I have now filled a fourth box of short pieces from a inch or two up to maybe a foot.  Any good ways to store these, or do you toss/burn them or do something else?  They can always be used for a brace, a bridge or nut or whatever.  I feel like a hoarder but I hate to toss them.  As always, if this was discussed before sorry in advance.

That is excellent Rose, might have to copy that

Wow thanks Darryl. I am working on putting it into a PDF, I can pass it to you when I'm done if you like. Or I can give you the dimensions so you can go for it. LOL there are no rules !!!!

I'd love to learn how to do that.

I will try to take some pics while I am assembling it. Also I will try to run by the copy shop and run off a few of the original plan. Let me see what I can do.
Here is the pedal I can get you the plan if you still would like it!

Thanks for sharing, looks great and sure looks like it would be a good way to use a bunch of wood pieces.  I am not sure if I would make one myself though as I am severely rhythm challenged!

Well I am making a couple of sets ( suitcase, pedal, foot snare) I will see this Christmas if they sell. I'm gonna call them Busker kits.

I'd love a copy of the plan, if you don't mind sharing.

Absolutely will share this, if you can wait a week or so I have 2 more ideas and wanted to write this options into the plan. I was looking online and the first drum pedals were wood. They were REALLY low profile. So I want to add them and then I can send you a PDF file. You should be able to print them out to scale. If you need them sooner let me know and I will send you just the one. Also do you need the foot snare plan?

Awesome!  I can wait, no problem.  I'd LOVE the foot snare plan too!  You rock!

You are most kindly welcome!

nice looking pedal, how do you keep the suitcase from walking away?
