Groomsmen Gift for your Wedding Day

Updated: Mar 8, 2021

For our Groomsmen gift, Ramtin and I decided to make them each a set of Corn Hole. This gift will set you back about $45-$50 per set. The process is very time-consuming! I recommend making a set for yourself and Best Man. We made 6 sets since we have 5 groomsmen. It took us about two weekends to finish the project

This is the guide we used to build our sets:

They will go into better detail on their website, but here are the basics. I found that when I am not the project manager, I take way better progress pictures. (:

We stained them for now and will let the groomsmen decide if they want to add a decal.


Step 1: Build the frame


Step 2: Cut the Plywood and Nail to Frame


Step 3: Make the Legs


Step 4: Cut Holes and Put on Legs with Bolts


Step 5: Sand and Stain

We recommend staining the back first!


Step 6: Touch ups and Adding your pocket holes!

We had to add our pocket holes last because amazon took awhile to deliver them!
