  • Do-It-Yourself IKEA Pedalboard REDUX

    Here is my version of the IKEA pedalboard. 

    1

    Ikea doesn't seem to make the size of the GORM shelves anymore that were used in the original IKEA Pedalboard. It now comes in two sizes. I used the 30 3/8" X 12 1/4 ". They come in a 2 pack and cost $11.

    The pine they use now is garbage so no amount of sanding is going to help. They come in two packs so I used the wood from the second shelf as well.

    I didn't have access to a table saw. I used a small handsaw and changed the design quite a bit.

    I cut out a piece of the lip in order to fit the board that would act as the back leg.

    I added a board on the underside. This acts as support for the back leg as well as a shelf for loose wires.

    I drilled holes in the back leg to match the holes on the shelf and used the Ikea bolts. I also used Gorilla glue to hold everything in place a little better.

    I bored holes, painted and added the velcro. By coincidence the only color paint I had was orange. It would look better if I had used spray instead of a brush.

    I attached a powerstrip to the shelf on the underside with velcro. I didn't use any plastic ties.

    All wired up.

     

    I think in total it took about four hours of work. That doesn't include sitting in traffic on the way to Ikea.

      Thanks. I don't like this version of the Big Muff. I may sell it and get a Fulltone 69 MKII.
