Corn Hole Boards

My wife thought it would be a great idea that "I" build corn hole boards for all of our adult married children for Christmas. As a smart husband I did just that, and well, built one for us while I was at it.

Very nicely done!  I may steal some of your ideas when I built a set for our family picnic. I especially like the adjustable legs with the integrated bubble level.

Being avid corn hole player and having built a few sets of boards, I must say I can see a lot of thought and planning went into these boards. These are very well built and I'm sure are very sturdy. Congratulations on a very nice set of boards. I hope you don't mind but I think my next set will include some of your ideas. Thanks for sharing and again these are very nice boards.

No it was very secure the latches are there just to hold the boards together, the cross bracing keeps from sliding up and down, they don't even rattle once they are latched. however with the bags they do carry some weight, nothing I would have my wife try to carry. I haven't weighed them yet but I would guess in the 45-50 lb area.

I did have one question. I like your use of the cross braces of the legs to provide the 'fit' for the nesting. With the use of catches at either end - did this provide a secure solution or was some further internal bracing needed?

Super nice set of board - agree with the previous comments that they the nicest boards I've seen. I built a 2x4 set, and have just completed an oak set using 1x3s. A nesting tailgate set is the next project and I'll certainly use some of your great ideas! Thanks for sharing the pics

Yea the materials not counting the decals just as depicted inn the photos is 183.00. If I eliminate the adjustable legs and convert to poplar it drops to 94.00. 

So yea to sell them, it's in the 280.00 range. However, when I built the first one I created jigs for every part to eliminate the setup time for the router, miter saw and table saw. I can have all pieces for 1 board machined and ready for sanding in about 4 hours.

Of course they won't sell as fast as the 99$ boards, however when you pull these boards out at the tailgate you will draw attention and they play awesome, I placed the support cross bracing where the bags will usually land, so they are very solid sounding and will last for years.

Very nice job. As someone who's built alot of these, these are some of the nicest I've seen. Seems like they would be very expensive to sell due to the amount of time put into it.

The top is Birch plywood, I used two coats of sanding sealer  prior to applying the decals, then 7-8 coats of Minwax water based gloss poly. You'll need to sand between coats on the sanding sealer, then lightly sand with 400-600 grit between the first couple of coats of the poly after that it's just like applying coats of glass. I used a Fuji HVLP Mini-Mite 3 for all of the spraying. 

Actually the real sliding occurs when the bags start to seep the corn dust, the more you play the better the bags work!

Hope this helps.

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.

Then I installed it.. perfect fit, leaves just enough room to adjust the setting screw on my K4.

Then the real test, hook…
