Hey Kickstarter!!

My Kickstarter project is about making something new and exciting out of the ordinary. By combining two of my favorite hobbies—gaming and woodworking, and by borrowing from the natural beauty of nature, I’ve created the ultimate gaming dice! My goal is to gather enough support to finance the materials necessary to produce these custom, handmade dice, and further develop my line of natural, individualized gaming products.

I am dedicated to developing products that will enhance the everyday articles you use by crafting them into artistic works. These dice, straight from nature by way of my workshop, lend new life, energy, and beauty to the games you love most.

All of my dice are worked finely by hand, using only the most beautiful, top quality exotic hardwoods. These dice are perfectly suited for anyone, from the most humble players to the most competitive. Wherever you fall on that spectrum, let these unique creations reflect your personality, style, and good taste through a multitude of different colors and grain patterns.

Because my inventory of woods offer such a wide array of different colors and grain patterns, each die comes out as an artistically unique masterpiece. Unlike any others of their kind, these dice have a presence of their own, and can evoke an old world feel to any game—adding a new depth and excitement to your gaming experience that both you and your friends will enjoy. So, go ahead, change your atmosphere! Make a pledge and help me embark on this journey of creation.
