Finally got around to finishing the corn hole board set for my Son-In-Law. After mostly finishing them with the normal lines and designs, decided to try something different, so I sanded everything off. I had a camo jacket in the shop which gave me the idea. I wanted to give it a ( kind of ), jungle 3-D type affect. It has two base coats of dark forest green to start off. I collected six different kinds, and sizes of plastic leaves, and three different colors to use. I used all colors and leaves in different colors and positions in six different layers to give some of them more depth, which made it have a 3-D type affect. It was then sealed with poly satin finish. The legs fold up/down and are locked in either position with a big wing nut on the underside. The under side has three coats of shellac for a finish. The bags are out of duck cloth and filled with corn to the proper weight. Thanks to my wife for the sewing part. Everything on this set-up is to regulation rules. Believe it or not they DO have official measurements and weights etc. I put heavy duty handles on one side of each to make moving easier. They are made of 1/2 ply and 2X4s that I trimmed on the table saw to give crisp edges.

Neat camo m’52! Does anyone hit the target or do you spend half the day looking for the bean bag. You could really have screwed your SIL by camoing the bags…

What would have been more of a joke was to omit the hole and say it’s comoflaged.
after a few brews. Mine are the ones in the dirt. LOL

After a few frothies, I’m the one in the dirt…
