Alrighty, got a ton of upgrade and been changing quite a bit of stuff on the actual design. I really thought about not posting these pics and start selling some of these boards, but kinda decided against it. I decided to set up the wood to match the two basses I have...a Callowhill and an Elrick; which are swamp ash (which I do sell) and macassar ebony. The top is angled and the pedalboard flat is actually bookmatched. Anyways......here are the first set of pics.
Bookmatching the pedalboard:
Preparing the macassar ebony edges:
Cutting and preparing the sides......which are also bookmatched!:
Wrapping the sides with the macassar ebony:
This is the angled front section of the pedalboard that will actually be able to be tilted after completion(to be able to connect the cables):
This is the angled piece that will be closest to the me(you can see another set-up behind the pieces):
This is the actual top for the pedals to set upon....it has been bookmatched:
This piece is actually for behind the pedals inside the board and I set it up to carry the grain through. This piece takes a ton of work on top to get the angles correct to match the swivel top(all the angles don't show up in the pic):
BTW: I sell swamp ash to many builders and here is a pic of one stack of ash I have......this is where I got my ash for my pedalboard!
