Spent a day in the shop with my son building these 2 sets of Bag Toss Boards.(we call em Corn Hole Boards in KY) Was a great way to spend over Fathers Day weekend.
My son and his wife are going to paint them up. I’ll try & get a pic when finished.

Roger, It looks like you and your son had quite a bit of fun. These boards are a nice relaxing build and also fun to use as well. Now the bags are another issue altogether. Congratulations on getting to spend some quality time in the shop with your son. I am sure he had as much fun as you did.

I assume that your son and his wife have plenty of blue and white paint for the boards. After all we would not want them to be painted Cardinal red now would we. :)

Those are a lot of fun.

I know you have to keep your mind on the job with those whiskers. You got me beat, but not by a lot. I did pass you in the beer belly event.

What a pair of handsome guys.
Cool bag toss boards, never heard of that before, we used to throw horse shoes and roll eggs at easter, but throw bags I never heard of.
Looks like a wonderful time you had, and I am sure it will be fun also after.
Best thoughts,

Thanks for posting the pictures of you and your son. It is so nice to get to know our fellow LJ’s a little better with stuff like this.

What a great way to spend Father’s Day! He sure looks like he had a great time too. I bet every time he sees those games, he will have a wonderful memory of you two working on them together.

I will be looking forward to seeing the pictures of them painted too. Games like that are really fun!

Take care, Sheila :)

Hey, Roger! This is my project for today. My daughter’s been after me to build her a set. Any advice on the hole cut out process?I was just going to use pilot holes/ jig saw and clean up w/. oscillating spindle sander…
Cool boards!

Patrice: I just bored a 1/2” hole with a spade bit, then used my jigsaw to cut the circle out. then just eased the edge just a little with 100grit sandpaper. nothin fancy. :)

Patrice, I made two pair of them with my LJ buddy, Bladebender. She designed the handles so we could easily carry a pair of them. We did the same as Roger, pilot hole and then around with a jig saw. I used a 5/32” round over bit in the router to smooth out the edges so as not to tear the bags. We taped them off and painted them red and white and she gave hers to the neighbor kids and mine went to the grandkids. You can get all kinds of bags for them at the flea market in Shipshewana , Indiana and probably a lot of other places.
