Pretty simple project: Kerfed plywood cornhole boards
« on: June 21, 2019, 10:08 AM »
Hi all,

I just bought a track saw and decided to do a quick plywood project to get to know it. For those of you who don't know, cornhole is a lawn game that involves throwing bean or corn filled bags at boards with a hole in them. The standard boards are pretty boxy and heavy so I did a redesign. Take a look and let me know what you think! Also looking for feedback on the build plans.

They look great and just in time I might add.

I was going to look for plans today.

Want to make a set for when the kids visit over the Summer.

Thanks for posting.

Very nice take!  Funny you posted this.  My adult aged daughter was just asking me if I could help her make some. 
PS What are the dimensions including hole size and placement?

Did you calculate how much wood needed to be removed to make the bend or just wing it?

Thank you Jim! I posted a link that has the technical drawing. The hole size is 6 inches.

Did you calculate how much wood needed to be removed to make the bend or just wing it?

I used a test piece and did the math backwards to determine angle and bend radius. There is also an online calculator that I found out about after I made them (of course!).

Thank you! Hopefully the plans help out! Not sure if they are more simple than a standard build.

Nicely done, had a lot of fun one night when were visiting friends across the pond. We had too much beer, too much bbq and a lot of fun with the cornhole, even though I had double vision!  [big grin]
