

Looks good! End grain is perfect for this sport! Cool bulls eye!

Wow, welcome back Kevin, been a while. Nice gift, and i agree with woodshaver, the end grain makes a good target surface. Next?, dart boards?

Slices are 1.5 inches thick, mostly so I had some meat to run the screws into. Thanks Tom, I forgot how much I loved this site. Been busy. We moved last year to a new house with 64 acres. Been busy fixing things up. At the moment I don’t even have a woodshop but hoping to change that this summer. Good to be back. Dart boards, that’s a great idea, I hadn’t thought of that.

Cool target. I would need a much larger one if I were to throw the knife.

Hey Thanks Guys, I’m not the best knife thrower either, I should make one for myself to get some practice. We always threw them at an old fence post at my old house.
