After 23 years in the Navy, I figured it was time to make myself a little memorabilia. I do not have anything related to my time in the sub service around my house. I think this is just the right thing for me with a little function. I believe I could sell these around the base here. Anyone willing to give price points, I would appreciate it. This is made out of 100% pine from the local home improvement store. I also made the hinges using the Incra iBox and Hingecrafter. I used some sticker type chalk board material and whiteboard material for the inside of the doors.this technique would have worked better if the doors had solid sheet ply vice 3 individual slats that are slightly bowed.

Nothing “mad ” about being a diver, I enjoyed some of the most enjoyable and memorable times under the water.

The dart Board I assume the “price points” refers to an approximate sell price for you.

BTW It looks like a well built project so where are the rest of the photos?

So as a guide if its made to the standard dart board dimensions it would be worth a considerable amount of money to the right person, that being allied interested parties as you mentioned.

I built one for a family friend some time ago and they generously gave me AUD $60. Is in my projects if you want to take a look.

Now I am not suggesting you sell it for sixty bucks either, have a look on ebay and you may find a indicative lowest price, and I emphasise lowest price as its a bargain shop to say the least, failing that drop by a sports/gaming store and see what is available then add a custom made portion and I would think it would be a fair price.

Then if all that fails to work,... keep it for yourself and enjoy the works.

-- Regards Rob

Nuke MM here. Were you nuke or conventional? Also, great work! It looks really nice and I wouldn’t have guessed that you used box store lumber from the picture. Do you have more pictures? That might help some of us give you a better idea of price point. Although not always the most realistic rule for the biggest shops or the smallest shops, sometimes tripling your material cost will put you in the right ballpark. Then you can just use your gut to move that number up or down to what you are comfortable asking for.

I have an exposed dart board and have been thinking of making something similar!
What does the inside look like? Is there dart storage?

Considering how much comparable, not plastic or particle board, cabinets sell for I saw nothing less than $80 for a pine pine. There are models at $250 and up so you have quite a range. I believe that these all included the bristle board. Here is a link to those sold on Google and where I got my price data.

This is a clean design with good color content!

I like the look of the front, I may have to adapt this for a tool cabinet. Nice work here. Now get back aft and push, nuke!
