C2>A Different Decal

A Different Decal

by David Wolfersberger 

(St. Louis, MO)

I mostly followed the cornhole board plans. I used 1/2" cabinet grade Birch plywood for the top and 2x4's for the frame. Fold up legs were installed rather than the fixed legs. Strap hinges were used and I added a small deadbolt to keep the legs in place when they are folded down. The hole was cut with a 6" hole saw on a 1/2" drive electric drill. I also added a sash handle on one side to help carry the board.

The cornhole game board was finished with primer, two coats of finish paint, and several coats of exterior satin varnish. The decal was applied after the final finish coat of paint but before the varnish. So the decal also had all of the coats of varnish.

The decal is our family coat of arms. And yes, it is a real coat of arms, not one purchased from some on-line search site. Our family has been documented back to the early 1400's in Switzerland, with some documentation indicating a lineage back to the 1200's. The name is Wolfensberger in Switzerland, with plenty of relatives still there. When my ancestor came to the US in 1730, the name had become Wolfersberger. 

The decal was made by Mike Reeves at http://www.reevesgrafx.com/ from a photo I sent him.
