I was eyeing my steel cabinet for a while thinking about how nice it would be to have a writable surface somewhere on it. One night while playing cricket with my friend, I took some sandpaper and roughed up a section just a bit so I could keep score. Ever since I wanted to make it a little nicer so I decided to put a frame around it and make the chalkboard section a little more even.

I made a magnetic walnut frame and did a decent sand job on the cabinet and now I’ve got the perfect scoreboard!

Hey, that’s a pretty cool idea! I have some steel front cabinets in the shop that could use one of these for reminders. Thanks for the idea.

So… I’m confused. How did you get a circle with no x? Was that a treble shortcut?

I just made a dart board cabinet and things are heating up in the office! We’ve now got people ordering private start sets and I’m about to build a dar box for mine to really shame them.

Yea, that’s just a shortcut for when you score a triple on a number first. You’ll see numbers with a single line and a circle where you had one point on a number and then got a double or triple after that.
I’ve thought about making an entire cabinet but I think I’d want to get a better dartboard first.
