First I want to thank my wife for all her help, also hallmark for his ideas, also darrell peart for his book. I made the cabinet of oak with walnut pegs. Finish was general medium brown dye, then varathane teak wipe on gel stain, then wipe on general arm a seal oil based. You guys and gals rant and rave about general products, so I drove hundreds of miles and got some arm a seal and I am very impressed. I also had a hard time finding hinges that would open 270 degrees. Also in the process of making a greene and greene billiard cue rack.

Very nice design and execution. I don’t think I would let any amateur dart thrower use this board, and only sober pro’s. Thanks for the post.

Wow! I never thought a dartboard cabinet could look so nice! As Tim says, keep all novice dart throwers away from this.

Can you tell us a little about the wings(?) on the top of the cabinet?

Well if this was in my house I would put a sign above it and it would read. (If you value your life don’t miss!)

Thanks for all the wonderful comments. Brandon, to make the top; I glued two pieces of 3/4 in oak together, the bottom piece longer than the sides of the cabinet. I did not put any glue on the centre 12 inches so I could remove the centre section cut at 22 degrees later, and then replacing the centre section with another piece of material, recessing from the front. The top piece of oak is about 12 inches longer than the centre cut out, cut at 30 degrees. I nibbled on the table saw to remove material, down to 3/8 of an inch. to make the wings then hand sanded. The ends of the wings are of purple heart, 1 1/4×1 1/12×6 in. with a 1/2 dado to fit on the wings and a 1/4 inch cap on the end of the purple heart to hide the dado cut. GREG
