Do-it-yourself (DIY) projects are a great way to save money and take pride in your finished product, and cornhole boards are no exception. With family and friends gathering together for the upcoming summer season, making use of a project like this to entertain is also a great conversation-starter, and may even generate into a side business! For those yet unfamiliar, cornhole is a yard game where players take turns tossing 16-oz. bags of corn kernels toward a raised platform with a hole at the upper end. If a player lands a bag in the hole, it equals a score of three points. If a bag lands on the board, that equals one point. Play continues to the score of 21.
