The Story

Hey Kickstarter! My name is Bobby and I want to create rough and rugged dice. Being a gamer, I grew tried of all the perfectly machined, shiny, cook cutter dice that everyone seems to own. So I got a few blocks of wood and went to work..

I first cut Big burn dice from premium maple slabs selected for their grain patterns and to give each one a heavy, sturdy feel. After they're cut, I light up my torch and give each a deep burn color. D6 markings are then carved into the wood to show the true color underneath. The dice are then coated to protect the color and resist water damage, for years of gaming

Materials and Production

I chose to make Big Burn dice out of premium maple wood because maple is a quality wood that gives a nice finish when burnt. The markings on each die are carved into the wood to give the dice a natural and rustic feel. A clear-coat is then applied to keep Big Burn dice looking great after years of gaming.

All production is done in my woodshop in NJ. I have all the tools necessary to make Big Burn dice a success. Lets make it happen!

Risks and challenges

I have materials to make a sizeable amount of Big Burn dice. If orders exceed my expectations, I have allocated places where I can quickly get more materials to meet deadlines.

I will do my best to prevent any delays associated with needing new material once funded. Additionally, I will promptly ship your order as soon I can and make any delays or challenges known.
