    I wanted a small board that looks like it belongs in a living room and not a bar, so I threw this together over the last few days. It's just stained pine and about 5 coats of Tru Oil. I hand cut the dovetails, and they came out pretty good. There is one that has more wood filler than I wanted, because I cut the chamfers on the wrong side :oops:. But overall a success I think! The cutouts for the power supply are 1 1/2" furniture cable pass throughs.

    It has a PP2+ underneath, so it's nice and quiet. I just picked up the Superdelay last week, and it is a lot of fun. I usually have a DM-2 and a big box DMM on my board, because I like to have a slapback and a long modulated delay available without too much knob twisting. I was hopeful that this could cover both of those needs, but knew that nothing sounds exactly like a DMM. The tape mode on this is really pretty pretty pretty pretty close. And the flexibility is nice to have. After using almost exclusively analog delays for years, I forgot how fun a nice pristine delay with a long feedback is.

    Here are the photos, friend-os.

    Nice work Jon Danger! You may have the only hand-dovetailed pedal board in existence, your joints look clean, and it fits the decor nicely. You also have a real quality selection of pedals on it too, not much to want for there.

    Very nice work. I can't imagine anyone not being proud to have one in their living room (or any other room).

    That looks really nice & better than some of my living room furniture.
    I wish I could borrow & try the Honey bee OD someday.. ;)
    Your choice of pedals is also very functional.
