This is a pedal board I made for myself. I figured that as a woodworker, a rough looking piece of quarter inch plywood just didn’t look very woodworker-ish. So, I got some cherry and a piece of walnut together, and designed this one around how I wanted my pedals configured, as well as providing some protection to them while I’m traveling. The hardware is all brass, and the dovetails were cut with a Keller Dovetail Jig, which I really like. I decided to do a second level instead of a slope so I could have some storage under the top level for cables and things like that. I really don’t like the slanted designs because I feel like there’s a lot of wasted space. Plus, it was easier to design and build this way, keeping things as square as possible! I added some grip tape to the bottom so it wouldn’t slide around. All of the pedals are held down with velcro. The finished product works very nicely, and gets me a lot of exposure as a woodworker while I’m playing my guitar.
Thanks for looking!
