Constructing a dartboard cabinet is a project that any homeowner can accomplish. The materials can be bought and cut to size in a home improvement store and assembled at your residence. The dartboard cabinet serves two purposes. The first is to hide the dart board when not in use. The second is to eliminate some of the damage to the wall from errant throws.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Glue the corkboard to the 24-by-24-inch piece of plywood. If the corkboard overlaps a little, trim it off. The glue needs to be applied across the entire surface of the plywood.

  2. 2

    Nail the first piece of the 24-by-6-piece of plywood to the outside of one of the runs on the 24-by-24-inch plywood. It should be flush with the back edge of the board. The nails should be six to eight inches apart for a secure side. Continue this process with all four sides.

  3. 3

    Screw the hinges into the outside of the top of two of the linear boards. They should be able to open outward. The hinges should be 10 inches apart and seven inches from the top and bottom of the cabinet.

  4. 4

    Screw the edges of the two 12-by-24-inch pieces. This structure will create the doors of the cabinet. Screw the hinges to the inside of these doors to conceal the hinges.
