New to the site and Woodworking

I am probably one of the youngest members here (25.) I grew up with woodworking my grand father was building an airplane in his basement for a large portion of my childhood along with other random projects. Only recently have I taken up the hobby by myself. Last year I really got started when I wanted to build a cornhole tailgate game for my self and spent enough on tools and supplies I had to build several and sell them to get even. After that I just couldn't get away from wanting build something more. I have mainly just built stuff for the shop with my new tools as practice but am looking forward to starting some nice projects.

Welcome aboard. This is a great forum. Glad to see a person get started into woodworking when they are young. Working on that airplane should have been fun.

What is a " cornhole tailgate game?"

cornhole

i think he means ..........its the game that you build the "goals" from plywood, which are two sloped boxes (no bottoms) with a hole in the top , near the top edge. kinda like horse shoes, you throw bean bags in (maybe 4 per team, different colors) ...the top is smooth and regions are painted near the hole. you get points for your bean bag staying on the top, near the hole and in the hole. if the other team throws similar shots you cancel each other out, you attempt to achieve as a team (2 against two, opposite sides of the playing feild). This caught on fast with the college aged people around here (PA). nephew made some, they play at the river lot and wherever else..the frat houses here have them out all the time. It is a great game for any age, at reunions and parties. i'll have to look up the particulars on it and maybe build some before summer parties here. blah blah blah.....just got to the sites!

Yes that is exactly what Cornhole is. I live in Auburn AL where Football is huge. If you are not familar our town has about 25,000 people but the stadium holds 87,451 and there is easily another 20,000 people just tailgating not going to the game. This is why I had no trouble unloading these games for over $100. Painted them Orange and Blue and made cornbags from Auburn cloth and I could not build them fast enough. This year I have many more tools so I should be able to make them much faster. These were built with: Compound miter saw, cordless drill and a biglots jigsaw and a crapy palm sander. Plus a few hand tools but I didn't even have a circular saw at the time.

Here is a few that I made.
