Intro: Ultra-lite Cornhole

I made these ultra-lite corn hole boards by using 1x2's in place of 2x4's and hardboard rather than plywood. Because of the laxity of the hard board I made cross braces to hold the center of the boards stiff.

    I've built a lot of cornhole sets, and I've considered a few designs for light-weight versions. I like the idea here. My concern would be about the hardboard's ability to take the beating from the bags, especially around the hole. Have you played on this long enough to see how it's held up? I'm quite curious.

    Also, what did you do for legs?

    The legs are the same 1x2's that were used for the sides and the hardboard holds up well but is very susceptible to moisture so seal it well front and back.

    Cool! Looks like it needs a fancy paint job though.:) I've got a pretty neat set I'm working on now... perhaps I'll post a slideshow when I'm done.
