No wires, no clutter. If you have one lets see it!
Latest pic of my pedalboard:
I think Pedaltrain boards assist you in making very neat boards ( is that what your asking ? What manufacturer makes neat boards? ) because the wires can be run underneath....
Here's my board as an example:
It can easily be done, it just takes a lot of time and almost always (to me anyway) requires the use of George L's. Pedaltrains are really great at it with all that space underneath. You can really create a good illusion if you're using multiple larger-than-normal pedals with it.
It just takes:
-matching cables (to the velcro or whatever surface color you use)
-Cable tie hold-downs (or whatever you might want to call them)
-Maybe some cable wraps
All of these except for the matching cable and time can be found in one of the electrical aisles at Home Depot or Lowes. I have better luck with Lowes.
A good example (from Pedaltrain's site):
The only problem is that you spend a lot of time getting it down right, and usually end up changing everything requiring new use of said materials.
Wow, that's very clean! Mine's a regular old Gator Case board, which I like since the power block is underneath. Makes for a nice clean power cable run. The trick is to get a good wiring kit for the pedal interconnects. I opted for the George L setup since the screw on 1/4" jacks are a genius idea and incredibly easy to work with.
I also might add that angle shots always seem to look the cleanest.
My wife tells me that when I come at her with the camera all the time
Truth! Here's an angle shot of my previous pedalboard setup prior to adding the analog delay:
Just when I got it that clean I had to add the delay and do it all over again too, just like you said.

ME!!!!!!!! put this in your pipe and smoke it scallywags!!!
im happy with mine Its a PT2
Chain: X2 Wireless/Guitar - ST-200 - Crybaby 535Q - 200lbs - DDSS - Occtone MKII - Katana - Amp
FX Loop send - Modulator - Reptile - DE7 - Verbzilla - FX Return
I used to have a Trailer Trash board. it was nice and took more effort to keep clean. I wired everything underneath for that too but the advantage with the PT's is that you can take things out on the fly much easier. With those type of boards, its a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge process!
Those last two look awesome!
Have a look here http://www.pumaboards.com/gallery/12inaction.php for a sampling of PUMAMAN's offering. Not my board, just an example. Clean, custom and an easy to deal with guy!!
I would concur.
These guys are true professionals and are doing most of the LA session scene as well as many pro touring rigs. David honed his skills at James Tyler Guitars and Martin was the man at Custom Audio Electronics for years.
Here is the board they did for me:
After a couple of OD changes:
Nah, it's not the angle, but the Fonzie Simulator that made this revision tops. Sorry, bro, but going from that to a Pinky Tuscadero?
I've always thought the T-Rex boards look really clean with the light wood look, but almost anything will look clean if you wire it neatly. YMMV!
LA sound makes some grgeous stuff! love seeing their work
Check this out!
j/k! I don't mind pedalboard clutter if I can sound like him!
