I am assuming effects pedal boards are overpriced, and it would be cheaper to make your own. What would be necessary to build a sturdy board which you can also plug your pedals into for power?
#2
Plywood
Car floor mat material
Velcro
Screws
Trim metal
Patch cords/pedal couplers
Power supplies

How many pedals are we talking here?
...
Please do not insinuate anything sexual from that.

a pedalboard can be a piece of plywood that you put your pedals on, or...

you could go all out making a frame and a plexiglass board, with LED's and a built in power supply... haha it really depends what you want...

but like Iansmitchell said...
thats about all it would take for a standard DIY board
