I got bored and made a temporary pedalboard a couple of weeks ago out of thick plywood and a 2x4 cut to 15 degrees I believe. The dimensions are like 12" x 17" I think.

Spray paint it black and throw some velcro on it, and it's not half-bad for home use.

I need to make myself a pedalboard, just to keep things nice and organized.

@DimebagLivesOn: yeah about 15 minutes...including finding the wood in my dad's shop

@sandman-105: yeah its called a Visual Sound One Spot. it works fine for my needs and best of all its one of the cheapest daisy chains out there. id rather pay $35 for this than $160 Voodoo Labs Pedal Power or whatever. but obviously quality is probably not as good but its not like im famous so ill settle for an average daisy chain lol. so to answer your question....get it!

@Mitchell?: i probably will spray it and velcro it when i have extra time. ive been really busy lately.
#9
imma totally do that now.
i just wish i had a shop

Tolex it


yeah i might do the plastic laminate stuff to make it look nice
but the spray paint velcro option might still stand idk yet
#16
drill big holes in it and pass the connector leads underneath.
#17
rout out handles (like that single coil rout shape) on either side for portability?

and maybe add a hinge on the 2x4?

still pretty bomb

Shwiggity.

but that would double the cost of the pedal and a $1 pedal board doesn't seem nearly as cool as a $0.50 pedal board.
Not taking any online orders.

Hey, if every guitarist at least made the effort to patch their pedals together and stick them to a bit of plywood, it'd save valuable minutes on every setup. Nothing worse than waiting for your lead player to patch it all together on stage when you've got 10 minutes between bands.

I like it! Nice and simple, I would tolex it or print some design on it some how but as CorduroyEW said, it won't be as cool as a $0.50 board.

that used to be me, I would come with my pedals and cords in a wal-mart bag to a show. but I'm all better now pedal boards really do help alot more than I thought they would definatly something worth buying or in most of our cases, building

Build one of the ones in the tutorial thread instead. I did. I'll post pics once I mount my pedals.
#28
you could rout a small divit the shape of your pedals so they stay in there and then put a cover to hide the cords that you could remove and such

thinking about doing that this summer!
#32
Awesome. I did one similar which was cut to fit in an old laptop case, though I spent an extra £3 or so on velcro tape and little rubber 'feet' to screw on....

Quote by forsaknazrael
Cool! You gotta go for broke on your next one. Mine has breakaway hinges for the top part of the case, a handle and strap, corner protectors, rubber feet...and has some badass looking color scheme with the tolex, to boot.


i wanna see!!!!!!!!

I wanna buy some carpet for the inside and mount my pedals before I do anything. I'd do it today, but it's raining fairly hard (for San Diego) and I hate driving in the rain if I don't need to.
