Sorry, no funny epicness in this unfortunately.

...and it didn't turn out as cool as the original legendary one that started it all. I just needed a larger pedalboard and though it'd be cheaper to build it.

Enter fresh wood.


Mask...ahhhhhhhh!!


I was thinking of green, but I saw "hammered texture" spraypaint and the chairs on the label looked cool but.... turned out to look like the glitter color you see on carnival rides...


So I went back out and got GREEN


Fresh box of Velcro and New 1 spot day!!


These bolts were bigger than I expected.


Wish I had a router so it'd sit kinda flush.



Velcro'd! I put the wirey side on the pedalboard and put the cloth side on the bottom of my pedals. If I ever use a pedal away from the board, I won't have to worry about picking thread and garbage off of it before putting it back on here.


nuther velcro shot.


Old homemade pedal. I had an old shelf that I just cut and threw some velcro on, $1 handles from Home Depot, and foil tape on the front! Supa ghetto! I put it here to show I needed more room.


A lot cleaner looking (can't find my other mini patch cable) with the 1 spot connector freely available on the Ashdown Compressor. (embarrassed at cheap nady wireless)


Routing underneath. Might as well use velcro here too. And yeah, cheap sticky rubber feet until I find black screw-in feet.


Oh yeah, here's the link for the original gorm itself.
IKEA | Heavy duty storage systems | GORM system | GORM | Shelf

If you haven't heard of this before, google for "DIY Ikea pedalboard." Best one is on the harmony-central forums I believe.

Came out great. :yesway:

EDIT: Oh, also... if you wanna recess those bolts later on, you could use a spade or forstner bit in your drill and it'll work just as well. :yesway:

Thanks for posting this, I'd been completely unaware of the ikea pedalboard thang... this inspired me to go and throw together:


Now I just need to make some sort of carrying bag for the beast!

Yeah, I scour craigslist hoping the right kind of hard case gets posted.

Awesome dude. Your pedal selection is unusually similar to mine

Looks good! :yesway:

Why mask the wood though? I'd assume the velcro would stick to the spraypaint all the same.

Ahh, I did that as a "just in case" type deal. I'm sure it would've stuck, but if it some part accidentally peeled back, I figured it would take the paint with it.
