You don’t see too many Dart Board Cabinets these days.
I made the doors for two cabinets about 2 years ago and still have not got around to making the carcasses.. I did the doors in Mackay Cedar… Maybe this year…
I like the pegged joinery on your doors and the white board interior..

I have a dart board in my basement. It came in a very cheap particle board cabinet. I really should build a nice cabinet like this for it. The dry erase board is a great idea. I hate the mess left by chalk dust. Did you use brass pins in the joinery on the doors? Nice touch. Gotta love the look of brass on a good hardwood.

Thanks for the posts guys. I too like using brass accents in contrast with natural woods. I did at first peg the door frames with wooden pegs but wasn’t happy with the look so I found these brass plugs and decided to insert them over top the pegs! It changed the appearance instantly.

That is beautiful . . .I have been playing darts for 7 years now in enough leagues and have never seen a dartboard case as nice as that. . . .

How big is it ?
