I built this today for shooting my new wicked ridge warrior crossbow. By no means original to me.
2 10 ft, 2" schedule 40 pvc cut into 4 2ft pcs, 2- 3.5ft pieces for uprights and 1- 3ft piece for crossbar. Two T's and 2 elbows plus hdwe., I think it was around $37.00 total. Works great, holds target well with no sag and you can leave the crossbar unglued for easy takedown, in fact I left mine all unglued and it was no problem. In case you are wondering the hardware in the center of the crossbar is for when I get my Rinehart 18-1 target for broadheads.

It's ok, no passthroughs and none buried to the fletching, I shot about 15 to 20 times today, so it hasn't been enough time to really say how it will hold up. This target is for field points only..

Going to build this tonight! I was shooting my hurricane bag and my first two arrows went through and lodged in my shed.
Was the bag hanging? That can make a difference in penetration..

It wasn't hanging, but it is now!!! I think I'm gonna cement some of the joints together, however, as my bag is now kind of damp and heavy. Shouldn't leave it out in the rain, I guess.

I built mine today, I glued all the joints except the top vertical connections, makes it easy to store/transport by simply tapping off the horizontal pipe & 90's.
Thanks for sharing.

I did the exact same gluing setup. everything lays flat for transport in the truck, If I decide to ever move it...

That's the beauty of it, cheap, portable, and long lasting, as long as you don't leave it out in the cold of winter.

Excellent job springfreak. I've been thinking of how to make one and you figured it out for me. Thanks for taking the time to share pictures & dimensions.
