This is my first attempt on makeing a field target. Its not amazing and it looks bad but it actually works good with its simple design. I do understand that i used wood and its going to get demolished but it was just some thing to try out and share with you guys. :P

Brad's idea of the large steel washer on the front is a very good one. I used targets like this for years before I started purchasing all metal faced targets. I still have a few and they work great and when you just paint the washer into the character, it looks good too. Most of the hits would be on the washer and do no harm. For hits on the wood, I had a long, thin wood dowel that I would take small pieces of to hammer into the pellet hole and then cut it off flush with the surface. Kept mine going a long time.

Nice job !!!
I'll second the comment on the nice artwork - very cool.
I also like the way you have incorporated the holder for your four hold-down spikes right into the target base - excellent idea.
