The carpet was not a stable platform for my bass pedals. I figured a pedal board would solve that problem. So finding myself in isolation I made one. The notches in the back of the board were intended to allow cable and power access. However, I did not plan very well and have decided to call this experiment one.
While it is not pretty it does stabilize the pedals making it easier to use them and extending the life of my cables. Mission accomplished. Now on to practice.
