A regulation target is 36 inches in diameter.   So I need a 36 inch cookie, or 4 cookies that are at least 25 inches in diameter so I can square two sides and fit them together like a clover leaf to give enough space for a 36 inch ring.  I can use even smaller cookies, but it's a lot more work to square them on 4 sides and glue them up.   
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

You could use 2x4 stacked with the ends out for the target!

Anyone coming thru on the I 70 or the Turnpike could grab one here for him. Darn shame, got LOTS of bigguns here. You could pick want you want.

Well I might have found something.  I've looked for a long time for a sawyer nearby, and the only one I've found at all is a stationary band mill about 35-40 minutes away down the highway.  I'd been trying to get a hold of him and finally did last night.  He said that he's actually thrown the ax a bit himself.  He recommended that I use softwood and that it would hold up pretty well.  He suggested cottonwood, which get plenty big around here and are not used for much of anything else.  He said he also did have oak that big, but didn't think it would work as well.  He told me to come by Sunday.  He didn't mention money so I wasn't going to ask.  Kinda sounded like it wasn't a big deal and he'd fix me up.  I've been wanting to see what he has for a mill and wood too.  I'll take a pic on Sunday and show what I found.
