DIY Goal?

Tried searching, but haven't found anything that helps me much.

I'm thinking of building my own goal, partly to save some money, and partly because I have more fun doing stuff like that myself than just sending off for something.

This would be for backyard shooting practice off of a shooting pad, ideally able to move around the yard somewhat easily.

I have a design that I drew up using 2x3 lumber, it's cheap and I think would hold up well if I prime and paint it properly. The plus side of this is that I can make it fold up (a couple well placed hinges and slide blots will allow the sides to fold in on the back).

I'm a little concerned that the wood might be too brittle.

Is it feasible to use black steel pipe? It seems to me that it might be pretty easy to put something together using standard threaded pipe from a home depot-type store, but no way to make it all one piece. Like there would have to be one "unfinished" part that ends in a "dead end" rather than a closed "circuit" of pipe.
