Made this corn hole game for a neighbor AFTER he say me making one for a friend. Kinda funny how someone doesn’t know they want something until they see it?! Go figure. No problem though because I enjoy making things and pleasing friends / neighbors.

Corn hole games seem to be a big this her in NC.

I have seen these before, but the ones I have seen didn’t hook together for easy carrying. How do the bottom of yours come together? Care to share the dimensions of yours? These look great, by the way.

I thought so as well until I loaded the beanbags in them. There is a partition inside that keeps the bean bags stored. MAN, DOES IT GET HEAVY IN A HURRY!!!

Thanks for the responses guys. It is very rewarding to get “Kudo’s from fellow Woodworkers.

I make these from one sheet of 3/4” plywood. A bit heavy but very stable. All according to the National Corn Hole Association. Can you believe there is a national organization for this and that there are actual specifications!!!

The dimensions are 2’ x 4’ and the sides are 4”. I pocket screw then to the top. I use 4 dowels glued into one frame that line up with holes on the other. So far, this system has worked well but always a better way I suppose.

The handle is one that is normally used for a fence. Needed to be heavy and allow your hand to fit comfortably. As for the latches,(2), I used chest latches. Maybe next one try those type of latches that are used on table leafs that pull them together. . . Again, always a better way.

Have your say...
