2x4 Dart Board with Darts video released to YouTube
This is my second contest entry for the Summers Woodworking 3rd annual creative 2x4 contest 2015.
Inspiration for this project come from a future project I have planed down the road that I will build in July or August.
This project came with a lot of challenges like woodturning with out a lathe, and the original dart board with design flaws. The design flaws comes with the type of wood grain, face grain doesn't do a great job on holding darts into the wood. By the time I discovered it the dart board was made, so I got rid of what was left with the 2x4, and bought another one to start the project over.
