      Nevertheless, that sounds like a great setup for what it costs.




      I read a lot about noise, but I had them configured in such a way that it made sense to have each set of pedals on their own onespot. I also didnt wanna power 6 pedals off of one onespot lol.



      I just bought the 3" thick or whatever it is velcro strips from home depot. Its like 10 bucks and you get a ****************LOAD of velcro. I find that the thinner strips dont stick as well as the thicker ones. Its like a sticker....just peel off the back and stick the adhesive side to the wood. Use the opposite side on the pedals. You can cut it to whatever measurements you want.

        It's not difficult at all. I would suggest 1/2 or 3/4" plywood depending on how big of a pedalboard you plan to make. 1/2" would be fine up to maybe 18" wide. I used cabinet handles from Lowes on either end, and 1/2 round trim around the edges. Painted flat black, and set up with Velcro. One suggestion: put the velcro "teeth" part on the top of the board, and the "pubes" part on the bottom of your pedals. That way, if you are moving your pedals around, they won't stick to rugs, scarves, carpet, etc.



        Not the best photo of the pedal board itself, but I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

              I think this place and the regular ass reemings he's taken have done Nick some good. He seems to be a bit less on the drooley side of average intelligence these days. I think he'll be fine.

                I like the cut of your jib, my man. We should encourage him to use power tools.

                    I bought a 3 dollar gorm board from Ikea. Screwed a riser to the back to slant it. Painted it black. Covered it in velcro. Ziptied a power strip underneath. Used onespots to power things (had one for the stuff in the loop, one for the stuff up front). Worked pretty well. Sold it to Billy. Also, bought a bag for it.

                      Buy the "industrial" velcro from Walmart in the Crafts section. **************** is no joke. Your pedals will not fall off using that stuff.



                      As for the board, it's not rocket science...Plank of wood, 1x2 or 2x2 of lumber cut to length as a "riser", paint black, slap velcro on...done.



                      But yes, use a table saw without the protective guide, it gets in the way...A router after you've put nails in the edges you are routing. This ensures the bond between the boards will hold after routing, and gives the nails a cleaner look.

                            +1 for wally world industrial velcro. That **************** stays on unless you're really trying to get it off, and it doesn't leave any residue.
