Make a Cornhole Toss Set with Laser Cutter Access

tiger-paw-cornhole-boardsSo for those of you that read my blog, have access to a laser cutter, and are looking for something to do with it, this could be an interesting project for you.  I’m sure that doesn’t include a lot of people, but if you happen to be a grad student at a major engineering school, this might include you.

Essam, a friend of mine, is one of these people, and, no doubt – or maybe not – inspired by my Paw stencil for bleach t-shirts and the instructions for building a cornhole set, decided to make his own (more pics after the “read more”).  His turned out beautifully, admittedly better than the plain red set that I made.  Besides the laser cut Tiger Paw stencil, he actually used bolts on the legs and rounded them off so they can be retracted for storage and portability.  He also used an actual 6″ hole saw, which can be quite expensive.  Here’s one off of Amazon for under $20 if you want to go that route.  I haven’t personally tried it, but the reviews are pretty good considering this is half the price you’d likely see at your local hardware store.

Some of these photos were originally seen on a Hackaday article that I wrote a while ago. Essam sent me a few good ones that I didn’t use before, so they are included here.  As mentioned earlier in the article, be sure to check out my full instructions for building a cornhole board!
