Looks good, but what’s a cornhole board?

Basically a bean(corn)-bag toss on a slope. It is highly addictive and great fun at a picnic. A softball team I played on used to have backyard tournaments. I think it honestly helps develop your pitching technique for slow-pitch. LOL.

Really nice boards df123. I bet the weight of the stock provides a nice “thump” when you toss.

Here is a link to rules for the curious.

Here’s what Wikipedia has to say: Cornhole game)

hi gary, lol “cornhole ” its not as gay as it sounds its a bean bag toss game that originated in cin ohio by a couple of college kids that were bored and couldn’t set up a horse shoe pit so they built a game called corn hole.. u can google it and find plans and also look up american cornhole association for rules and tournament’sit is a lot of family fun and u can play in grass , gravel, pavement any where u have the rules are very close to horseshoes … its became a very popular sport in the midwest and lots of indoor and outdoor tournament play … thanks for asking ..... dennis

thanks jeff, i have made about 30 sets and sell them for 125.00 a set they seem to sell before i get them made … this is the best materials i could find to use and are awesome i only built them to strick asa specs ....( i spent 1.400.00 on the v-groove cutter ) and i have a source for the best duck cloth bags anywhere !! the v- groove router is a machine made to cut counter tops it cuts from the undersde in a v and the sides fold over … it makes the grain wrap around it awesome ... sincerely dennis

I think you could charge more. I have seen them sell $150 to $200 and not as nice as yours.

Dennis, those are some great looking boards. We get into some serious corn hole games when I go up to Cincinnati and visit the kids, my son has a set in his yard and there is as much trash talking and beer drinking going on with that game than any softball game you can get into. What do you use to prop them up?

Anything to keep the kids active Dennis. I like the idea, it might even improve the Aussie cricketers game, in a bit of a slump at the moment.

Great looking boards. What angle is the board set at, and how far apart?

hi rikkor , u place them 27 feet apart from the front edge to the front edge.. check out the size and rules on my other pics posted in my projects list that i posted there or u can go to american cornhole association for official size and rules ... it is a lot of fun to build and play .. my 10 yr old son likes to help me in the shop with them ….. i got a lil shop time in last night and made a fishing rod holder out of cherry getting ready for spring !!! i really like to do simple useful day or weekend projects as i drive a truck and only home on the weekends ( burglars beware mom and son have guns and trained to shoot then ask questions )

Hi,
I really like the look of this cornhole board, with the wrap around wood grain. When you say you used a v-groove router to acheive the wrap around look, could you explain that a little bit(newbie woodworker).
Also, what stain did you use? It looks amazing.

Thanks!

James
