Don't wooden posts usually go in the ground?

Floor-mat at the front entrance to my former place of employment. Oh... the irony.

The first one is a burl of some sort (the veneers I got were unsorted and unlabeled)
The second one is zebrawood (again, best guess)
I used some old metal letter stamps my grandpa had to strike the letters and painted them in white. The black letters are just sharpie and stencil.
Very DIY, but adds to the 'barn' aesthetic.
Just ordered a stamp with my logo so I can logo up the wooden pedals.

I almost bought a zebrawood telecaster about a week ago that would have matched this perfectly 8)

Both great looking pedals.

Great looking pedal. Now, some wooden knobs? And clear stomp washers?

I've built a couple. This one is a Maestro FZ1S clone



Red oak sides, and the metal top was cut from the casing of an old busted rack power amp.

And then this one is a Coloursound One-Knob Fuzz clone



Poplar left over from a guitar body. Just hollowed out from the bottom.

I thought these letters looked burnt. maybe you could heat those stampers, and brand the buggers! head-em up!



for some reason, this disturbingly reminds me of an old school desk.
winter. booo.

antonis, I won't call you an elephant, but what kind of screws are those in yr plank build?


(things like "what kind of screws did antonis use in his heavy-plate box?" worry me at odd times of the day. I do need to get out more often.)
winter. booo.

the add fuzz, from this thread, with essential mods.

http://www.diystompboxes.com/smfforum/index.php?topic=577.0


a simple thing, but only for the die-hards. not a spectacular performer, but it does improve greatly with the additon of a bazz, for instance. the choice of transistor sets the overall mood, the tone is set by the choice of output cap.



this build features a 3AX31C (thanks, itg63!), a pre 1980 CA741, and due to a lack of poles, the Ge millenium bypass, threaded elsewhere.





the wood is/are stressed case members, [sniff] not just dress panels [/sniff]. so, stictly speaking, not being "wood finish", another wrong threaded. though blonde, I call that jarrah; the red wood it sits on is jarrah, deffo. finish is (still a bit sticky/smelly) linseed in turps.





for completeness, this is the same box when it was going to be a samhay optical compresser.

thanks for looking.
winter. booo.

More than one way to skin a cat. It looks like you have literally too Duck Arse.
It has a bit of a Billy Gibbons feel to it.
Well done.
Only an Aussie would do such a thing.

DA-
People talk about fuzzes sounding organic- well I think you nailed it with this one. Can't wait to see that lizard skinned creation!

That should be one cold blooded fuzz! :icon_mrgreen:

Didn't Basic Audio already do a lizard skin? I know they've come out with some pretty snazzy enclosures.
