I decided to make my own boards after I broke my flimsy foldable Eddie Bauer set from Target.
This is one of two sets I made. I bought one sheet of plywood from the BORG and got 4 pieces 23.75” x48” (standard size is supposed to be 24” – oh well…)
For the most part I followed a set of free instructions online but used pocket screws to attach base to top.
I used carriage bolts and wingnuts for the legs.
Do not buy those cheap vinyl decals – the big logo I put on is going to peel easily. The nice one at the bottom is a really good one and you can certainly tell the difference.
These things are heavy!
I used the separating hinges from Rockler on one side – they do not set back enough on the 2×4 to get a really solid bite – screw will tear out the side unless you are very gentle – these things are not meant to be handled lightly. On the other side I used two clasp hinges. I recommend simply using two sets of clasps on each of the vertical sides if you want to be able to carry them together. Mine are such that the holes are 180 degrees form each other when attached – put a handle on yours if you like. Lots of ways to customize.
Bought the bags from the American Cornhole Association.
