I needed to build some cornhole boxes for my annual Spring party this year. C’mon, you know what cornhole is. It’s that bean bag tossing game that is really popular right now. Anyway, this is the project that catapulted me into the woodworking hobby.
The boxes are made of 3/4” cabinet grade birch plywood. I added a 1/2” roundover to the edges of the top panel, the holes, and the handles.
Finishing: I made three passes of 100 grit, 220 grit and 400 grit with a coat of Varathane’s Dark Walnut after each sanding. These boxes are VERY smooth!
Tools used: Router, Jigsaw, Circular saw, Drill.
Joinery: None – about 30 counter sunk screws per box (plugs used to fill screw holes).
