Whether as personal practice or as a compeditive game with friends and neighbors, you need an adequate target in order to measure your performance. The throwing targets on the market are often made out of materials you can get yourself at a hardware store and they are heavy to ship so it makes sense to put one together yourself. There are a many ways to build a wooden target but here is what we recommend.
The below guide will lay out the simple tools and materials needed to put together a functional target and bring the 'axe-house' feel to your own back yard.
YOU WILL NEED
Lay all six 48" precut 2x8 boards parallel to each other on your work surface.
Center and lay the sheeting on top of the 2x8 boards. Screw from the sheeting into the 2x8 boards using 4 screws per board (two on top and two on bottom). This insures the screw heads are on the back of the target to avoid contact with throwing accessories. (Damage may occur to throwing accessories if thrown into metal).
Lay out both 53" precut 2x4 boards vertically and two of the 48" precut 2x4 boards horizontally into a frame structure
Flip the sheeting witht the attached 2x8 boards over onto the frame and attach the frame with four screws (two on top and two on bottom).
Lay out both 53" precut 2x4 boards vertically and two of the 48" precut 2x4 boards horizontally into a frame Once all screws are in place, flip the structure over and attach the hinges and the remaining two 48" 2x4s. The bottom of the 2x4s should line up with the bottom of the throwing target and the hinges and top of the 2x4 being a little more than half way up the target.
Optional: You may also want to add a foot of chain on the legs of the target depending on what surfae you decide to use the target on.
Be safe and enjoy!

Axes might seem intimidating but they are arguibly one of the easier options in throwing sports. They have much larger edges that come into contact with the target than throwing knives. The trick is mastering the amount of rotation of the axe when you throw.
A common optoin for throwing sports are knives. they come in a variety of shapes but are all based around sticking the target with a single point.
You may have seen cards being thrown before, but not ones like these. Throwing cards offer an edge all the way around that will contact the target no matter how many times they rotate, a fun and novel optoin.
Cleavers work similarly to knives but offer just a bit more edge along one side as well as more weight. Some may find they prefer cleavers to knives.
If you prefer the throwing axe style over the other offerings but want to take it to the next level, the tomahawk style tactical axe offers a rounder more comfotable handle and deeper, elongated edges.
