this afternoon i built these pedal boards for imaad from some scrap wood and carpet that i had laying around the house. it all came together really quickly and easily. it helps to have a table saw hand for quick cuts. imaad picked up this nice green suitcase at a thrift store on hawthorne today and it was the perfect size to fit all his pedals. we used little rubber bumpers to the back edge of each board, both to elevate the back edge and to keep the boards from sliding on the stage. little things like this that can save you time on set-up and tear-down can really make a big difference in helping things run smoothly.
