Title: Slinging Target Boards
Post by stoneslinging on May 7th, 2023 at 8:44pm
Hi there everyone,

I often see the wooden boards with metal discs used for general slinging and also competitions, and I am thinking of making one for myself.

How would one go about making one of these 'diana' boards?

Here's Channing's video which covers things well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpa-S7CxXic. Basically what Blindsquirrel is describing.

If you don't want to worry about cutting metal for the diana plate, just jump on Amazon and get a heavy duty 20 inch pizza pan. It's already the correct size. That's what I've been using for a while. It's dented up quite a bit, but still working fine. Because a pizza pan won't hold up as well as a thicker plate, I have three connection points. I have a video where I replace the board if you want to see it. It's here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ije7S3e6jF4.

I use a jury-rigged one with a folded-over duct tape frame and a cardboard diana, and it works well when tied onto a baseball backstop at a local park. I'll attach a photo of it soon.

Turns out I don't have a picture of it on a backstop. Here it is laid out on the patio:

Looks so simple yet functional, Eino!

Will definitely have to try this, as I am unable to build one out of wood at the moment.

Thanks for the suggestion!

20 bicycle inner tube. Blown up . Pretty cheap Diana for easy setup.

Also a design I'll definitely try out (as I have bicycle tubes lying around)

Thank you Mersa!
