Recently a friend approached me about designing and building a custom pedal board for her husband who's day job requires him to play and transport his guitar gear regularly. After doing some research to find out what goes into these it seemed like a fun challenge and I was glad to do it.
This piece turned out really well. I chose American Black Walnut for its natural beauty and the way it will wear as it inevitably takes on some knicks and scrapes. The powder coated black hardware will hold up well but not be visually overpowering. The custom handcut box joints add an artisanal detail that is very functional and adds tremendous strength.
