An old buddy of mine from back in my volunteer fire department days sent me a message a few weeks back asking if I could build him a set of cornhole boards and how much I would charge him. I obviously told him I would give it a try and would only charge him for materials. He said they needed to be as light as possible since he was going to haul this in his RV. Started these things yesterday and it has been a project that falls in the “if it could go wrong, it did go wrong” category. Leave it to me to turn a relatively simple project into a beast. If it wasn’t not having a hole saw big enough, it was blossoms falling off the crepe myrtles into the paint. Ahh the joys of amarure woodworking…. Lol. Used 1×4’s of the frame and 3/8ths plywood for the top. Rattle can enamel over a coat of primer. Used scroll saw to cut out a replica of a certain team logo on a 1/4” piece of plywood then used it as a template for the final paint work. On a bright note, did finally get to use the Dremmel hole saw I bought sometime back.
