My wife’s son asked if i would build him a set of cornhole boards..What the heck is a cornhole board?
Well, i know now and gave blood,sweat, and fortunately lost no tears in making these..There’s always a couple of things you wish you could have changed, but most people,unless they know a little about woodworking, will never see.
I used ideas from several people that have made these over time…with one different idea of my own.
These were built with the top wrapped by the sides,not sitting on top of sides..Used pocket holes and glue to keep things cleaner looking. At the end opposite the hole and on the side opposite the rope handle, i used adjustable
metal chair glides for protection when you set game on end or side while swinging t-hinge mounted legs up for play, the board will suffer less damage. 3/4 inch maple and oak was used for tops..(what i had on hand). 1×4 poplar lumber for sides. Routed top side of board with roundover bit, and outside of legs. If i build more, i may not route the hole if i use the vinyl wraps i used on these…
The Cowboy’s set if for the other son…Their birthdays are both coming at the end of Sept.2014.
Due to weight, i chose not to fasten boards together with the suitcase latches, but chose to add rope handle to each board….With the weight of the bags (that can be stored under one of the boards) this made for a lot of total weight for one person to carry so the second handle allows you to carry on in each hand.
