Hi,

I would like to put LED strip lights on a pair of corn hole boards that I’m building. I’m not seeing what I’m looking for on-line. I was looking to do a rabbit edge along the edges as well as the 6” circle and then pour a clear resin on top of the SED strip flush to the rest of the board. If anyone las added lights to their boards, what have you added, and where did you get the lights from? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Here’s something from Amazon that may work. It’s only 2 meters long so you’d probably need 2 for each board but it looks like it comes with a 4 x AA battery pack or you could power it from USB Li battery pack.

The strip has adhesive on the back so would be easy to position it right. Personally I’d cover it with something translucent instead of clear, like a frosted plexi or something because the tape itself isn’t very attractive. If you do make it post it as a project, sounds cool to me!

i dont think id resin any lights into a set of cornhole boards. it would really suck if and when they need to be replaced.

ive used these for the board

put the hole light on the bootm and leds along the sides. works great and no problems in 3 years.

The Third Coast Craftsman channel on youtube has a video doing the very thing you are asking about.
