My son had been asking for a Dart Board Cabinet for that last couple of years. Since I have had trouble with my back which made me give up golf for a while, I was able to get back into my shop for some Christmas presents.

Some of the design components were “inspired” by daruco’s project.

The box is made of cherry, the doors of alder and the handles of walnut. This is the first time I have worked with alder, and don’t think I will do much more with it. It is very soft and dings very easily. It was also the first project I was able to use my new Festool sander with dust extraction. Still amazes me how well that works. Finish is Waterlox.

I also have a jewelry box and “shadow box coffee table” to post, also requests from family.

As an avid, league dart thrower….
Great job!!!

I like the use of corks for the backboard.
However, I love the “dart handles”!!!
