DIY Portable Dartboard Stand
Thought I'd share a little DIY project I finished a few months ago.  Made a simple portable dartboard stand.  It's fairly light weight: 13 lbs---just two lbs more than the dartboard.  Used mostly left over materials from previous projects and only spent about $20 on this one.  
  • Used poplar for the frame and legs.  Reinforced stress points with aluminum angle and plate.
  • The back is 1/4" oak plywood and has a piece of solid 1/4" oak screwed and polyurethane glued on for the dartboard mounting bracket.
  • 1" oak dowel for the brace on the legs.
  • Adhered 1/2" of cork behind the board and stained it black.
  • Applied carpet to the back so it doesn't scratch walls.

I stained the wood grey for a weathered look and stained the cork black.

The legs lock into place in the upright and stored positions with quick pins that are inserted through steel spacers.  The spacers go through aluminum angles and plates.

Thats great work. Arranging it to use preexisting wall instead of adding bulk by needing a heavy base is smart
