- Circular saw
- 16 10d nails
- 18 drywall screws

Measure the plywood
Measure 9 inches from the top of the plywood and 12 inches from one side. Mark this spot with a pencil as the center of the cornhole.
Measure and cut a hole
Measure with a compass and cut a nine-inch diameter hole with a jigsaw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper.
Cut three 2 x 4s
Cut one two-by-four into 21 inch lengths. Cut two two-by-fours into 48 inch lengths.
Build two 48-inch-by-24-inch rectangles with the cut two-by-fours and assemble with two penny nails at each corner.
Attach the plywood
Attach the plywood to the rectangles with drywall screws. Screw four screws on top, four on bottom, and two along each side.
Assemble the legs
Cut four 12-inch lengths from the last two-by-four. Cut an angle on one end of the four pieces to prop the top of the cornhole board up 13.5 inches and secure it to the sides of the rectangle with drywall screws.
Paint the board
Prime and paint the boards. Now find some bean bags and you are ready to play.
