I’ve always wanted to make an end grain target and I finally made one using a design I saw on a Russian No-Spin YouTube channel.http://youtu.be/CtWlJAuSA78
Since I used 4 x 4 blocks instead of what looks like 6 x 6 blocks, my target got demolished after some heavy throwing. So I thought the missing ingredient was wood glue and so far my wood glued target is doing well!
I was told later on by a fellow Russian knife thrower that I had to use either larger blocks or a backboard. The backboard is a better solution than wood glue, because then you can easily switch out the used up blocks. D'oh!
Here are the knives I used in this video:
