The DIY table ?


Tagged: , , , ,

Each gig you may have as a band may always teach you something… Last gig we had was so. This is the table that I use on stage for all my devices (computer, soudcard, desk etc…)

You may have noticed that there are many cables / sockets / power supplies around. This is that can makes life difficult when for some reasons I need to move all the stuff between the soundcheck and the show itself. This is indeed what happened at our last gig in Ipswich Library (UK). Therefore I had to find out a tip to solve this problem, that’s what I did today as soon as we got back from England 🙂

First, this is to fix the table feet :

in which I cut small holes in order to…

…insert a lower shelf as shown below :

Ok, as you can see, I have used various parts of an old chair and an old cupboard. But this has to fit in a (small) car in which you may still be able to sleep (with two guitars, two uds, a turkish saz, a fiddle, clothing for at least two weeks, a whole PA and a kid !)

Now let us have a look at the table in use, this is before the addition of the lower shelf :

And this is afterwards :

A close look from below should make things clearer 🙂

Now suppose I have yo move everything to quickly make room available for the band that will perform right before us :

And it works out !! 😉
