Thank you for this great tip. I know exactly what you are talking about.
There are literally hundreds of design options with eyelets and grommets.

Respect! At first I only read comments on this page. Then I looked it up and it's amazing. Pure darts beauty.

I snagged one of the wedges I cut out when felling a tree. Didn't do a great job of lining up the drill straight. But it holds a set for me, and a set for my wife next to the board. I'll have to see if I can get a picture tonight. I also like that it gives a bit of stadium seating, and it's easier than just flat from front to back. I may drill a third line of holes up the middle.

Not sure if anyone is chamfering the holes, but I took a bit for countersinking screws to give each hole a feed ramp of sorts. Makes it a lot easier to slide the points in.

I'm a big fan of wood and leather though. Still thinking if there is a way I can make a case out of leather. Thin plastic covered in leather, not sure how to put a usable pocket for stems/flights. Then I see cases I can get for $10, and I realize I like my cheap case, and tackle box for bulk.

Recently the bark came off, but it still looks decent, and I flipped the bark around so it's a curved backstop to a little figurine that is normally next to the darts.  Normal decor had to make way for Christmas.  Didn't sand or do anything for it.  Literally just the bit you cut from the tree to direct the fall.

Have a few other wedges I set aside the last few days.  I'll have a few slabs of live oak I may do something with for decoration, or key hanging boards.

Are the zip pockets of the Takoma XL easy to get into? I ask because I have the standard Takoma case and can barely get my fingers in to dig out stems, rings, etc. I like the case otherwise but boy are those tiny compartments hard to get anything out of. Thanks

RegisterI tend to like the natural look, so that looks decent.

My current yoga block is looking the worst for wear after only a short time - the dart holes tend to become more 'generous' as time goes on. So as you can see, many of the darts tend to sag to one side.

With wood, this won't be as much of a problem. Time to find me a tree....

Know anyone with land?  I've got a few acres, and over the last year and a half have been pretty steadily cutting down dead/diseased/competing trees.  I can't give away what I cut.  Just last weekend generated a lot more firewood, and a bed load of slash that I dumped onto a burn pile.  Still two more trees to drop in that area of the yard.  Shipping would be rough to you though.  Big Grin

I'm assuming you are looking for something different than a board from the hardware store.  Which with a little stain (or my favorite, tung oil finish) can look pretty sharp as well.
