Building these popular DIY cornhole boards was a lot of fun and it only took few hours to make. Staining and painting probably took longer than building it. Our kids love playing it, although they don’t necessarily follow the rules and just make up their own.

Most of the cornhole set you buy on Amazon are made from ½” plywood. I used ¾” plywood to make it sturdier and so that bags would not bounce up when hitting the board. Also, knowing my 8 year old son, after he gets bored playing cornhole, he’ll make a bike ramp out of it. So in my case, the boards need to withstand the bikes as well.

Also, if anyone is interested in scoreboard for the game, I have free plans available too.

Looks good.
I too enjoy playing but I have a hard time lading the bags on the board. They keep falling through that darn hole in the middle.
