So my good friend approached me and requested a set of Corn Hole boards for a reunion he had planned. He said I have freedom to do anything I have to. So my buddy is a retired Gunnery Sergeant and his reunion was with a particular group of guys he had served with. So the planning of the theme was pretty easy. I did the decals and artwork for them myself as well.
First set of Corn Hole Boards. Hope you enjoy.

Thank you.
I have my own business doing screen printing and vinyl decals on the side of my regular job.

Nice job, my son-in-law has been wanting me to make him a set. His side of the family is big into this game. My side never heard of it until their wedding reception.

Thank you.
They fairly easy to do. But you can make it complicated when you go to dress them up. If you need any help, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need anything.

Great job. The boards themselves aren’t that hard, but your artwork is something to be very proud of, and there is a likelihood you will be asked for more sets from others in your friends group.

How did you handle the holes? That is the hardest part to get perfect.

Thanks for posting.

Thank you. The art work can as simple or as complicated as you make it out to be.
The hole in these were done with a jig saw, then Dremel to even out the saw in perfections. I have recently purchased the 6 inch hole saw for my drill, but make sure you get the Chuck with it, I did not have to buy that separately.

Hang onto your behind when you fire up that 6” hole saw the first time. Talk about an immense amount of?? Push back is what I call it, like trying to stop a BIG tractors flywheel by wrapping yer arms around it. I’m a really big Man, and generally it takes a lot of force to push me off something. First time that big hole saw caught, it about threw me off. BUT all that panic out of the way, for future boards you’ll wonder why you didn’t start with it. You might wanna check. On mine I bought a Milwaukee as I already had a large set of theirs, and I figured the Mandrel would swap. For the 6” saw it took a Mandrel that almost cost what the saw did, and it wasn’t a joke thing, no sirree. It was huge compared to the Mandrel with the “Large” set. I am not sure if it starts at 1/2” but goes to 4” and the Mandrel is a toy next to the one for the 6”
