I really liked the design and look of this project in the magazine so I stayed true to the plan and materials. Finished according to Jeff Jewett’s mission oak process which has been documented several places including here:
1. TransTint dye in water (Dark Mission Brown)
2. General Finishes SealACell
3. General Finishes Gel Stain (Nutmeg).
4. General Finishes ArmRSeal Satin (3 coats).
Rare earth magnets hold the doors both closed and open.
This is a heavy cabinet, 50lbs+ with the dartboard, so I added a full width french cleat to the back. Had I thought about it earlier in the build I would have recessed the back panel (and/or made the case deeper) so the cleat would be flush with the case edge. As it is now the cabinet hangs proud of the wall.
