I have recently started making cornhole boards for my friends. The set pictured was the 1st set that I made for myself (a Jayhawk Fan for life). I used standard 2×4’s for the frame (24”x48”), and 24”x48” -1/2” Birch plywood for the deck. I used Birch for the smooth suface, and the way it looks underneath the water-based Poly-Crylic. I also used water based Red and Blue paints from Home depots selection of official Team Colors paint lines. The more sets that I make, I find out that using les of the paint, and leaving the natural color of the Birch ply-wood, looks a whole lot better. I am also trying to engineer a set that is lighter, portable and less expensive to make. I need a better system to get the folding legs assembled, to get the official 12” hieght on the rear of the boards. Next board will be a Tail-Gating version with a 1”x4” frame with the demensions being 24”x36”. Have a question for all of you….Can you sray Poly-Cryic through a HVLP air spay gun? Some people say “yes” and others say its too thick, and you arent supposed to thin it out…Thanks for lookin, will be posting more of my boards at a later date….
