    the 12$ target rack

    Hey all,
    Wanted to build another target rack to mount steel silhouette to and thought I'd share them with you.
    This literally cost me 12$ in lumber and decking screws
    What you will need,
    1. 2-3 8ft 2x4's
    2. Miter saw or circular saw
    3. Screws
    4. T-square
    5. Tape measure
    6. Brain.
    All I did was make a square box (whatever size you want is fine, just beware that the bigger you build it, you may need 45 degree supports for the rack), used the 2x4 as the leg, and use 1 foot sections to make the supports on the base. A lot of target racks online will go for 100+$ which is b.s. Pictures at bottom.

    Looks great.

    Here is one I was considering before I bought mine.



    I need an adjustable one, so I bought a Targetmeister.

    Made a plant stand similar to your lower section, but I used a 4x4 for the post. I think it would give you more stability in the wind.
