Attempting to save some money!
Hard side Samsonite. 3/8" ash ply, aluminum J channel. Mattress foam. Dual lock.
How big do you need?
When I first made it:
Here is my BOG inspired homemade board. Just a plank of lacquered Poplar with feet on it
The pedals have changed a bit since this setup but the board is pretty cool.
Home made board with blue led lighting underneath.
Just posted this into the P&W pedalboard thread:
Here is an update of my DIY pedalboard:
Now I´m nearly done. I just have to wire anything up and then it´s ready for playing.
My DiY board:
I like the wood trim around the pedals.
Guess you are not planning on making any pedal changes ?
Post already exist here :
You'll find plenty of nice informations in there.
Bottom of road case is the "board". Risers for rows 2 and 3 are made from hardwood plywood. Finished in black primer for a glossless matte finish. Can't tell in the pics but it's got some nicks and thin spots that give it lots of character. Power source mounted under row 3.
I made mine using re-purposed aluminum from some awful 1970's closet doors. That is what the outer rails are made from. Some 1x4" and a couple of handles and I got some speaker covering that was being thrown out by a local music store. I have since moved the Pedal power supply to the bottom and added a tiny power strip underneath also. I probably spent less than 20 bucks in materials on this. Sometimes being a packrat pays off. This was a fun build.
I can make changes whenever I want - the bottom of each wooden trim has the velcro. I have made a trim piece for each pedal I own.
Going for a clean look -
I've been lusting after a Palisades which will require a rebuild or a second [sigh] board. A good problem to have.
Very cool and well done. BUT! Not trying to maximize space, are you?
Just finished up this board with my dad last week. Not the final iteration obviously, but it gets the job done.
This is sick. I love it.
