Instructions

Make up a set of rules, and do your best to toss beanbags or balls through the holes in the game board. Keep score and you’ve got your own backyard tournament!

Cut the bag holes

Step 1

Measure and mark the bag hole locations on the (01) board as shown in Figure 1. Use a compass and pencil to draw the outlines for the holes.

Step 2

Use a jigsaw to cut out the bag holes.

Attach the trim

Step 1

Using glue and nails, attach the 1 1/2-inch side of the (02) side trim parts to the (01) board, with the ends flush and making the top edges flush with the face of the (01) board as shown in Figure 2. Note: This creates an approximate 1-inch reveal on the back face of the (01) board.

Step 2

Attach the 1 1/2-inch side of the (03) end trim parts to the (01) board and to the (02) side trim using glue and nails. The (03) end trim parts should cover the ends of the (02) side trim parts, and the top edges should be flush with the face of the (01) board as shown in Figure 3.

Final Assembly

Step 1

Fill any holes with wood filler, sand, prime, paint, and allow to dry.

Step 2

Prime and paint the (04) stand, and allow to dry.

Step 3

Attach the (04) stand to the back of the (01) board with 1-inch utility hinges as shown in Figure 3.
