Cut a sheet of 3/4-inch plywood 2 feet wide by 4 feet long, and cut 2-by-4 studs to match the lengths of the sides, attaching the pieces using a power drill and long screws. Measure and trace a circle 6 inches in diameter and 9 inches from the top of the frame. The circle should also be equal distances from both sides. Use a 6-inch hole saw to cut the hole, and sand the cut edges to a smooth finish. Repeat the process for the second board.

Cut two wood pieces for the legs to hold the cornhole board at an angle during game play, attaching them to the top corners of the board. If desired, use hinge bolts to create folding legs for easy storage. Make the toss bags by cutting 16 squares of fabric measuring 7 inches on each side. Sew pairs of fabric together on three sides, fill them each with 2 1/4 cups dry corn, and sew the last side. Add a double stitch on each side to create stronger toss bags.
