    Slide the Back into the box flush against the edges.
    Using 1 1/4" pocket hole screws, attach the Back to the box.

  • Attach trim boards

    Lay the box down on the Back and spread wood glue on the Box Top and Bottom.
    Align the Top Trim with 3/4" overhang on the sides and front.
    Attach using 1 1/4" pocket hole screws through the two pocket holes on each of the Box Sides.
    Repeat for the Bottom Trim the same way.

  • Assemble doors

    Cut 45 degree miters on the ends of the Door Sides and Door Top and Bottoms, keeping the length of the long edge of each corresponding with the cut list.
    Using wood glue, attach these trim pieces to the front of each Door and then clamp in place until dry.
    Drill 6 pocket holes in the long edge of the Dart Holder.
    Using wood glue, attach the Dart Holder to the inside of one Door.
    Once everything is dry, attach the Doors to the Box Sides using hinges.

  • Add hardware

    Attach a cabinet knob to the front of each door.
    Attach magnet catches to the inside of the cabinet and their corresponding magnet plates to the inside of the Doors to keep them closed.

  • Insert Dartboard

    Hang your dart board inside the cabinet using the included screw.
    Insert darts into the pocket holes in the dart holder. You may have to push down slightly the first time to push the steel tips through the end of the hole. Then, they will go through easily each time after that.
