    This beanbag toss game is a fun twist on the familiar backyard bag toss (aka cornhole) game. We built the game boards using a few DeWALT tools, including the DeWALT DWS520K Heavy-Duty 6-1/2 165mm TrackSaw Kit, a DeWALT 20V MAX* Cordless/Brushless Jigsaw and a DeWALT 20V MAX* XR Cordless/Brushless Compact Router.

    The game is played with the two game boards you make and a couple of sets of 5" x 5" beanbags. The game is scored by the number of bags that fall on or in each hole. The top hole is worth 2 points. The middle hole is worth 1 point. And the bottom hole costs you 1 point.

    A beautiful wood cutting board is a functional and decorative addition to any kitchen. Making a cutting board is a great way to get started in woodworking. If you're a beginning woodworker, you don't need many tools to make a basic wood strip cutting board. All you need is a selection of solid strips of hardwood, a set of clamps with enough capacity to hold all the strips together and a sander to smooth and flatten the board after gluing it up.
