Yep, I have one as well. I used a 2x12 on the top and bottom and ran threaded rod up both sides, makes it easy to tighten or replace the cardboard once is starts to get shot out. The rods stick down below the bottom and act as anchors to hold it up.

I get tons of free cardboard from work.

Mine is stored away in the shed behind the lawn furniture right now.

If I can get to it tomorrow I will take some pics.
