I am building a set of Corn hole boards (basically bean bag toss) and the boxes are twisted. The overall size is 2’ X 4’ and 4” high. The two by fours make up the frame. The problem I am having is when I set the boards up one corner is 12” off the ground and the other corner is 12.5” of the ground. When I sight down the surface it looks twisted. Everything is straight to start out with and when it is all together it twists. is there a trick to twist it back so it basically is all on the same plane? Any help would be great. I am going nuts trying to figure out how to twist this box. See pics for more clarification.

i’m not sure how to fix your problem. I would guess the plywood is the problem. If they are for personal use i would just use them. 1/2 inch won’t be seen once they are painted and sitting in the yard.

Maybe you will get lucky and the moisture from the grass will suck up into the plywood and everything will bend right where you need it.

Have you tried to put corner blocks inside the corner’s inside the box?
