I had a request for a Dart Board Cabinet.
So as I had some Camphor Laurel Stock left I sorted some suitable pieces and set to work.

The base was a straightforward construction, four equal sections lock mitered together and an MDF back
inserted then covered with cork.
Sanded to 320 Grit

The doors were the typical Raised Panel construction.
The finish is a LLWW special, a hint I picked up from Larry at my last Visit (to check out his laser),and I used his secret oil finish.

Grape seed oil

By paying attention to grain features the center stiles are cut from one piece along with the upper and lower rails to produce a grain flowing effect.

The panels were from my stash of Book matched stock which I had made previously.
I simply selected some of the stock of a suitable size and then trimmed them to suit.

The top profile and all the dimensional sizes came from a ” how to make a Standard size dart board Cabinet” on the web.

Internal fitout was MDF blackboard inserts and the chalk/ dart holders from leftover stock.
I decided on removable boards as repainting was a possibility later so they can be simply removed from the battens.
The back internals was four cork tiles cut to size.
On the rear I installed a French Cleat to allow the unit to be set up and removed at the owners discression.

The tools I used were:
Jointer, thicknesser, table saw, shaper table, oscillating sander, battery drills, squares, various clamps, orbital sander.

P.S. I hope the customer has a “standard” dart board, otherwise I have another nice router bit cabinet!

The attention to detail is what makes this a fabulous piece.

Great job, we have to protect those dartboards! I’ve saw some with a block of wood on the inside of the door with holes drilled into it to hold darts too, I like them, make for easy storage.
