DIY : How to Build Regulation Cornhole Boards & Bags in Europe

Now what to do when you live in Europe with the amazing metric system?

Wouldn’t it be amazing if we just had a global measurement system that divided by 10? Alas, there needs to be a little conversion. Most local home improvement stores in Germany and around Europe sell a variety of wood that is somewhat difficult to understand. Typically someone in the store will speak English, but hopefully this guide will help.

In the USA we would use 2″x 4″ lumber for the frame and 1/2 inch plywood or MDF (medium density fiberboard).

In metric the closest thing available easily and cheaply is 7cm x 4.5cm lumber for the frame and 15mm plywood/mdf.

This results in 3 inches high on front vs 4 inches high on front of the cornhole board. That is the only major difference due to the metric system unless you want to glue 1 inch strips of wood on the front to create a small lift to get to 4″ high on the front end.

12 inches high on the back of the board is easily adjustable by the height of your posterior or back legs. Not much of a problem. Wing nuts and bolts attach the posterior legs to the back of the board for ease of folding when not in use.
