It really kills me to see plywood cornhole boards. I don’t think I could bring myself to making one. I like to experiment and use what I have. I already posted an oak version that you can find in my projects. I gave that set to the in-laws and wanted one for myself. I got a load of used old-growth pine flooring for free on craigslist and have been putting it to use in many projects around the home, including a cook top hood (also in my projects) and even on the ceiling in an extension off the kitchen. These boards were super easy to build they play nicely. I find that solid stock with cross members underneath work well and are reasonably lightweight. The solid footer on this version works great, holding the front at a good height. The legs have a cross member and are strong. I like the front leg mount and stop design, which I used in both sets that I’ve built. Simple and strong. I use all stainless and measure/mark them out to get a uniform appearance. No hardware is visible from the top, of course.
