always improving

We're perfectionists around here and there had been an issue that's been bugging us for a while. Even though you can't see the bottom OF the bottom once the rack is assembled, the seam wasn't as clean as we'd like. Well a friday brain storming session came up with this answer and now the felt on each rack is sewn and then slipped (pulled really) over the bottom leaving a perfect seam. Huzzah!

Rustic Alder...

So every once in a while we'll hear about something interesting through the grapevine... this time it was one of our lumber suppliers. Turns out they had glued up and surfaced a large order of Rustic (aka Knotty) Alder and while they were doing it the customer went out of business.

So they called us and asked if we were interested. Turns out they glued them to the exact size we needed and frankly Rustic Alder is pretty much our favorite wood out there. I'll be honest, we are wood FANATICS and the grain, knots and other "imperfections" in Rustic Alder is right up our alley. Well it came in today from Eugene Oregon so we wasted no time cranking out a set of sides.

We were able to get enough planks to do 25 racks. Check it out in our Web Specials

Roll Out....

Something new we cooked up today. This is a super rough mock up but it conveys the idea. Same pinned system as our Pedal Display Rack but with a roll out shelf instead. This is ideal for people who already have pedal boards and just need a place to store them or lots of cables and miscellaneous items. Production models would match our racks and would have a black shelf and black drawer slides.
