Corn Hole Boards – Really !!

I found out from my older daughter that number one grandson wanted Corn Hole Boards.   Someone had said they would make him some but had failed. Granddad into action.  A fun wood working project.

I did find out from 2nd daughter, a wedding planner,  that the Corn Hole Game is BIG at weddings.   You can get very fancy decorated boards from $150 to $200+ for a set.  Really !!

Found red, white and blue flag pattern bean bags at Dicks Sporting goods.  So the colors were decided.

First you have to find out dimensions.  This is a great starting point Corn Hole How To.

So a trip to home depot last Thursday.    Sandeply 1/2″ plywood,  4 2x6x8′ , some 3/8″ bolts and 4 cans of Rustoleum red, white and blue spray. Back to the shop.

Cut 2×6 to rough lengths.  Joint one side.  Rip to 3 1/4″ ( it just looked good ).  Make sure all the pieces are flat.  If not joint the sides flat. Cut to final lengths.   Drill for pocket hole screws and assemble.  Then spend 3  days spray painting.  Hole in the top and figure out the legs and you are done.

Deliver to grandson.  Have FUN.   Very happy times

    This is a comment from me……

    A friend asked me for clarification on the plans… So here are some notes about what I really did and what you can do….

    There are a lot of plans out there… The rough version is 2×4 ft top and 2×4’s for the “frame” under the boards.

    So my version… In my area of the country, 2×6 construction is very clear pine. NOT SYP. So I made the frame from the 2×6 ripped to 1 1/2″ x 3″. Jointed and squared. I only worried about two sides being square. That would be the inside edge and the top side of the frame. I used Kreg Pocket holes to connect the corner joints.

    If you cheat just a little then use a sheet of decent plywood 1/2″ and make the tops 1/4″ – 3/8″ shy of 2×4 ft. This way you can get 4 tops out of one 4×8 sheet of plywood.

    I over sized the tops by 1/4″. Made frame undersized appropriately. So when I attached the tops to the frame I could use a router with follower bit to make the tops flush with the sides.

    So that is the tricky part. There is a blog and pictures on my website…. ( I think ). I will post another respose with the link. This is the part not really in my writeup.

    Good post right here. One thing I would like to say is that most professional fields consider the Bachelor Degree like thejust like the entry level requirement for an online diploma. While Associate Diplomas are a great way to get started, completing your Bachelors starts up many entrances to various jobs, there are numerous internet Bachelor Course Programs available via institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions offer Online variants of their qualifications but often for a drastically higher price than the corporations that specialize in online diploma programs.
