    There are probably quite a few of these floating around. I got the idea from one of these sites years ago and finally decided to make one this week. It's 1-1/4" PVC. I wish I had done 1" PVC with a 2" arrow tube but I had a bunch of this stuff lying around. It works pretty well. The paint is kinda iffy. It scratches easily. The pipe insulation made a huge difference with how the bow sits. It kept falling over until I put the insulation on. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Up for debate. :lol: as long as you don't have a bow on one side and the other person takes then bow from the opposite you will be fine. :poke:

    Nice work.

    I built one going on 4-5 years ago now. It stays outside all the time, even over winter.

    Old pic but even the duct tape is hanging in there lol.

    No the problem was we had like 3 bows on each side and it got tipsy. For single bows it works great which is what it was designed for! You needed a new stabilizer anyways what are you complaining about! Lol

    I made this one yrs ago, still using it today, what i like most is that I can take it down so I can use it when I travel. Never got around to painting it. The extra T's you see on the bottom front allow me to add stabilizing feet should i be on uneven ground bow holder4.jpg bow holder3.jpg bow holder1.jpg bow holder5.jpg bow holder2.jpg bow holder6.jpg
