I'd thought I share my experience on creating a raised oche. If you don't mind I mention the sizing in cm's (I am Dutch )
What do you need:
- MDF 12mm thick, 120 x 236 cm
- Piano hinge 60cm
- 10 mtr Double sided tape
- Carpet 80 x 260 cm
- Staple gun
I bought a plate of 12mm thick MDF and cutted this in 4 equal parts of 60 x 118 cm
I glued two pieces upon each other with some wood glue. Did that also for the other 2 parts.
Attached the two pieces to eachother with the piano hinge so you can fold the oche beneath your dartboard:
Attach the doublesided tape on the upper side of the oche and cover the outer side of this upper side.
Wrap the MDF with the carpet and use the staple gun to attach the carpet to the bottom side. The upperside will be attached with the double sided tape
I'm happy with it!
