You know, I was over at my brother-in-law’s the other day, and he tells me he wants to build a dart board cabinet. And I’m thinking, “A dart board cabinet? Who still plays darts? What is this, the 70s?”

But, you know, I’m a good sister-in-law, so I tell him I’ll help him out. We head down to the hardware store, and he starts picking out all these tools and materials, and I’m just standing there thinking, “What have I gotten myself into? I don’t know the first thing about building anything!”

But, you know, I’m not one to back down from a challenge. So we get back to his place, and he starts drawing up these plans, and I’m like, “This is way too complicated. Can’t we just buy a dart board cabinet on Amazon or something?”

But he’s determined, so we start measuring and sawing and drilling, and before you know it, we’ve got ourselves a dart board cabinet. And I have to say, it actually looks pretty good! I mean, I still don’t understand the appeal of darts, but if my brother-in-law ever needs another cabinet built, I’ll be there to help. Hey, maybe next time we can build a DIY ping pong table or something!

A solid wood dartboard cabinet instantly transforms your game room into a destination. Dartboards are a modern-age staple in any room of the house, and they have been used for centuries.

  • Drill
  • Aviation snips
  • Finish nailer
  • Orbital sander
  • Table saw
  • Pocket hole jig
  • Drill press
  • Plug cutter
  • Miter saw


  • 1x4x8 inches oak board
  • 0.5 x 2 x 4 inches oak board
  • 0.5 x 2 x 4 inches oak plywood
  • 4 x 48 x 5/32 inches cork roll
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Four hinges
  • Vinegar
  • Table salt
  • Muriatic acid
  • 3/4 x 8 inches screen molding
  • 24 x 36 inches weldable steel sheet
  • 1×2 x 8 inches oak board

Step 1: Drill the plug holes

Drill holes using a 3/8 inches Forstner bit. Ensure the holes are 3/8 inches deep to create room for the plugs.

Step 2: Make plugs

Cut the plugs from a piece of the wood used for your cabinet. Chuck the bits into a drill press and then set the depth to cut about 0.5 inches deep. Cutting any deeper ruins the plug.

Step 3: Assemble your cabinet box

In this step, drill a pilot hole in the center of each plug hole, then into the ends of your cabinet top/bottom. Add glue, and then screw the boxes together using 1-inch screws.

Step 4: Plug the screw holes

Choose the plugs that match your surrounding grain and then glue them into place.

Step 5: Add the back

Be creative about the back panel and cut it perfectly to make a square which you will use to square the box.

Step 6: Build the doors

For this step, bore the plug holes in the side of your frame and then screw to the bottom and tops and then fill the plug holes. Ensure you have a square by taking the diagonal measurements. If they are equal, then you have a perfect square.

Attach the top and the bottom face frame rails. Then, cut the stiles and nail them to your frame flush using the rails. Cut horizontal and diagonal pieces and then glue them to the back side of your face frame. Secure them in position using a clamp and let the glue dry.

Step 7: Drill dart holes

Cu around 1×4 to about 12 inches and mark the lines where the cut will be made at an angle that fits in the corner. Measure and then draw a line across the top edge of your board at 5.25, 7.25, and 9.25 inches.

Make sure you align the pocket hole jig to each mark, rest it on a 0.75 inches spacer block, and then drill the pocket holes.

Drilla 0,375 inches hole that will account for the length of your dart tip in the middle of the hole. Cut 4 pieces of cove mold and let it fit inside the door frame. Cut three pieces of screen mold for holding the panels and 4 more for trimming the cabinet against your wall.

Next, sand the wooden parts to 220 grit, then stain and apply coats of finish.

Step 8: Attach your chalk and dart holders

Under this step, drop the steel panel into your door frame. Then, fit two pieces of cove molding inside your door frame and glue them to the bottom frame board at the front of your metal paneling.

Step 9: Install the chalkboard

Cut your chalkboard panels to a size that fits the chalk tray, then glue and nail the screen molding to hold it in place.

Step 10: Mount the hinges

Position your hinges so that the barrel is flush with the edge of your cabinet. Then drill pilot holes and then screw the hinge to your cabinet. The final step is to set the doors against your cabinet and then use a spacer to form a gap.

Drill pilot holes and then screw the hinge to the doors. Use screen molding to conceal the plywood panel, and then attach the cabinet to your walls and mount your dartboard.
