    Cornhole boards

    Here are my first cornhole boards that I am building on my own. We have another set but we bought that one.



    Next step is obviously PAINT! But what should I do? I have a few designs in mind that I kinda did a make up of.



    I am personally leaning towards C, but I know it will take a lot more work to get them done. (My deadline is my graduation party on Sunday).

    If there are any other design ideas, please tell me and I will consider it!

    Thanks.

    I thought about that but I thought it looked like too much yellow for me.

    Or instead of having a white ring around the holes you could do a red one for the twister and a yellow one for the I state. Just throwing ideas about

    Re: Cornhole boards

    Personally I'm a fan of option A (when I get around to building mine they'll resemble that design), but hey, they're your boards, and if option C is what you like, more power to you. It's not like that design sucks, either...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Hmmm I thought this was a reference to the Nebby boards now that they bailed on the B12. Never mind.

    I actually just did that in my mockup and I really like it. If I go with option C I am definitely going to do that.

    Please, let's not call this "cornhole". Go with bean bag toss.

    Re: Cornhole boards

    love your ingenuity, but that Criner/Walden era Iowa State logo has to be DEEP-SIXED indefinitely.

    Do not pick "C"

    Bury that fricking p.o.s. logo forever. It represents horrible teams and a horrible program and two lousy coaches, and a non-supporting administration

    Bean bag toss? You fill the bags with feed corn, hence the name cornhole. I know all my family out in Iowa calls it bean bag toss but everyone over here in Ohio calls it cornhole.

    Yeah Iowa State fans call it Bean Bag Toss, I would ask you to fall in line.

    I don't really have a strong opinion on the design itself, but having finished a set of boards at the start of last FB season, I can tell you that to do it right, it's a LOT of work and quite time-consuming. The actual time spent doing stuff isn't bad but you're constantly waiting for something to dry or paint another coat so it takes time.

    First off, I assume these logos are decals, right? Because if you intend to hand paint those I'd be stunned if you finish these by Sunday.

    Second, are you putting a coat of sealant on there? You should do so. It will protect your paint and put a finish that will create a nice playing surface. I recommend this stuff. The "experts" I researched said anywhere from 7-10 coats with some very light sanding every 3 coats or so.

    Here is a great resource for painting and finishing. Having done this all myself not long ago I'd be happy to offer any advice.

    EDIT: here is a link to the boards I finished last year.
