    After getting fed up of tripping over this mess, I decided it was time to get constructive.

    Needed something that was small enough to fit into an old attache case I had, but big enough to take the pedals and to allow extra room for a few more that I have on my shopping list.

    Am not the best when it comes to woodwork, so decided on something simple.
    Knocked up a frame and added internal battens to support the top board.
    All glued and screwed.... even recessed the screw heads and filled with wood filler.

    Grey primer

    Matt black final color.

    Top board screwed and glued

    Fitted the power supply to the underneath, so as to allow a bit more room on top.

    Cut a carpet tile to fit and glued this to the top board.
    Am quite pleased with the final result.

    And yes, it did fit into the attache case .lol.

    Yeah, you did the right thing. I just didn't expect to see it in a briefcase. Great idea.

    Needed something to protect it when not in use or when travelling.
    Found this old case in the attic and decided to make use of it.

    Put industrial strength velcro ( hook type ) on the bottom of the pedals..... sticks to the carpet tile like glue.

    New 'ABY switcher' pedal arrived yesterday, so decided to try a 'wet & dry' setup.
    Playing through 2 amps at the same time with different voicing on each. (added effects only on one amp... the other a straight sound.)

    Just have to change a few patch cables to tidy it all up.
    Sound is amazingly full..... a lot better than one amp.
