    I don't post much here in pedals - I'm not much of a pedal expert. I'm usually hanging out in amps or guitars. I have been building some amps lately and had leftovers from recent cabinet builds that I decided to put to use in building a new pedal board with a black face vibe.

    The sides of the pedal board is 3/4" pine leftover from some cabs. The bottom is 1/2" plywood. The top is 3/8" birch ply leftover from speaker baffles.

    A scrap of leftover grill cloth for the top.

    I put latches and a BF style handle on the front,

    I couldn't find split hinges, so I made some with my dremel tool.

    Fender style chrome corners on the bottom with rubber feet so it won't slide.

    You can see the pedals through the grillcloth.

    Opened up, the top removes to expose the goodies.

    That's a Polytone, Keeley 2 knob compressor, Zendrive, Fuzzface, Crybaby, a BYOC Phase Royale and Analog Chorus and a MXR Carbon Copy analog delay. Pretty basic stuff.

    That is awesome! Thats one of the most unique takes on a pedalboard I've seen! People will know you mean business when you walk into a gig with that and a matching amp. Would a matching guitar case be going overboard?
