Corn Hole Boards

Corn Hole Board Set. This was another gift for my daughter's wedding, since she likes yard games.
 Regulation size 2' x 4', built from 1×4 radiata pine, (dado's for corners, cross pieces and the top edge to inset the 1/2" birch plywood, there is also a grove to create the storage bins for the bags. Used 1-1/2" Diameter pieces of poplar mounted on 1/4” althread for the scoring between the legs, creating a abacas. One case to hold everything.
 The wedding theme is fall sunflowers, hence the playing field. The board was finished first with a whitewash. Colors are acrylic for playing field (that was the hardest part, I am not a painting artist) once flower was completed, there was a second whitewash using the blue and green. Then the board was sealed with 3 coats of Spar Varnish, with a 0000 wool and buffing then a microfiber cloth.
 Thanks for looking and comments are always welcome and appreciated.

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Very well made and nice gift. You have a nice score counter, too! I have no idea about how to play but I want one.

Great color design, good job.  Mike
Nice decoration....good idea with sunflower motives


Really nicely done!  You did a great job with the 🌻 
Thanks Pottz. One always a way to score, drinking on the other hand, one must keep their balance.

Thanks Ryan, she like the yard games for sure.

Thanks NWCraftsman.

Thanks Yrti. It is just like horseshoes but only with bean bags.

Thanks Mike. I am by no means an artist.

Thanks Ivan. I wanted to match her wedding theme.

Thanks Barb. It was tricky to paint so I did not lose the shape of the petals closer to the center.

Nice project with the surface area that can be decorated with anything, looks great Eric!
Thanks Splinter. That is true, and there are some companies that sell films to apply over the top for those that don't want to paint.

These turned out cool Eric. Never thought of having a score board on it. Perfect for those nice days in the yard.
Sun flowers are one of my favorite flowers Eric so I have to give them 2 thumbs up. I never played Corn Hole but I would if I had the boards you created. 

I would get distracted while playing admiring your wonderfully painted flowers.

Thanks Dave. The goal was to have everything included, grab one case and set it up.

Thanks James. It is a fun game; the stems were actually the easier part compared to the flower.
