BUILD MORE OUTDOOR FUN: Yard Dominoes – Yardzee Dice Game – Organized Size Hole Punch Boards How To Make Kid-sized Pallet Panels From A Pallet By Tamara Of Provident Home Design In Smaller Size (24 x 32 In) I made two holes for corn boards From 1 pallet. It’s perfect for the kids just in your backyard, but also for family reunions, birthday parties, and class parties at school. Bonus: storing them is easier than volume organizing! If you have two layers, you can make corn slot boards according to the size of the regulation (48 x 24) as specified by ACO. Follow the tutorial below, and adjust the size as needed. To build legs with regulated height, refer to the “How to Make Hole Panels” tutorial. Supplies for making cornhole boards miter saw (optional) pallet (1) 4x4x6 (1) 1/4 inch piece of plywood 4×4 feet thick (1) piece of molds 12 feet by 4.5 inches (I used a simple baseboard template 1.5 inch wood screws and a tool to use – nail gun or punch sand paper stacking (optional) paint or stain (optional) Instructions on how to make corneal punch plates from a pallet 1. Measure and cut the measuring pallet and mark the pallet Your where you will make your cuts. My board was 32 by 48 inches. Using a jigsaw, I cut the billet into two 32 ” x 24 ” pieces (as shown below). 2. Measure and cut 4 x 4 x 4. Now measure and mark the 4 x 4 for the width of the pallet. Since the width of each cut board was 24 ” I cut the 4 x 4 into two 24 ” pieces. I used a miter saw for these cuts but use what you have. 3. Screw each board piece and 4×4 pieces together Place the 4×4 at the bottom of the cutting board and twist the bottom pallet to 4 x 4 (as shown below). 4. Remove sections from baseboards, if needed. If there are planks in which the scoring hole is located, cut the boards and leave the ends in place. You can see where I did this below. 5. Trace and cut the plywood Flip the “cornhole skeletons” face down on the plywood. Trace around each of them’s body and then cut along the traced lines with a jig saw. 6. Cut the plywood on each top Place the cut plywood on the “cornhole skeletons” and secure it to the top and bottom panels (along where the arrows point). 7. Cut the dies and attach them to the left and right sides of each plate. Measure and mark the side molds along the sides of the pallet. Mine was 32 inch so I cut (4) 32 inch pieces. Install the side moldings at the ends of the panels. 8. Cut the hole, tracing around the lid of a standard paint can (or anything 6 inches in diameter) making sure it is centered on the painting. Then drill a hole in the middle of the circle large enough to fit a jigsaw blade. With a jigsaw, cut out the tracked circle. Sand the edge of the circle after cutting it to prevent scratches or splinters in players’ hands. 9. Sand the boards, fill in the gaps, and then sand the cornhole boards as much as you feel is sufficient. I also chose to fill in any gaps between the top plywood sheet and the side panels with spackle and a putty knife. Then I painted everything white but you can paint or color it to your heart’s content! Voila, the cornhole panels are finished! I put a dark blue cloth inside the cornholes for aesthetics so players will not get splinters when they retrieve the bags of beans. Want some fun bags for your little group? How to Make Your Own DIY Cornhole Collection Bean Bags: Typical Cornhole toys require a total of 8 bags in two different colors, but the great thing about DIY is that you can make any number of bags in any colors or patterns you want! Cornhole Bag Making Supplies: Woven Fabric – Any type of woven (non-woven) fabric will do the trick. The cotton and cotton blend is easy to work with and comes in fun patterns. These fabrics are usually 45 inches wide, so you can make 3 bean bags for every 7 inches that you buy. Heavyweight options (for durability) are also easy to find at any fabric store. These fabrics are usually closer to 60 inches, so you’ll make 4 beanbags for every 7 inches that you buy. Matching Thread Sewing Machine Instructions For Making Slot Bags: 1. Cut two squares of fabric for each bag, cut two 6.5 x 6.5 inch squares of fabric. 2. Put two squares together Place two squares together with the top sides (right sides) facing each other. 3. Sew the squares together, leaving a gap, then turn the right side out. Note: For durability, you may want to use a small zigzag stitching stitch or a double stitch for all seams. Start from one corner and sew together leaving a 1/4 inch allowance on the sides. Leave 2 inches unstitched and turn the right side of the fabric outward by pushing the inner fabric through the 2-inch hole. 4. Fill the bag with dried beans and sew it closed a funnel through the hole in the bag and drop the dried beans through the funnel and into the bag. Fill the bag 90% full then fold the unfinished edges into the bag and sew the 2 ” hole. Now it’s time to play! We had fun with them and hope you do too!
