In our family we have to make our Christman presents. My wife and I decided to make these for two members of our family. One is a Clemson fan and the other a Caroilna fan. It took us about 15 hours to complete both setsThis was the first time my wife got realy involved in woodworking. I think she liked it. We have enjoyed ours since I made it last year. The cornhole boards were a big hit at the Christmas party this year. We had fun doing the project together and bonding during this busy time of year. Thanks for the fun and memories!

Okeechobee Cornholer

Boards turned out great! We used hinges to connect the legs to the underside of the boards, so they fold away for easy storage. We also attached a 3/4 inch dowel between the legs near the ends for extra stability. We drilled a 3/4 inch hole on the inside of each leg approximately 1/2 way through the leg, then inserted the dowel and held it in place with a screw through the leg into the end of the dowel. We then installed a clip on the underside of the boards to hold the dowel and legs when the legs are folded up. The clip is one of those spring-loaded clips that are made to hold brooms, mops, or tools, and are screwed or nailed to the wall. To make sure the legs did not collapse during use, we attached a small barrel bolt slide lock on the botton of the board, with a hole in one leg to slide the bolt into. This makes for a solid game board with no movement. I'll have to submit photos later.
 
We sewed our own Cornhole Bags from duck cloth, which we dyed since they did not have the colors we wanted. We learned a lesson, though. One set of bags was made with a natural color cloth, which we simply cut and sewed. The other sets were made from the same cloth, but we washed it first so that it would take the dye, then dyed it in nearly boiling hot dye bath, washed it, dried it, then cut and sewed the bags. This process shrunk the material somewhat. The unwashed bags have stayed firm, while the dyed bags have stretched during play -almost to the original size - and the corn has become loose, causing the bags to play differently from the other bags. In the future, if we dye bags, we will cut them and sew them before washing, dying, and drying. This will assure that the bags are all uniform size after a couple of rounds of play.
 
We had two Cornhole Sets going on New Years Eve and New years Day, and several of our family and friends played. My cousin got me started with this game at Thanksgiving. He made his set from different plans and the boards are not nearly as stable as the ones we just completed. We are planning to build another set this weekend as a birthday gift for my uncle, who has become an avid cornholer.
 
We are having a great time enjoying our cornhole boards. It is fun and competitive.
 
 
Now Everyone Wants To Play With My Cornhole Bags!

Cornhole-game.org is the best! I went online because I was in deperate need of some Cornhole Bags for the upcoming Labor day weekend. I was worried because it was Monday and I wanted to make sure I had the bags. (The last ones that I had from some other website exploded after just 4 games! My friends were all sad, there was corn everywhere, and we were bored) Thank God for Cornhole-game.org! I ordered them on Monday and to my surprise they showed up on Wednesday! They were high quality bags that all weighed perfectly. Now everyone calls me and says they want to play with my Cornhole Bags! We've played many times and the bags look mint. I'm recommending this site to everyone I know. Thanks Cornhole-game.org for making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

Using your instructions and dimensions, I built a set and am very satisfied. I found your instructions very clear, and although I modified 
the design somewhat, the Cornhole Boards came out just fine. 
 
My modification consisted of building the basic platform, then mounting two angled legs at the high end, set so as to pivot into the platform to allow for flat storage of the set. When pivoted to the rear, the legs provide the correct height and stability. During the construction of the Cornhole Sets, I failed to observe the old rule, measure twice and cut once. This cost a little delay for rework, but the end product is fine. I did purchase a set of Cornhole Bags from you for competition, but made a practice set using denim from old jeans. They work fine. I did appreciate the free instructions.
 
 
Our "passion" boards

by Rebekah

We'd been wanting to build our own set of Cornhole Boards since camping last year with friends and playing for the first time. I put in a search for directions and looked at several sites when we came upon yours. The details were much easier to follow and specific, and we're very happy with the results. My husband used a carriage bolt & wing nuts to make the legs collapsable and allow for easier storage and transport. The boards are a little fast due to adding a couple coats of polyurethane, but we've been having LOTS of fun with it! Thanks for your great Cornhole Dimensions, we'll highly recommend to our friends!!!
