African mahogany and poplar corn hole boards. Also made matching scoreboard/beverage holder set to go with these boards. Floor surface of boards is made of individual strips 1/4” thick X 1” wide poplar nailed to a piece of 7/16” OSB substrate to make it look like a real hardwood floor. Got carried away on this build and DID NOT make any money but it was for a good friend and they were fun to build.

Not a Wolfpack fan, but those are pretty sweet.

Great looking corn hole boards. I have drawn up plans to make similar looking ones with the look of a wooden floor, just haven’t gotten around to it as i was not looking forward to joining that many small pieces. Had not thought about joining them to a substrate. Have you tried them out? Do the bags react the same on these vs a board with a standard top?

I never threw a bag at them. The day I finished them the guy I made them for came and got them. I’m sure the bounce would be less on them than it would be on a regulation top, which is 1/2” thick. I made sets for each of my sons with their respective college logos on them and used 3/4” MDF to make the tops. They have less bounce than the ones I’ve made that have 1/2” thick tops. The official corn hole rules specify 1/2” maximum thickness for the top which was something I didn’t know till after I’d made several sets using 3/4” material. It doesn’t really matter unless you would take them to use in a sanctioned corn hole tournament. I turned a flange/collar on the lathe to create the hole on these. It covered up the edge of the OSB and the end grain of the poplar boards. If you zoom in on the picture you can see it.
