Re: Wanted to Show these off

Did you put any type of clear varnish on after you applied the decal? I have been back and forth on if it would be necessary for protection (mainly for the decal), but also do not want the boards to be to slick.

Re: Wanted to Show these off

We did put a clear coating on (girlfriend did it as she is far more careful and steady handed than I am!) but we did it after we took these pics, so the boards are now much more shiny. If you are going to use decals you have to put a clear coat on as the sticker is certainly going to come up, this was WAY more obvious to me after we placed the stickers on. We are probably going to put on a second and maybe even third coat to protect the stickers and the boards in general.

That looks like essential tailgating equipment written all over it.

Excellent!

My sister made a set a couple years ago (no desgin on them) with thinner plywood and it is warped and difficult to use.
I had the same problem with a set I made for my son-in-law. Corrected it by using non-warped 2 X 4s. He hasn't painted them yet, and wants one silver, for his Raider Silver and Black, and one Gold for my Redskins. He has my granddaughters so confused!

Re: Wanted to Show these off

I made a set and I torn about painting them. I made mine out of oak plywood and they slide so much better then the real slick painted boards. If anyone wants to make a set you can buy the ply wood already cut from lowes you just pay a little more for them. You will have to cut out the hole.

I can only guess that the southern fried country folks couldn't say that long of a sentence so they shortened it to "cornhole". And if I'm not mistaken I thought the "bean bag toss" had more then one hole which also shows the country folk can't handle more then hole

Why would it be called Bean Bag Toss when the bags are filled with corn? Sounds like the south just corrected what was wrong.

Yeah I should have checked the 2x4s more closely before I started! Will do on the next one.

Pretty good for amateur stuff. But since you wanted to show off....

Sweet! I like my yellow better just because it has the old school look but your boards certainly look better constructed.

i like the design of these ones alot though, the way the burgundy is kind of pointing to the cornhole is a cool idea, great job
