This is a recent build for a customer in Bowling Green, KY.

He is both an electric and acoustic guitar player and wanted something with a darker wood.

The Santos I got from a local place that makes custom staircases. They have a whole warehouse full of gorgeous wood and a lot of different kinds.

I decided to sandwich strips of clear pine to add a little accent to the piece. Working with this Mahogany was really fun.

Thanks to everyone who gave me advice on the finish (polyurethane with gradual finer grits and ultimately 0000 steel wool).

Great pedal board! Can I assume that the top lifts off for access to the power supply?

^ I leave the bottom open. That way the player can velcro the power supply to the underside of the deck. There’s a power strip adhered to the back panel which can accept about six plugs. Thanks man!

Thanks David.

I’ve made them out of some different materials but haven’t tried PB. However I wouldn’t mind giving it a try. Might be a cool surface to stain, sand and then epoxy. I think it might look like stone.

Did one out of 3/4” black pipe this year. Had to learn how to weld for that one. :)
