I built a pedal board for myself in 2005, but there are too many problems with it to mention here. Some of the major goals for this new board include: *ease of transport (wheels and handle) *hiding all the spagetti wiring (keeping it neat) *ease in set up with as little bending as possible *functionality: ease of pedal usage, outlet for an external fan *stability Design: *The pedal board surface lay at about a 20- 30 degree angle and 24" wide X 15.75" deep. It would be made from two 1 X 3 and four 1 X 2 dado with two 1 X 2 to the far right and left *The surface will rest on the base of the exterior box and hinged between the back of the pedal surface and the back of the bottom half of the exterior box. *The bottom exterior box will have another 3-4" to the left to plug in my tuner, Eden amp controller, one wired bass input, one output to the amp and a male electrical jack for the power. *The bottom exterior box will have a single female outlet on the right side for an external fan (for me) First picture in the next posting showing a paper layout of the pedal board surface with my pedals.
