Who makes a nice "bags" set? (also known as cornhole)

I thought there was someone on here who made these sets...or am I just imagining that. A search got me no results.

I'm looking to have a nice bag set made and/or purchased with the State Farm logos put on them.

Might just end up making them myself now that I think about it.

Some guys I work with made some good sets. I could see if they want to make more. Is this logo a sticker or painted on?

If you are seriously interested, I can silk screen the logos onto the boards, but it is not going to be cheap just for 1 set.

I just bought a set from http://www.cornhole-game.org/ for my gf. The price was good, the set was well made, and best of all, they are local. I got the unpainted set and did my own custom design. Big brownie points for sure

fyi... The stencils used for the logos were done by our very own Greg K. at Vinylsaurus Rex

Awesome. How did you paint and stencil them? Think I might make my own set...

I laid down a couple coats of primer and went from there. I used latex exterior paint. After all the paint was laid down, I placed the stencils and painted that in. It was a bit tedious, but well worth the time spent on it.

So you did not do vinyl graphics and clear over them correct?

Primer when down first, then painted them, then stencil on top, and painted in the stencil right? Any coating on top of it all?

How's the paint holding up to play?

Correct. I didn't lay down a clear coat on top of it all either. Although I did consider that as an option. There are a bunch of ways to do it, but it just depends how much time you want to invest.

Can't tell you yet how it's holding up to play as the weather has not cooperated and I just finished it last weekend.

Cool, thanks.

I think I'm going to build some boards, nice top, stain them. Then put some vinyl down for some cool but classy looking boards. I'll add it to my weekend project.

Make them so they are not loud...the worst part of this game is the fricking noise, the second worst part, is that you have to be "kind" of active while drinking.

Edit: Quit this diy approach and support your local dealers.

Here's how far I got this weekend.

Built the set from 2x4's and 3/4" plywood top. The set is far too heavy and solid. Great overall, but have learned some things to make my next set better. I'll keep these for the house as they are heavy and I won't have to move them too much.

But, for the bags tournament I'm sponsoring, I'm going to make the sets out of smaller wood to make them lighter, plus instead of counter sinking the screws in the top, I'm going to pocket hole them in from the bottom.

Now to practice my painting.

Wait......You ride a motorcycle and you complain about how loud bags are??? Ill blow past your house one day on my bike and the bags wont seem nearly as bad

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

A friend built me my set as a thank you. He added in some great features.

1st: Attach an eye hook in the 2x4 just above ground level. Then attach a hook to each end of a nylon string the length the boxes should be apart. This make it so you don't have to measure or pace off the distance the boxes are apart.

2nd: He added in a push button led light pod, to the inside area of the box. It illuminates the hole for dimmer light play.

Have fun.

Thanks for the tips. Already working on ideas for the string/distance...and a good idea on the light.

Who makes a nice "bags" set? (also known as cornhole)

The noise a motorcycle makes and the hollow pounding of bags are two different beasts. Plus, I do not typically wear my helmet when playing bags and drinking.
