Here is a present I made for my brother who recently put a pool table in his basement. I figured he needed some darts too. Fairly basic cabinet and my first chance to use my new Festool Domino to assemble the case and the frame and panel doors. What a really amazing tool. It seems that every Festool tool I buy is even better than the last one (even if it takes a while to save up for the next one!).

Anyway it was way more than he was expecting so as you can see in the last picture the present went over well!

PS – We eventually got it hung level, but the darn ceiling is off about 1/8” over the width of the cabinet….ugh….

That looks really nice, I’m sure he really enjoyed receiving it. I especially like the cork background; it looks good and is easy on the dart tips in case of a bad (drunken) miss…

Wow, that is one of the nicest dartboards I’ve seen posted. Love the cork background – how practical. Well done! That’s a lot of wine – How many corks?

Thanks Ron! I actually bought 2 bags of 100 corks each from Amazon for a very reasonable price. I cut each in half before applying them and went through about 1.5 bags.

That is another fine piece!
I like the corks background, at first glance it looked like bricks.
How long did it take to drink all that wine?

It appears that it was a well received gift too!

on a side note, a lot of wine bottlers are moving towards plastic and causing financial and ecological problems for the cork farmers and the cork eco-system which ishould more important and larger than I ever realized

Thanks Hans! The funny thing is I don’t drink wine at all so all of the corks were purchased.

Your work is worth seeing.

With respect to the cork comment I made, I didn’t realize how important cork was to both the farmers but also the ecology of that area and the world!
