Cornhole Boards #1

Submitted by JLFarquhar on Sun, 12/26/2021 - 17:14

This is the first of the cornhole boards this year. Having never made such before, I learned a lot of the tips and tricks in this build. This build begins with cedar 2x4s and cedar fence pickets that I took down this last summer. I began by sanding the boards starting with 60 grit through to 320 grit with a belt sander up to 180 grit and hand sanding through 320 grit. The frame was glued up with Titebond II, then counter-sunk #8 x 1-1/2 screws. Next, we used nine (9) different cans of Rust-Oleum semi-gloss paint to fill in the background and to cover the moose and bear senciles drawn by my wife. The boards were then coated with Minwax Poly-Acrylic (9 coats) and Howard's Bee's Wax (6). The boards are secured with 3-inch toggle fasteners and the handles are Kayak straps with four (4) screw holes; I used the same Torx screws for strength and stability.
