IKEA SNIGLAR changing table

I needed a quick and cheap way to carry on all my effects pedals in one case and just plug 3 cables, one from my bass to the pedals, one from the pedal chain to the amp and the power cord.

Since the kids have grown up we didn’t need anymore the changing bed (although I was using it as a storage cabinet), I decided to hack it into a pedal board case.

Just cut the legs, put some hard foam in the bottom and soft foam with fabric on the top, 4 removable latches on the sides, a handle and we’re ready to go!!
