A few years back my Uncle Bobby made this awesome corn hole game for a cousin of mine.  Ever since then I've been thinking that might be fun to make one for us here in NJ.

My husband and I have been working on a few wooden projects ever since we purchased a table saw at a garage sale.  Yup - it was our lucky day - brand new and in the box!!  We worked with our table saw outside - because our basement is too small.

We worked together on this project.  My idea, my husband's design, my manual labor, many helpful suggestions given along they way.  We make a great team.

So here are the photos.  I had made a few more bean bags, but a friend's little one thought they were great "balls" to throw in our pond and we had to throw them out.  Boo!  So I need to make a few more in the next few days.

In progress photo - the plans were a bit complicated, so we glued templates on the wood to make drilling the holes easier.  (Yes - I realize it's pretty dark outside, we were on a role and kept continuing on even though it was getting dark.  It's hard to stop when the end of a project is so close.  It also helps keep the smell down of the spray glue.  And the fourth was coming up so we needed to finish the project before our BBQ with friends)

We sure did have a lot of fun making it!  The game was a hit this fourth of July!!

What a fun game. Why don't you make the next beanbags from different colour so you could have team games?

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
