So I've decided to take the spare plywood around my garage and make myself a little pedal board(hope my dad doesn't mind) because my cardboard boxes just don't hold up.

I've looked through here and looked at several of the different boards that have been built, looked at their basic designs, little extras they've put on their boards and all that. So, right now I plan on building a pedal board to hold 3 DigiTech stompboxes (synth wah, compressor and distortion), an Ibanez stomp (distortion), a Behringer stomp (overdrive), a Hartke Bass Attack (roughly 2 to 2 1/2x your normal digitech pedal width) and possbily a Boss (dist.) stomp or new EH Nano (Nano Muff)and a Wah(expression pedal).

My basic plans are to make a board with two levels. The bottom for all the distortion pedals and the Exp. Wah since these will be used more freqently. Then the top level will have my compressor, synth wah and Hartke since I won't be stepping on these as much. Along with the two tier idea I am also going to mount a powerstip right to it on the back for my power sources. I will also have metal handles on the outside and possibly a top to protect everything during transportation or when I'm just not using it.

So UG, I'm asking you to give me some crazy, over the top ideas for this. I want it to be one sick-ass pedal board. I saw one that had fur on it, that was gnarly. another have outlets right on the back, also gnarly. So any crazy outlanding ideas you guys have, throw them at me. After picking the ones I like best I will start the project and update this with pictures to show you all the progress.

The reason I'm asking for your ideas is because this crowd is probbaly, nay, definetly, the most creative bunch on UG.

Thanks in advance.

put carpet on it- then put the hook end of velcro on the bottom of pedals. it's the perfect idea.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.
