What you need:

Miter or Circular Saw

Jigsaw or Band Saw

Power Drill

Materials:

  • 3   1x3x8 SPF Lumbar
  • 1   2'x4' piece of sanded plywood
  • 2   1/2" tall x 3/4" diameter round rubber bumpers
  • Tape Measure
  • Pencil
  • Compass
  • 2 5/16" bolts with washers and nuts
  • 1 5/8" wood screws
  • wood filler
  • paint or stain (this is where you get all team loyal) and polyurethane
  • sandpaper

The regulation bag size is 6" x6" and is filled with whole kernal corn feed, thus the name.

Here are the full instructions and lots more photos at About.Com: Woodworking. If you want to take it to the next level, you can install round lights at the hole for nighttime play.
