 FD Cornhole boards

Hello,
 
First off I would like to say THANKS for the building plans. I have built 2 Cornhole Sets and the whole family is hooked on this game. We even have to move the set under the vapor light to either finish a game or keep playing. The set that I am sending today is my second set. My first is similar but where the blue is it's red and there is no axe and jaws on the other (I like this set better..lol). I made collapsable legs for easy carry and storage. It's nothing spectacular but it's good for us...lol.
 
Its all done in paint. I layered the paint using contact paper for the designs. It has actually been really fun because I take them to the Fire House on drill nights and we either do our training or meeting(depending on the night) and then we throw bags. We have actually gotten more people to come to training to get together afterwards..lol
 
Thanks again for the plans and a chance to show off the boards :)

I am by no means a carpenter and with your plans, I was able to build these myself. I was informed by my husband that I used the wrong kind of saw to cut lines (made it harder on myself!!). They still turned out great for my first Cornhole Set. I now have friends wanting me to make some for them. Your plans were great!! Much appreciated.

A buddy of mine named Jason introduced me to this great Cornhole game late last year. I decided I had to build a set of these for myself and one for my Dad. My dad lives at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. We normally play washers when we go down to visit him. Due to the fact that he has very little level ground in his yard to play, we have to setup the game next to the sea wall. Well, a funny bounce and someone has to go into the lake after a washer. That is what made me think this would be a great Christmas gift for him.
 
I requested the plans from your website to build these shortly before Christmas last year. I didn't have time to complete them before the holiday so I gave him a few photos and let him know that I was building them and he would have them soon.
 
I followed the cornhole plans to the letter and everything worked out great. I built two sets with legs that fold up. I thought this was better for both me and him for storage purposes. I did not do any fancy decorating. They are painted white and finsihed off with three coats of clear coat. 
 
This past weekend was my first opportunity to break them out and play with friends. I took them to a barbecue at a friends house. I have not ordered Cornhole Bags yet so I asked my buddy Jason to bring his. Somehow he and I ended up on the same team. We won every game, but more importantly everyone there really enjoyed the game. They either asked where to get the plans or asked me to build a set for them. I gave your website information to those who wanted it and may have found a small side business as well.
 
I just want to say thanks for providing the info on how to build the Cornhole Game Boards. My friends and I really enjoyed ourselves and I am looking forward to playing this game for a long time to come.

Corn Holes plans are great

I used your Cornhole Dimensions and added some changes of my own.
 
- I attached the extra piece of plywood at the bottom back of the frame to create a nice storage bin for the Cornhole Bags and other accessories.
- I added a scoreboard to the hinged rear support leg for easy score keeping.
 
- I also added a couple of eye bolts at the bottom of each hinged support leg. When the boards are in place I slip an 8" spike through the eye bolt and into the ground. This stops the boards from moving during game play.
 
- I bought a chalk line for under $5 and replaced the cotton string with carpenters line, and the screws with standoffs. The case is attached to the side of one Board, by sliding the standoffs into holes on the board frame. When the string is fully unwound the other end slips into a slot in the other boards frame. When all the slack is taken up the boards are located at 27' from end to end. I added a mark on the string to allow you to set the distance at 24' as well. Of course the string is removed during game play.
 
I have attached some pics for your review.
 
Thanks again for the plans. I often get requests to bring my Cornhole boards along to family functions. It is a hit with everyone.

Cornhole boards
 
I'm a huge Washington Redskins fan so of course I had to make my boards Burgundy and Gold along with ordering the Cornhole Bags from you close to the same colors. 
 
I put quite a bit of time into making these but with your instructions it was easy to build. They turned out really good and I have all my family and friends hooked on the game. One of my friends already made a set and I recently told my boss about the 
game, he's never even played before, and he's going to make a set this weekend just because it sounds fun he said. 
 
I enjoy playing horseshoes but 
Cornhole is much more fun to play and even little kids can play. I want to thank you for the instructions as well as the bags and I wish you much success in your business. Thanks again!!!
