Korean guitar pedalboard

Materials: Ikea Gorm shelves and planks, velcro, screws, brackets…

Description: I took the IKEA Gorm shelves and made a pedal board from them for guitar effects pedals.

1.) Buy the following masterials:

3 Gorm shelves
1 Gorm plank set (2 planks)
4 large l-brackets
8 small l-brackets
6 horizontal metal coupling plates
many many wood screws
Spray Paint of various colours, and primer/finisher
home-made stencils!

2.) Cut 1 Gorm shelf in half

3.) Attach each half to another gorm shelf using metal couplers and wood screws to make two 45 inch floorboards.

4.) Cut and attach Gorm planks to sides of one floor board using 8 metal l-brackets and wood screws.

5.) Spray paint primer and color for bottom board and top board (with stencils)

6.) Attach velcro to bottom board.

7.) Rock out!

    Yes the top fits the bottom. Since it’s 1.5x gorm width, thankfully the edge of it sort of tucks it in. I pull it all together two strechy cable things that you might find to tie stuff to trucks.

    I considered a hidden-floor deal for the power cords, but it would add more weight, and you wouldn’t get that ‘transparent crate’ look when transporting. If you have awesome suggestions I’d love to hear them! This is my second pedalboard, and should last me a while, but for v3.0 I can always take good ideas!

    If I understand this right you made a top that fits on the bottom of the pedal board? Anyway these could stay attached during moving it around? Did you imbed a place for power cords etc?
