Hi, so I wanna make a pedal board that can house a Line 6 Pod HD500 as well as some more pedals here and there and a power supply for under $50 max. A little bit over is fine also. Another important aspect is that it needs to be in a case that I can carry anywhere.

The only problem? I have no skills in woodworking or painting or anything of that sort. I wonder if you guys could tell me what I need and instructions OR point me to a good website with lots of pictures and explanations on what to do and what tools and materials I need to get me started.

Just Google it man, that's what I did when I built mine. It gets the job done, but it's not very professional. All I basically did was buy a few pieces of wood, and screw them together, giving me a slanted surface to mount the pedals on. I don't have a case for it, so transportation is pretty lame. It's also really heavy due to the fact that it's solid wood, and has 8 pedals on with, with a power supply mounted underneath. I have a Voodoo Labs power supply, so it keeps the cords nice and neat. I suppose you could just use a normal power strip, but you'll end up with a lot of excess wires and it won't be as clean cut.

I plan on posting some videos of my gear soon, so I can try and remember to send you a message if you wanna see my pedalboard.

It cost me about $32 if I remember correctly for the boards, screws, and velcro strips (for mounting the pedals)

Do what I did

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1490716

Drafted up a design, bought the wood ($15), cut it with a saw, shaved it to correct lengths, wood glued and screwed it in together with self embedding screws. Never had experience with woodworking before either I had my old man give me a hand holding it together whilst I screwed it together but I'm sure you can find a mate to give you a hand

Yea I actually took a look at that thread before I posted mine. Alright thanks for the help. Hopefully my board won't become a total safety hazard haha. I just really want it to be a board/case as well just for easier carrying purposes which is why I want to make a pedal board anyways.

TOTAL cost less than $45.00, less the power supply which is a daisy chain type supply that I picked up at Musicians Friend for around $30.00

Send me a PM and I'll write up the instructions and plans...

You can get pretty cheap with it. Some pine, some nails, and some velcro will make a basic pedal board big enough for what you need for well under $50.

Absolute cheapest method: Cardboard and duct tape. I saw the band "Hooray For Earth" and lol'd when I saw the singer's pedalboard.
