    I was off of work, had some scrap hardwood laying around from other projects, and decided to build myself a new board based on the PedalTrain Jr. design. It fits in my PT soft case perfectly.

    Walnut and Sapele wood, with a little mahogany color stain rubbed in. I threw a Zendrive on for scale.

    Looks sweet man. I love making my own board, although I always come back to my PT2 anyway, lol.

    Nice work.

    It gives me an idea. Next time I hear an upscale hotel is getting new pool furniture, I could turn the old ones into a whole slew of pedal boards:

    :D

    I chose these woods for their remarkable tone. I feel this combination lets the pedals' true tones be heard. Super warm, haunting, piquant support for my stompboxes. Highly recommended.

    :p

    When I finished the board, I kept thinking, "Man, this looks like something other than a PT."

    Thats exactly it! Outdoor furniture!
