Are you sick of playing corn hole? Tired of picnics? Me either! Corn hole is awesome and we love a good picnic spread! But… how about making an alternative game that isn’t such a bear to haul to family gatherings? In this video, David from Tough Guys TV walks us through the process of making a washer toss game that is very similar to playing corn hole and is a little more compact for easy storage and transportation.



This entire project is built without any fasteners! With the combination of rabbets, miters, and two different kinds of adhesives from the Titebond product lineup, you’ll be able to craft this summertime, tailgate-friendly game for your family and friends. Be sure to keep reading to see what you’ll learn in the video and feel free to check out the links below if you need guidance on some of the tools or products you see in the video.


Because this game will be played outside, David uses Titebond III Ultimate Wood Glue for the main box assembly. This particular wood glue is best suited for exterior use due its waterproof properties. A nice bonus of Titebond III is that it has an extended working time as you assemble your pieces. If you’re really responsible, you could get away with using Titebond II on this build considering it is water-resistant – just don’t leave it outside in the rain ya silly goose. Aside from the main assembly parts, David walks us through how to apply faux grass on the inside of the game box using WeatherMaster UMP, otherwise known as a multi-purpose sealant from Titebond. Although this isn’t the traditional way that this sealant is used, it works in extreme temperatures and is known to play well with others (adhere well to all sorts of materials) making it a solid option for this application. While we’re on the topic of playing well with others, consider checking out these washers to complete your game set… they may or may not have built-in bottle openers - just sayin’!


Consider enrolling in TMCU for full access to all of the educational content and follow along with David for more tips and tricks on how to:


  • test your joinery and fit prior to applying adhesive

  • utilize basic painter’s tape to aid with alignment for assembly

  • get better coverage when using a thick sealant applied with a caulking gun

  • cheat the system when you don’t have the right size rabbeting bit
