More boards

Last year, I made a set of cornhole boards for my nephew. While making those, I also made a set for the Tiny Bungalow (and for when the folks from the Tiny Bungalow go to an outdoors event). Of course, things being as they are, I never finished my own boards. This is one of the projects I want to wrap up before spring.
This weekend, I started sanding the boards and more importantly, I finalized the designs of the boards. I am being daring by unveiling the design before I have it done. God knows if I can actually make them look like this. It is surely going to push the limits of my spray paint airbrush capabilities but I think they will be cool. The striping will be the hardest part.
I have been getting ridiculed by my friend Steve for not finishing these yet. He's also remarked that I am wasting my time because once they are done, I won't let people throw the corn bags at them anyway. He may be onto something there...

These cornhole boards are awesome. I love how you've incorporated Wrigley and USCell into the designs. Are you planning to market these or just make them for friends and family?

Thanks. I have to actually paint them on the boards first. We'll see what kind of luck I have with that and then move forward from there.

Guess it is a clue as to where my mind is - but I had to scroll back up after seeing the Cubs design to realize the first one said Sox - I thought it said Sex when I first looked at it!!!

Good luck with painting.

I was thinking of doing another pair: "Sex" and "Abstinence" but am not sure how much appeal it would have.
