    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.

    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:

  10. 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.
  11. Or go under your quota, lol.
  12. 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.
  16. Nice board man. How do u like your smallstone? What's ur opinion on it? I can't decide between it, or the Bad stone..
  17. The Gorm is a famous one, two size available from Ikea, built the big one while ago for my guitar rig , would now have the smaller one as my bass flavour requires lesser artifice.
    Would keep from those left to right :
    DOD compressor (white)
    Boss XT2 Xtorsion (Red)
    Paralooper (Gray) - this one has no low pass filter for guitar use would need to add one.
    Also add my Digitech Bass Synthetizer :)
    Here the thread from Harmony Central that gives loads of infos on this homeMade pedalboard :

  18. Here is my re-purpose pedal board.An old chassis from a Randall combo amp and some angle stock I had left over from another fabrication project.The chassis needed modifying,bending some parts,and adding holes and expanding some already there.Two coats of DuraTech I had left from a cabinet re-furb put a decent coating on the chassis.Rubber feet and Velcro added and it's ready for pedals.
