Pedal Board Advice
I'm in the process of designing a new Pedal Board, I have been shopping around and am looking for companies in the UK who can provide me with a custom build (Like Trailer Trash but in the UK) I have found the Sgt Pepper Boards but am looking for any other suggestions on companies I could check out.
I am also pricing up my cables etc and need to know where I can buy custom length cables for powering pedals from a VoodooLabs Power Supply. As the board is going to be quite large, I need options on length and I can't find anywhere that can help me. Any suggestions would be welcome.
I hope you can help me.

If I were you I'd probably make a cardboard cutout of each effect and then arrange them around and see how much space I'd need. Something like this come be also done in a graphics program (something like Corel Draw, Photoshop or even freeware graphics editor like Gimp) as long as you keep the right proportions, you can draw squares for the effects and shuffle them around then you'd see how much length you'd need. Also keep in mind sizes of car trunks, etc. that you'd haul the stuff in so you're within limits. For example, m last car purchase was 30% based on whether it will fit a 4x12 Marshall 1960 cab in the trunk.

Absolutely. I bought an XL flight case which was on offer. Great price, built like a tank, holds all my gear - couldn't get it in the boot of my car along with my other gear (ended up on the back seat so not a dissaster but it did mean that it was on show).

For power, you might just be best off buying this, and using the cables that come with it. You get a selection of different length cables with it, from something like 8" to a couple of feet.
If you want it done real nice check out thegigrig.com, they do some great work and they do a range of quality power supplies. They use generally use Lavas too.
