Step 1: Gather Materials

• 4 2x4x48"
• 4 2x4x24"
• 2 4x2x1/2" sanded plywood
• Wood glue
• Nail gun
• Drill
• Jigsaw
• Paint (Your choice color)
• 4 2x4x11"
• 4 4" bolts with washers/nut
• 8 corn bags

Step 2: Sawing and Nailing Glue

Bring your 4 2x4x48" and 4 2x4x24" wood to your saw and cut triangles out of the corners. (see picture 2) Then glue and nail the wood together like in pictures 3 and 4. You should end up with two box shapes like in 4.

Step 3: The Top

This one is quite simple. Put the top on the square like in pic one. Nail and glue the sides down. Since we used a nail gun, it left in endent so we used wood putty to cover the hole.

Step 4: The Hole

Use a compas, a cup, or anything to make a circle. Once you draw the circle, use the drill to cut a small hole in the side of the circle and use the jigsaw to cut out the circle. It should end up as thelast picture.

Step 5: Painting

Painting is all up to you. You can make it whatever color and if you want, a picture. The choices are all up to you!

Step 6: Stands

just nail the 4 2x4x11" to the back ot the box to stand it up like in the picture. There you have it! your very own corn hole game!

    What are the 4 bolts for in the materials list? The 2 legs?

    Thanks for the directions. I can't see paying $100+ for something so easy to make. Forgot to add 6" hole centered 9" from top.

    Were building these for an end of the summer carnival that my church is hosting. I decided to post it on instructibles just to see what would happen.
