How to Build a Corn Hole Scoreboard with Drink Holder

Step 1: Cut the Boards

The scoreboard is made of 2 boards cut at 10-1/4″ wide by 42″ long. This can be a done using a table saw.

Step 2: Cut the Feet

I measured 2″ in from the sides and bottom for a cut out to create the feet. I used a roll of tape to create the curve for the corners.

Step 3: Cut out the Cup Holders

Cut two boards at 4″ x 10-1/4″ and one at 1-1/2″ x 4″ for the vertical support.

Then mark the cut outs for the drink holders (about 3″ in diameter) on one board and round off the corners. Once I started cutting I decided to round them vs the 45 shown below. I also added a slot for a wine glass which wasn’t really necessary since the opening for the drink was so wide already.

Step 4: Drill the Holes

I drew straight lines down one of the boards, spaced equally from the sides. Then I found center, marked it on each line and spaced 22 holes 1-1/2″ apart. Find the right drill bit for the tees you are using. Practice on a scrap piece of wood to make sure you’re happy with the fit.

Step 5: Assemble the Drink Holder

First, I drilled pocket holes on the underside of the top and bottom boards used for the drink holder.

Then, with I glued and nailed it together with 1-1/4″ brad nails.

Step 6: Finish and Assemble

I started off by painting where the two stripes would go with yellow exterior paint. Then I taped off straight lines centered over the holes with 2″ painters tape and painted the boards and drink holder blue.

Then, once the paint was dry, I installed the drink holder using 1-1/4″ pocket screws.

Next I added 1″ white adhesive numbers to the board in between each hole.

Finally, I installed the hinges to the inside of the boards. If I had to do it over again I would have attached the drink holder last to make the hinge installation a little easier. With the drink holder on the boards wont lay flat.

    Love the idea and the looks of this. Any reason that you used pocket holes instead of just attaching them from the inside of the board?
