Project Information

We recently added an electronic dart board to our game room. A cabinet seemed necessary and with a "to do" list miles long I went to Google to find one. WOW, was I suprised to see $150 on the low end for a real wood cabinet, and prices going steadly up to nearly $500 for some, I stopped short of custome ones. So I set out to use up some scrap pine [walls are T&G pine] to make one. Guess it will work for us. under $5 in tensioned hinges and money to buy the necessary dart beverages.

5$ spent and now you have a cabinet that is worth hundreds, maybe that means more shop equipment that you can save more money with. As woodworkers we enjoy a double pleasure. Cabinet looks very nice, I have never heard of an electronic dart board, quess I live too far out in the bush.

Tell your wife that you want to spend the $145 you 'saved' on a new tool. She'll understand.

That's a very lovely cabinet, Doug. But, what if someone who's wrong-handed wants to play? I mean, it's up against to wall on the right. I think of other people, here. I'm right-handed.
It's a beautiful, beautiful piece.And such a departure from the things you usually post.

With the cost and effort you did to make the cabinet Doug, it beggers belief as to how the others can charge such high, high prices…..well done sir..
