Hi Folks – Well this is very similar to my previous Dartboard project with some minor tweaks and improvements. I used Walnut and Maple this time which seems to be my go to combination. I think I bought this new camp just so I had an excuse to do a bunch of woodworking projects :-) The place is in Maine and yes we call it Cliffside, the dart location points out where it is on the map – not a really challenging project but one I hope the family gets a lot of use out of!

Love the use of corks for background almost makes it look like an old brick wall. Nice overall.

Thanks Ron. I wish I could take credit for it but I saw the technique online where other people had used it. I like it for the same reasons and it also is a great functional backing to catch errant throws. Got all the corks on Amazon pretty cheap and just split them on the bandsaw.

This is an outstanding wall cabinet. This would be a nice accent in a man cave.

That Walnut & maple is a nice combination Scott.
And I’ve used those no-mortise hinges on a few projects recently and really like them.
I;m sure the family will get a lot of fun out of that Dart Board.

Hey Rick – I considered building in a chalk board instead of a white board but decided there would be a lot less mess with a white board. I also thought the door would also take less of a beating over the years since far less pressure is required to write and erase with a dry erase marker. I do think the white board lacks a certain old school charm a chalk board would have though.
