It was way past time to redesign my knife throwing target stand.
Throwing Target Stand
I finally decided to upgrade the design of my throwing target. The old design used 2×6’s for the target, tipped over too easily and needed to be replaced at least once per year.
You can see the abuse that one day of throwing does to this target. One good season of practice and the throwing knives reduced this target was a pile of toothpicks!
Cold Steel throwing knives shown in roll up case:
- Sure Flight – 12 inch
- Mini Flight – 10 inch
- True Flights – 12 inch and paracord wrapped handle (can be used as a knife)
The New Throwing Target Stand
The new throwing target stand uses log rounds for the target. It also features adjustable angle and incline so I can lean it back if I have a huge round (which I do in the pictures below).

You should be able to reproduce or improve on my design from the photos.
