I’m making my father-in-law a dartboard cabinet for his newly finished basement as a gift. I was originally thinking of making it out of #2 pine, with some walnut accents, no stain – just a clear finish. This would go nicely with thier “rustic” feel of their cottage that it’s going in.
Last night I picked up a nice small piece of Cocobolo for the accent pieces instead of walnut since I couldn’t find a piece I was happy with. I had some #2 pine laying around, but it has cupped pretty bad in the time it’s been sitting idle.
This got me to thinking if I really want to make this thing out of pine. I have a real nice piece for accents, and pine is a little soft. I’m curious if anyone has any other suggestions for the cabinet material that would be reasonably easy to find in Michigan.
