That's awesome, I like the Silver color, looks like it turned out great!
That is a nice looking board!
Hey quick question on you're using the longer board: was one support beam down the middle on the underside enough to stop the bowing when you step on it?
here's mine! - work in progress
I am still trying to decide what to do with the back panel before I paint this.
The rest of the board was painted using some sort of high durability enamel, safety red. I had to handpick the ikea gorm part since a majority of them had the individual planks that were not parallel to each other.
Staples sells industrial velcro that has really strong adhesive on it.
Recently upon getting ready to fly with my Gorm I realized I had a problem.My airlines doesnt allow electronic items to be checked in,so they need to be carried on,and carry-ons need to be less than 56cm long.The gorm is 50cm [19.5''] long,so a case had to fit perfectly.Initialy the small wheeled carry on cases with pull-out handles looked perfect and the dimensions where right,but they all have rounded corners so the stock gorm wasnt even close to fitting.
I was about to shave off about 1.5'' in width and 1'' in length from my Gorm when I came across this funky,30 year old faux leather bag. So I would strongly recommend finding the proper bag for your gorm before doing anything else.And remember,if you are mounting a wah pedal you will need additional height clearance,mine is 8.5'' tall with a wah,so the aluminum suitcases are too shallow.
And speaking of wah's, heres a tip.Even 3m dual lock doesnt always keep them in place,so I mounted a couple metal brackets below and used long black tie wraps to hold it onto the dual lock.
What a great idea! I had been wanting a cup of Swedish meatballs anyway!
I used a:
Gator power brick:
Zoom A2 (for tuner and acoustic simulator),
modded Blues Driver,
Electro Harmomix Memory Toy (can work as a chorus too!)
Carl Martin Surf Trem,
and a Boss RC-2 looper.
Room for one more! Maybe the Spaghetti Western fuzz? ! ?
Meanwhile the R&D dept at Ikea can't understand why these shelves are flying off the shelves.
Good idea. Thanks for taking the time to post the process.
I threw a quick version of this together last night...i have not seen anyone carpet one yet. Bad idea to do so?
Seems the soft wood(yep, I wrote it..) would be well served by being covered with some material other than just paint?
Here are a couple of more recent photos of my rig and pedalboard:
The unlabeled gray pedal is a "Leeds Fuzz" (Univox Superfuzz clone) I built last summer. I still need to decorate it. The Tech21 Boost RVB isn't used with my Ampeg Gemini I since that amp has its own reverb that slays the RVB, but I do use it with my Orange TT. The Blues Driver is my clean boost.
Here's mine...for now.
Guitar -> Boss TU-2 -> MXR Dyna Comp clone -> Barber LTD -> Rangemaster clone -> '69 Fuzz Face clone -> EA Tremolo clone -> MXR Carbon Copy -> Boss RC-2 -> Amp
Bought the case at a local thrift store for $4.00 couldn't have asked for a tighter fit. Mushroom included.
Thanks for the inspiration Bronco.
Getting one soon!
What you get is the undeniable IKEA vibe. For cutting up scrap wood, you don't need a table saw. A hand saw will do just fine.
On mine, the wires are all on top. I like the under-the-pedals wiring. Think I'll try it! But with holes, not slits. I built mine to fit in its "case, a suitcase I found in the trash.
Less $ for pedal board = more $ for pedals!
Love it man! That case was heaven sent too. Thanks for sharing, and cool board and pedals too, thanks again armchair bronco for the design concept.
I recently made my own, but not with ikea, just some wood I had in garage.
I will post some pics soon, but the concept here helped me along the way.
Good stuff, and hardly any cost involved. Still need a one-spot to power, but should have it soon. A new amp got in my way!
More to come once I get the One Spot wrangled. Feets are going on too.
hey armchair bronco
congrat on the write up you got it was a great idea you had , many people made pedal board like youre's after you posted here me included...lol thank's again man :0)
here's my pedal board made from left over wood I ad at home the only thing I bought is velcro and carrying case + pedal hahaha :0)
i love it i need to get to ikea and save 100$ now i can get a fulltone
Thanks for the idea! I have started a board myself based on yours and will post more when I complete it!
I did a variation on the design a couple years ago.
