Quick Change Knife Throwing Target

That's how the frame of Jean's knife throwing target looks like. Click for a larger image. Jean wanted to have a target for his knife throwing practice where he could change and replace the target wood quickly and easily. The other knife throwing targets he tried out did not satisfy him. So he designed a target of his own, built it, and then made detailed construction blueprints - which are published on this page, so you can build the target yourself.

Advantages:
  • The frame is very light (less than 10 kg), and allows for a target surface of 95 x 66 cm. The sticks are going to go into three construction timber planks, which are mounted in the frame in a vertical position. You can do some 20 000 throws before you have to replace them.
  • Changing the planks takes two minutes and requires no tools at all: Just quickly remove the traversal planks and turn the handles that usually press the planks into a jointless surface.
  • Because of the protective board, the target front shows no metal parts or screws that could be hit by a knife.
  • All building materials needed are sourceable from a do-it-yourself home improvement store for a total of less than 50€.
Constraint:
  • Only suitable for throwers that do not miss too often. A stray axe hitting the frame or the retainer board could well splinter them.

The dimensions of the elements are plotted on blueprint sheet 1. On sheet 2 you see the outline details for the small joining parts. Find the list of parts on sheet 3. It also shows how the numbered parts fit together.
Now the planks are tightly mounted using the screw handles. Just draw a target onto the surface and have fun throwing!
