    I'm building one today out of a old fender palet and a old music stand. Lol. I also have a hard pedal case to put it in. I'm going to mount a surge protector in it and maybe lights. I will post pictures.

    Thanks, I've been making boards & road cases locally for awhile now and really enjoying it.

    Not precisely "homemade" as much as "repurposed"... I glued some velcro to an old briefcase my dad had and it works very nice. I'm thinkin of drilling holes on the side for the 1spot cable, but I don't wanna ruin it so maybe I can reuse it properly later :D

    My take on the GORM pedal board plans with some random pedals thrown on. You can't see in the pictures, but I added 1 inch feet that were made by cutting down two 50 cent plastic shelf brackets from IKEA. I painted it to look like it was made from pieces of the TARDIS. :hyper:

    If your pics are too big, resize, or host at imageshack and link the jpg with the img tag button at top of posting reply window.

    Here's my first board I made a couple months ago. I gave it to my guitarist buddy because I want to make an integrated board that uncouples from my rack head. I'll post some pics when I get it done....

    After receiving my myco three and WMD geiger counter last week, I've had to retire my homemade board and start using my SKB PS-45 again. :( That myco sure is a big pedal...

    I took a piece of 1/2" MDF I had laying around and just ripped an inch of it off, glued it underneath to get a little angle on it when sitting on the ground, and then covered the top in spray adhesive and then fuzzy velcro strips. I highly recommend using spray instead of gorilla glue or nothing if you're attaching velcro. Simple, cheap, and I don't feel bad retiring it for something bigger. I am *very* interested in making a new larger one to replace the tank that is the PS-45. I already have a travel case for my own board so I don't really need the protection (and weight... yikes) that the PS-45 provides.

    I'll post pics when I get around to building it but it will hold:

    TLC comp, channel switch, MXR octave deluxe, woolly mammoth, mojo iron bell, ezekiel, myco three, geiger counter, EB expression pedal, boss bass eq, DC brick, and a line 6 m5. Hopefully a HOG2 in place of the BOD... one can dream.
