“Guitarists use lots of gadgets sometimes. One of their favorite gadgets are effects pedals. They come in all shapes and sizes and colors, and they usually are stomped on to activate. Well, I was at Ikea one day a few years ago and noticed that the Gorm shelf would make a really nice cheap pedalboard. This is my most recent.
A lot of guitarists have caught on. There’s a thread on a musicians forum dedicated to Gorm pedalboards! (One of them below, via Harmony Central) Some people even paint them but the same basic pattern follows. Cheap Gorm shelf, Velcro, and voila! Pedalboard. Cheap, sturdy, awesome.”
