Designed to replace a simple piece of 3/4” plywood based pedal board, this one is 6” shallower front to back, and is based on 1/2” scrap plywood that has been clogging up my shop since I picked it up off my lawn after Hurricane Ike. Construction is very straight forward just Titebond II and screws, finish is what I had in the shop, Rustoleum High Temp BBQ matte black brush on paint, it took forever to dry. I am using 2” Velcro loop side on the board, the hook side is mounted to the bottom of my pedals. Cables are managed completely on the underside of the board with velcro straps through slots in the middle support board.
This board gives me better cable control, room for a couple more pedals, while managing to take up a smaller footprint, AND be overall lighter in total weight.
When I first assembled it, I thought the 2 boards butted up without a gap would be a concern, turns out, it’s not. The more I use it, the happier I am with it.
I need to sew up a transport sack / gig bag for it, but overall it is done. So far I transport it by wrapping it in a moving blanket.
