Cornhole, Cornholio, Baggo, Bag Toss – Call it what you want to call it but all the same and loads of fun. And finally, the Evad Design Cornhole Set is here. Who knew that tossing bags onto a wood platform with the goal of getting it into a hole with a 6″ diameter could be so entertaining. If you’re new to Cornhole, you can learn about it here. The official Evad Design Cornhole Set and project is outlined below.

Just like any project creation, one of the greatest rewards from building the cornhole set from scratch is being able to use something you put time and effort into. It also became a lot more badass with the Evad Design logo on it. Talk about marketing at it’s finest.

The Building Process

The cornhole set wasn’t to difficult to build. The folks over at Corn Hole Supplies make it pretty simple with their downloadable PDF instructions. If you follow these instructions, it’ll be easy. Here are a couple minor issues I’d watch out for if when I built a second set:

  • Account for width of circular saw blade (The friendly folks over at Home Depot actually cut the 2×4’s for me and were a little off.)
  • Put it all together before you prime it. (You could leave the legs off and paint those separate) I didn’t have screws yet so in order to get a head start, I primed each piece individually. It was just more tedious though.

 Painting

Evad Cornhole SetI primed it twice and had to put 3 coats of paint on each section. The logo and circle weren’t the hardest to paint, but definitely took the longest in preparing. For the red circle around the hole, I was able to draw a line 1″ outside. This circle that I drew was 4″ diameter and I drilled two holes 4″ apart in a paint stick. With a screw in one hole at the center of the circle and pencil in the other drilled hole, I was able to trace a perfect circle.

I then put painters tape around on the line and drew another line on top of the paint. I then carefully took a razor and did a light cut of the tape, being careful not to cut into the wood. This gave me a circle to paint without worrying about staying inside any lines.

The logo was painted in a similar way that the circle was painted. First I had to draw the logo on the board, tape on the line, draw again, and then cut carefully with the razor.

After everything was painted, I added a couple coats of clear, glossy sealant. It was a nice touch and should help protect the boards a little from the constant pounding of the boards.

Here is the final product. What do you think?
