Backyard Games Series: Build a Cornhole Board

What has been making family reunions tolerable for centuries?  Backyard games!  Get ready to add some friendly competition to your next barbeque with your handmade creation:  A Corn hole board!  Join fellow novices in the woodshop to learn some basic machinery skills on the table saw, band saw, chop saw, router, drill press, and power drill, as well as some basic hand tool use.  At the end of the class, you will have constructed a corn hole board ready for decoration or varnish.  Need two?  Come with a friend to make a pair during class or use your newly honed skills to make a second on your own.  Completion of this class will also fulfill your Woodshop Orientation with Certification requirement, as we will discuss basic shop safety during this course.
