STEP 1: DIMENSIONS
Its important you first know the established dimensions for cornhole. Here’s a diagram with the basic measurements for the boards. The American Cornhole Organization is who we referred to for these measurements. (They get a tad bit more specific with their dimensions so if you’re building a tournament set you can visit their site.)
There is only one measurement that we will not duplicate perfectly and that is the 3” front end of the boards. As much as we’d like our boards to match that measurement, our primary goal is to provide you with an excellent cornhole set that is EASY to build. Most do-it-yourself boards (as well as many boards purchased from manufacturers) do not meet the 3” requirement. Rather, our boards measure around 3 to 4 inches at the front edge which is more than adequate for a good ol’ game of cornhole and certainly makes the building process a whole lot easier.
(We have instructions for a more sophisticated cornhole set coming to our e-books section soon.)
