Awesome ideas. I really like the bike rim one. I am definitely going to try this one out. Especially since it will save me some money, I couldn't get a Corona light surround if I wanted to. Everyone is sold out here in the states!!!

Absolutely brilliant. I was thinking through last week, what to use as a ring and then saw this thread.

Very resourceful. I picked up a track light for $1 at a thrift store and got my brother who is an electrician to install it, so that was very light on the pocket Only a minimal shadow below the dart, but really not bad at all. But your idea is very good. I have seen LED strip lighting at local dollar stores.

Thank you guys.

In fact im still using it, although it was just meant as a provisional solution. But it just works perfect.  Cool

Look so dope but in my city the original material is most expensive than the brand items

Between this thread and a response on Facebook I'm going to give this a try ordered the lighting for £8 and sent some messages to bike shops regarding a wheel so with a bit of luck they will have one for FOC or cheap that was destined for the skip, then will only need to sort brackets so hopefully will get it done in under £15

Thanks for the Idea +1

I hoping OP or someone else who has done this might be able to answer a few questions.

I've finally got round to get a 28" Wheel for this project and doubling up the project to make a DIY Pallet dartboard surround this weekend, my questions are:

1. Would the placement of the light strip be better on the flat surface or the slight the angled surface?

2. I was intending on using or bending a bit of flat bar for the brackets to that they went straight from the outer edge of the wheel straight into the pallet dartboard surround, rather than going in at an angle like the target surround but what have people found the ideal distance from the light to the board to be?

Also if you see any flaws in my plans let me know hopefully it wont be an epic fail.

Wheel I intend to use

Thanks in Advance

I think I'd glue it to the outside of the black part.
I'm not sure if I can see enough in the pictures... Is the silver part slightly offset on the black one? If so, it could lead to a shadow if you stick it on the silver one. You would have to try it out.

I would also make the distance from the board dependent on whether and how much shadow is created.

It may be that the led stripe does not hold well, because it is glued in a perfect circle. Then you have to glue it again and again...
