My son, Cody, is an aspiring guitar player… He needs a pedalboard to house all his effects pedals…

If you’re not familiar with these, check out this link…

First of all… he can’t find one EXACTLY set-up the way he wants… So, WHY NOT BUILD ONE???
I started it this past weekend…
We sketched an idea… Gonna make it a little oversize for expansion… The overall box is 18” x 28” x 10” tall. The majority of the box will unlatch and be removable, leaving the base with the pedals mounted to it…

Enclosed box with the corners rounded

I glued the box together, and rounded the edges… Next I’ll cut the lid off the enclosed box, and mount the hardware (they’re just sitting on it now)

Almost forgot to mention… I’m building this out of some Plasitic laminated plywood ‘stuff’ I’ve had laying around… The sides are 1/2” and the top & bottom are 1/4”... The sides are scraps from my son, he installs bleachers in High Schools, and this is some leftover scraps from a bleacher job… The top & bottom are also scraps from a local company that makes stages & platforms…

More to come…

I’m also a guitar player. I’m going to bug you for details when you finish. Looks good so far.
