Okay, this/these are not fine woodworking, but, I wanted to share them really to let ya’ll know that if you’re thinking of making some, there are now wrap/skins you can get from 25-60 bux and maybe a bit more if you want really elaborate ones. After I started painting them, I found out about the skins, and went that route. There are many different ones and makers out there. I got the Cowboys from one person, and the Tarheels from another. I made these for my 2 son-in-laws, and my daughters. :) The Cowboys skins went on much better than the tarheels skins. I also watched a video on how to put these on, and it was very helpful. Of course, I did it that way, plus added some o my way in it. They are coated with 3 coats of Minwax Acrylic Poly to help seal the edges. OH, and I did find led lights you can add to them as well, so you play at night. They have different colors, red, blue, amber, and clear. I added the blue ones in each of these, I’ll post a seperate pic below.

Anyhoo, nothing special, but, they are special, because I know the guys n gals will appreciate them,
Thnx for checkin in. Good/bad/ugly…..........come on, and thank you.

Also, here is a link to a few pics of the circle jig:

Here is pic of the Tarheels boards and one of the Cowboys with the light in it. I only had one 9 volt battery handy. That’s what the lights run on, which it way cool. You don’t need any power cords if yer out there in the woods playin cornhole… Don’t take that the wrong way….

Thnx guys. Ken: they are 2×4. Made with a few 2×4’s and a half sheet of plywood. I use 3/4 so they’ll last many many years. The light is exactly 6” round, the same size as the hole, and mounts on the underside of the boards with 3 small screws and is powered by a 9 volt battery. Each one has it’s own battery of course.

Looks COOL, Roger!

Looks like a fun game!

You painted all of those? ... or just apply a skin? :)

Wow!! Those look like professional store bought boards and especially with the lights. I made some for the kids a few years back. Mine looked really country but yours are really uptown. Stay warm.

Those are perfect for a tournament Roger. I will be over soon to play the champ. Of course I hardly ever win. Nice work.

Roger, what a nice project. I like the skins, lights, and general design. These are great fun. Nice to know about the lights. Thanks for posting this project. I guess you are going to add bells and whistles next…or maybe an electronic score board.
