The American Cornhole Association requires platforms be a 48" x 24" rectangle made from 1/2-inch plywood. The front of the platform stands 2-1/2 to 4 inches tall and the back of the platform sits 12 inches off the ground. The plans for this project follow those requirements.
Regulation corn bags need to be 6-inches square, made from duck canvas and be filled with two cups of corn feed. A set of eight can be purchased online for $25 to $30. You can also purchase corn bags made with a plastic filling; these are less expensive than the corn-filled bags and are weatherproof. Corn-filled bags can easily get ruined if left in the rain.
Two 24" x 48" sections of 1/2" plywood
Four 2x4 x 48" for the frame
Four 2x4 x 21" for the frame
Four 2x4 x 11-1/2" for the legs
Cut the plywood into two 2’ x 4’ sections. Cut the 2x4’s to the length specified in the cut list for the frame.
Fasten the 2x4s into a box with the 21-inch pieces inside the 48-inch pieces to form a 2’ x 4’ box.
Lay the plywood on top of the box, use the plywood to square up the 2x4 frame. Fasten the plywood onto the frame with 1-5/8” screws.
Repeat for the second platform box.
