After building some regulation size Cornhole boards and they were a big hit with my friends and family I decided to build a scoreboard… My design is very similar that you see online on the likes of Pinterest ..the scoreboard consists of the following 2×4x1/2” thick sanded plywood ( ripped lengthways to give 2 panels with dimensions of 12” x 48” Materials::- 2” acrylic numbers ( 3 packs):- (2) pieces of 12” brass chain.:- (2) 2.5” brass h...

Part 2: The Finger Holes and Leg Design

I thought this would be a nice touch in drilling 3 holes with an 1 3/8” forstner bit to give slots to carry the scoreboard, I centered the holes in the middle of the board,4” in from the left side and 2” down from the top. ( see below) The defined the legs.. I measured in 2” from each side of the bottom of the board and 3” up creating the radius and then I just cut the semi circle out, I clamped both boards together and did the cuts simultaneously… I...

Part 5: Back Board Paint & Applying Numbers

I basically just painted a border ( using my trusty frog tape, this stuff is awesome) in black around the perimeter of the back board and I will be hanging a beer holder painted green as well, when that was finished I stuck my numbers on the front and when this was finished a put a coat of polyurethane on both boards. Next I’ll be mounting the beer holder, attach the hinges and attaching the 2 lengths of chain to each side to keep the scoreboard upright..
