I made these as Christmas gifts for friends this year. Unfortunately, they were late in being completed because I kept cutting thru the lacquer finish and had to make some repairs. They hold three darts with an elastic band that fits into a length-wise groove. Two darts fit into holes from one end while the third dart nestles in from the opposite end.

The main body is alder with the sides being black walnut, purple heart, and leopardwood respectively.

Approx. 6.5” 3” 1.5”. If making your own, make sure you account for the length and shaft diameter of your particular darts. For long sets, 7” would probably be better.

I got the idea/plan out of the Woodworkers Journal, Summer 2011.

Completed January 2012.

Nice job. I need one of these for my darts.

I really like the “Two & One” arrangement! The only other ones I have seen have all three darts stored in the same direction from one end. This is a much better design.

These are really cool. I saw Grant’s too. A neat design and you both did a wonderful job with fit & finish.
