This is a simple instruction manual on how to create your own Cornhole Game. Be kind, this is my first instructable and my picture taking skills aren't what you would call "good."

Step 1: Getting Started

You'll need to build two gameboards, each one is 2'x4'. I used 1/2" plywood because it's still light enough to throw in your trunk, but sturdy enough it can take an accidential stomping or two. You'll also need 3 or 4 2x4's depending on how you measure and cut, and also on the final design you use.

You'll also need 1 1/2" deck screws and either 2 inch deck screws or nails. You may want to get some small hinges, but we'll get into that later.
<p>Great job. I am going to consider making a set since boards cost over $130.</p>
<p>do you have another post about making the bags or does any one else here know how</p>
I have found that a paint stick works well for drawing a circle- simply drill a hole for the screw and another hole at the measurement you need. Put your pencel tip in the hole and draw your line.

Clever bit with the string!
There is a guy using one of your images for his cornhole ad in a craigslist posting claming it's his. http://lexington.craigslist.org/for/1718903029.html just thought you'd like to know, I know I would if someone was ripping off my pics.
Glad you guys like it. I tried to make it somewhat entertaining while still making it usable.
Just made a set for a co-worker and a set for myself. Good fun.
With just a few minor changes my son and I followed your pattern and now we each have a set that are the hit at family functions. Thanks P.S. The beer helped!

Haha, Thank you for posting this! I have been planning to make my Husband a set for his birthday, but every set of instructions I found made me seem stupid. Your's I actually understand..except for the leg part...I'm still a little confused, but I am sure when I build it I will understand it better. Now before I go to Menards..or Lowes...or wherever I end up..I have to think of how I am going to paint it....maybe some clouds and a BIG RAINBOW (thanks to my kids watching 'Reading Rainbow' right now..lol) or maybe I will let my kids paint it. Oh and don't worry! I won't forget the beer while I am building it!
Nice Instructable. I have never heard of the game, but it kind of sounds fun. :P
