Hey guys I'm looking to start building a decent sized foley pit for my studio and would love to hear from anyone who has done this before. I know it's mostly just squared off blocks of wood with different textures filled inside but I'm wondering what else I could do that would get a lot of use. Let me know if you have had any experience in this thanks!

Planning. Draw your design get the measurement. price of wood adds up fast, especially when you buy extra. it shouldnt cost more then about 300-400 for the wood for an 8foot by 2 foot pit. not including the tiles, terrain, and whatever else you want to put in the pit. also a good idea to make it in sections when you can lift a door to get to a tile, that way you have the entire 8x2 top to do footsteps etc if needed.
