When it comes to playing cornhole, you need three things for the game; cornhole boards, bags and scoreboard. So I decided to write a how-to tutorial for these three items.

It’s a fun game to play for any age level and although official rule do exist, you could make up your own rules as long as you have fun.

Building these popular DIY cornhole boards was a lot of fun and it only took few hours to make. Staining and painting probably took longer than building it. Our kids love playing it, although they don't necessarily follow the rules and just make up their own.

Most of the cornhole set you buy on Amazon are made from ½” plywood. I used ¾” plywood to make it sturdier and so that bags would not bounce up when hitting the board. Also, knowing my 8 year old son, after he gets bored playing cornhole, he’ll make a bike ramp out of it.

Step 1: Cut Top Board

Take a full sheet of ¾” plywood and using a table saw (or a skill saw) cut 4 feet by 4 feet piece. Then cut that piece in half leaving you with two 4 feet by 2 feet pieces. This will be the top of the DIY cornhole boards.

From Step 12, you keep talking about sowing something, but never do explain what you are sowing, or where -- or even why!! What is that all about???

We made bags using real corn. On a weekend camping trip squirrels ripped open the bags and ate the corn. The poly pellets sound like a good idea.

Beautiful set, I am definitely going to try to make myself a pair as well. I appreciate the sewing instructions too. Nice job!

This is an excellent looking set! Great detailed steps to help others complete their own, too. Nicely done!
