    not mine...this is a friends though it's doubtful with my lack of skill for most things that require building and patience that i could do any better...i saw this a few days ago but just now noticed the nails holding the effects in place...it's crude and ugly but apparently works for him, though if i ever get a windfall of cash I'd be tempted to buy him a real pedal board and send it to him anonymously.

  2. Haha, maybe we could put together a donation pool here at TB and at least send him some Velcro anonymously. :)

  3. MY first board was about that primitive but I used pieces of wood molding glued and tacked in place to hold pedals in position. I knew one guy that used a long screen door spring to hold pedals in place. But we are talking way before self adhesive Velcro aka hook and loop was even available outside the military, come to think of it the first time I got Velcro was at Academy back when it was an Army Navy Surplus store in drab green.
