This is a guitar pedal board that I made for a friend, he plays in the church band and needed a new one. I would call this my first real fine woodworking project. I learned lots of lessons from this but all things considered it turned out ok. The main wood is quilted sapele veneer, (thanks to joe at veneersuppiles.com) the border is jatoba that I had to dye to get a reasonable color, all pieces are finished with satin arm-r-seal, the underside of the board has a foot that raises it off the ground at an angle and also conceals the power strip, I still have to drill the hole for the cord to go through. the splines are maple and the dowels are from the miller dowling system and worked very well. again, its not perfect but seems like it should do the job, I really like veneering and plan to do alot more of it. Critiques Welcome.
Update, the last 3 pics are or the completed board, holes drilled and dressed up with grommets, pedals mounted, seems to work great even though it weighs a ton!
