A friend is having a party soon and asked me if I could make him a cornhole set. I told him sure but he has to do the painting. I whipped this up with some 2×4’s and 1/2” plywood. I assembled it with pocket screws for the frame and finish nails to hold the plywod top on. The foldable legs have a 4” x 3/8” as an axle to pivot on.
I didn’t want to use a 6” hole saw because I remember almost tearing my hand off with a 5” one before so I used a jigsaw to cut something resembling a circularish hole. Thankfully I just got an oscilating spindle sander that let me round out and smooth out the hole.
Has plywood quality recently taken a nose dive or is it just me, this stuff was terrible to work with, was full of voids and divots in its surface.
First time I used my Kreg Jr jig and I must say what a pleasure it was working with pocket screws for something as utilitarian as this.
