Made a bigger board. Used 1x6 cut to fit for the edges and 1/2" crezon plywood for the top, which is fully sheathed with Velcro. This allows me to place pedals anywhere and drill holes where required for cables and cords. I can also mount utilities underneath with plumbing strapping and 1/2" screws. 6 screw-on rubber feet completes the basic board. This is an inexpensive way to make a versatile board. I had all the materials laying around the shop and only paid for the Velcro. I would recommend something smooth for the top so the Velcro can adhere properly. A piece of melamine shelving would do fine. If anyone plans to go this route, I would recommend drilling your holes with a spade bit that has points at the ends as a flat one tends to tear up the Velcro. Installing the hook strips to the board is a good idea but the proper drill bit will also work on the loop strips. Hope someone finds this useful.
