I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

My projects are labeled Quantum Effects. My shared OSH park projects: https://oshpark.com/profiles/m-Kresol

this looks like a great link, thank you for the  quick response, I have only made a few pedals but used pcb boards from byoc and would like more of  a challenge. I bought a grab bag from another member and one of the items was a klon encloser and I have all the parts so I will give this a try. I also have lots of veroboard so I am looking forward to many more builds. Thanks again for the link

I build pedals using veroboard layout. Tagboard is a great source, but also Sabrotone, then I search on google, but just if I find something more than verified.

I read all about the pedal where I got the layout, all I can find in the web about the schematic and the mods.
Sometime I use socket pin to try different part (resistors, caps, transistors, ICs...).
This method is ok for me.

Tagboard, Sabrotone, Paulinthelab, occasionally DIYstompboxes.  I build on vero more than anything else.

Remember to flip the layout horizontally when making the cuts and links!

The vero layouts are 'component side up' so the cuts should be done to the other side (the copper side). I flip the layout in Photoshop and black out the cuts with a marker before drilling. And don't drill all the way through either... Just enough so that the copper lane is broken.

Another method that I read about in an Osbourne book when I was 10 (and built a c64 controlled vero robot circuit board from, man that was cool) was to print the layout out at 100% or whatever and stick that to the vero.  Poke holes through the layout for your cuts, flip over and there they are, ready to go.
