Part 1: Connecting pieces, drilling

04-24-2017 01:39 PM by Tony19 | 1 comment »

So a couple weeks ago I decided to make cornhole boards so I gathered all the materials and wood I would need, cut my pieces to size and here I am now. I just put together one board and I’m getting ready to start on the second. After I’m done attaching the ply wood I will connect my legs and drill the hole in the middle with a circular saw.

Part 2: Drilled holes, put legs in

05-04-2017 04:19 PM by Tony19 | 0 comments »

This week I drilled my holes using a router bit tool. I drilled holes for my legs also and when I tried to line them up and connect the legs I noticed the bolt was in there crooked. I ended up redrilling the holes and making them wider with a drill and then after that I could correct the mistake I made before. Right now I’m done with everything and the only thing I have left to do is sand one of my cornhole boards, sand down 2 of my legs because they don’t rotate corre...

Part 3: Painting, sanding, bolting

This week I started sanding both boards and making any finishing touches before I can start painting. Before I was planning on buying a decal for the boards but now I’m set on just painting them my college colors unless I decide to make my own decal in the computer room. I need to tighten up the bolts that hold the legs on so they are nice and secure and I will sand out any flaws I see on the boards. Next week I will start painting an orange and blue design on the boards.

Part 4: Painting/staining

This week, I started working on the design of the boards. I used golden oak stain for the middle and blue for the sides. I plan to put a brown or gold stripe down it as well, I haven’t ran into any troubles painting or staining. But I did realize I want to cover up some markings on the sides of my boards so I plan to use black paint on the sides after I’m done with the face. Other than that, I’ll finish painting, then throw on some poly on the stain on my mid...

Part 5: Finishing touches, decal

05-26-2017 02:10 PM by Tony19 | 0 comments »

On the one cornhole board I have to put one coat of black paint on the sides and the other one is all done but I have to wait for the 2nd coat of yellow to dry and remove the tape. I plan to put on those decals on my boards with the help of my woodshop teacher. After I’m done with those things I’ll take them home and eventually to Clarion with me in the fall!
