How to Make Cornhole Boards

Updated on March 3, 2016

Although cornhole boards seem easy to do by merely looking at it, but knowing basic instructions on how to make cornhole boards is still very useful. The fruit of learning to make one’s own cornhole board is no less than feeling fulfilled.

The two major things to do in its construction are cutting the wood and assembling the board. This may sound so simple for those who already have experience on how to make cornhole boards.

For cutting, one has to be careful in marking the design on a piece of plywood to estimate the cuts needed as in the above picture. Sketch out 4 ft by 2 ft rectangles. Next set boundaries on the four slanted surfaces which should be 9 inches in height on one edge and four inches tall on the other side; also it should be four feet in width. To finish with the marking of the design, another two rectangles that are 2 ft in length and 1 ft in width must be drawn.

After markings have been done on the pieces of plywood as to which of them should be “sides”, “platform” and “backs”, one may now proceed to cutting out all the sheets and disconnect them into each cornhole boards. Every board should have a platform, two edges and one flipside.

Create six 1 ½ ft long portions and four six-inch sections of 2x2; cut them to length with a rounded saw. These will serve as braces in attaching one piece of plywood to another simultaneously.

Knowing how to make cornhole boards is simpler if they are assembled properly; this is the second major step. Begin with the platform in a reclining position on the ground even. Let one of the angled part stand to make its four foot side it come in contact with one of the two 4 ft parts of the platform.

Place one of the longer 2x2 supports at the panel within ridge and bolt it in from the outer side piece to unite the side to the platform. After that, let the platform stand and fasten into the brace from the external of the platform. Do this again to put together the other side.

Attach the back to the two ft end of the platform that has the taller piece of the part to it. The result must be a three-sided box underside the platform. Ensure firmness to the box by flicking it over and fastening a minor support within of the joint involving the back piece and each side. The rear piece ought to end up with an extended support clutching it to the platform as well as a little one putting together it to all angled sides.

Instructions on positioning the location for the target hole and applying power sander to achieve a smooth finish of the cornhole boards are also available on the web.
