    Cornhole/Bean Bag Toss Games

    Does anyone have their own Cornhole (Bean Bag Toss) game that they made from scratch or have any recommendations on where to buy one.

    I am considering making one from scratch and was wondering if anyone had some good suggestions.

    I made my own with the new logo. Here are some pictures.
    I also used this sight for tips on building them, so it might help you as well.

    are those for playing or just for looking... they are pretty.

    PS - Do you have some lovely custom embroidered bean bags to go along with those?

    Those are extraordinary! I searched quite a few sights, and didn't see anything remotely close to being that nice! They sell much lesser game sets for 90-100 dollars or more, and they didn't have the new logo. An amazing piece of work.

    Well, if you don't have the carpentry/design of Big12Cy, you can get them at Scheel's. They still have the old logo.


    I believed in Gene Chizik and all I got was this lousy limited-edition commemorative coin.

    Official boards I see! Very nice. I've contemplated making my own for some time, but just never gotten around to it. Parents bought the ones at Scheels, so it kind of haulted the attempt. I will say that even those are very sub-par and not worth the money.

    Re: Cornhole/Bean Bag Toss Games

    I read through the posts in the above link, and you mention that you use graphics for the logo's and names. How do you like an attached graphic logo for the top of your board. I was afraid that it would become a "catch" for the bags.

    Re: Cornhole/Bean Bag Toss Games

    no matter which way you decide to go, put nets under the holes. that way you know for sure what bags went in the hole and their will be know arguments. at the end of a long tailgate it somtimes gets hard to tell what went in. i know from experience.

    Re: Cornhole/Bean Bag Toss Games

    Did you put the logos on and then a protective coating (polyurethane) over them? Or did you just apply the logos over the sealant? If the latter, do you think the logos will wear over time?

    However, not sure if you can seal over the logos.

    if you want the best then go here

    If you decide to make your own then skip the plywood. It doesn't slide like it is supposed to.
