So I’m a total newbie to this sight…thank all of you for your warm welcomes. Let me preface this project post by saying that I’ve always loved woodworking, but have ZERO training. Just in the last year or so, I’ve gotten bit by the bug REALLY BAD, so I want to learn as much as I possibly can about this wonderful hobby.

This is my personal set of cornhole boards. I thought it would be neat to build a set without having any screws or nails holding it together. The 3/4 inch thick board is set in a rabbit cut into the frame. The frame is 2×4 ripped to 3 inches (cornhole board regulation for front), mitered corners with dowels inserted at 45 degrees.

Our local university (ECU Pirates) school colors are Purple and Gold. Had Lowe’s mix the stain for me (closest I could get to school colors). IMHO, the coolest part of these boards is the dado cut for the 3 rows of beads on each side of the hole. I filled the cavity with Bar top to hold beads down (they float…big pain), the poured bar top over the entire surface.

I would love your comments and new ideas as I”m getting requests for cornhole boards.

Make sure you don’t leave those out in the sun too long… Bar top epoxy yellows and cracks quickly in the sun, especially down here in Florida. Interesting design though. Nice work

Oh, same thing with the bags… I store my cornhole bags in the garage freezer. Corn kernels tend to attract bugs and animals so at least store the bags inside and the boards in a garage or shed!

Yeah, good tip StephenSchaad. I actually wipe it down with sunscreen to block the UV and we use the synthetic bags that “slide” on one side and “stick” on the other…machine washable. They are a year old now and we store them in the garage (under workbench), so no discoloration…yet.
