    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.

    I like the wood trim around the pedals.
    Guess you are not planning on making any pedal changes ?

    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.

    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.
