Here is a set of bean bag (or tailgate toss) boards I recently completed for a friend. He saw the Chicago Cubs set (here) that I built as a Christmas gift last year and decided he just had to have one of his own.

The boards themselves are 24” x 36” (not the official ‘Cornhole’ specifications) and are constructed using 1” x 4” pine with a 1/2” MDO face that is inset so that it is flush with the frame. The artwork is all hand painted and, if you’re a Wisconsin fan, just what the doctor ordered.

Thanks for looking!

This is a nice job Dan. I especially like the artwork. I have made a cornhole set for one of my sons using 3/4 mdf and 2x material and painted it. But, as much as he would have enjoyed it, I would never even dream about painting the UK logo on the boards. This takes much more talent that I have.

Your artwork is superb. Thanks for sharing with us who are “artistically challenged” .
