So, I've been looking at pedalboards lately, and they seem prohibitively expensive for what you're getting. If I could bend metal, I could easily make a Pedaltrain for a couple bucks! Anyway, this got me thinking about making my own pedalboard. I decided on wood and planned out my board last night. Here's what I've got so far. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated! This will likely be a LONG project, so I make no promises as to the regularity of updates. I don't even have woodworking tools! (My father does, and he's an engineer, so I'm hoping he'll help. Without him, I probably won't be able to do this. Maybe I should get around to asking him...?) Here are the main features I wanted out of this pedalboard: Fit all my pedals, with room for 1 or 2 more in the future. Fit my soon to be arriving MB200 on a riser for home/headphone practice with the board. Have some storage underneath (capable of holding a powerstrip) A travel case. I've currently got all of those included in my designs. Here's how I have them implemented (in case my blueprints don't make it clear): Storage Underneath: The mounting surface will have a hinge on the lower end, allowing the entire surface to lift up and store items. Fit my pedals: all of mine fit, and I should be able to squeeze in the Fdeck I'm looking at getting in the near future. The MB200 will fit on the 8x8 riser on the top left of the board. Travel case: It is designed to latch together to make a sort of suitcase for travel. OK gentlemen, let me know what you think! Is there anything I should add, change, remove etc.? Do you have plans that were amazing I could use? Any specific handle I should buy for the "suitcase" handle part, or for the latches that will actually hold it together in travel? Where would be a good place to get an electrical outlet to fit in the hole on the side? Or should I just run a standard pedalboard and an extension cord? Is there some plug I could put in there during travel? Any and all comments and assistance are welcome. Thanks in advance, everybody!
