Thank you for the great plans!I used your directions with just a few minor changes. I used 3' decking screws and drywall mud. After completing them, I used the drywall mud to fill in the cracks and bumps. When they dry, I am going to sand them again and then I am going to put a few layers of paint on them. I attached a picture showing them currently before the last sanding and painting.
I saw this trick about how to get the leg height correct from another website . Once frame is attached prop the back the board on a one gallon paint can. That makes the back of the board exactly 12 inches high . Once leg is attached let it dangle off your work bench and scribe the angle. Cut it and you are good.
Love the idea for the legs. I never thought of this. For those who are new at DIY wood working, at Lowes and Home Depot you can get a 4 x 8 sheet of ply wood and have them cut it into four 2 x 4s if you are making 2 sets. First cut is free, second and third (if needed) are usually 50 cents or a dollar. This will cut the price almost in half for the ply which is usually the most expensive piece to this project. Another option is getting a "paintable" sheet of wood which is typically thinner than 1/2" plywood but it will be much easier to work with and it will be super smooth without the time and hassle of sanding. And its usually cheaper. If you go this route, take some 2 x 4 scraps and build a "T" underneath from just below the hole to the bottom 2 x 4. Doing this will add support and also prevent that dreaded bounce. Not to mention it will make for a better playing surface because its perfectly smooth before adding your paint. This would not work if you plan to stain it.
bags are supposed to be 6x6" made of duck canvas with 2 cups dried corn kernels (why its called corn hole) inside em. but you can use about two cups of anything inside bags the same size.
is it possible that you have the dimentioions for the bags themselves? Just curious, I wanted to be as precise as possible. Is there a certain size cloth one would use and does the amount or type bean you use make a difference. Thank you. George.
I was wondering the same thing. If you've found out the proper size I'd appreciate it if you would share the size, weight, Etc? Thank. George.
I've been wanting to make this game for a long time. My Grandchildren love to play, truth be told, I do too. Now I'll just have someone to play with me. I believe they'll love it, they are very competitive. Should keep them busy for a little while anyway. Thank you very much for giving me the proper size and for all the tips. George Hood.
