Project Information

Was asked to make another set of Cornhole Boards for a guy in Missouri, ( I live in N.W. Kansas). He's a deer hunter so made a regulation sized set with a type of 3-D paint set-up. Used brown for a basecoat for fall colors. Then used various leaves and shed antlers in three camo colors in different layers to get the look. Bottom and inside was coated with Shellac only. The colors were top coated with three coats of Min-Wax Poly-Crylic, with light sanding in between. These are 24x48 inches, made out of 1/2 inch ply and 2x4s plained to get crisp edges. The legs fold up or down with bolts with wingnuts on the inside so a wrench, etc. wouldn't be needed.

Nicely done, great colors for the fall hunter. A great paint job, and finishing with the clear coats will add to the longevity of the boards. A wonderful idea about using the wing nuts, so no wrenches will be required. Well Done

I built a set last year and included a scoring system like a abacas and storage for the bags.

I like the unique pattern. Is it matte finish or semi gloss? the finish is nice, too.

Those are some tricked out boards Mel. I did the same with the wingnuts so no tools were needed. Good idea.

Still getting used to the new system, put my answer on the wrong person. So here I go again, the finish was semi-gloss.

This is a classic game that is fun for all ages. It is played on a wooden board with holes in it stumble guys . The object of the game is to fill the holes with as many corn as possible.

The boards look good but with the camouflage it must be hard to throw a score. Good job!
