About

We are Goliath Wood & Gifts, your one stop shop for handmade wooden gifts, gadgets, and gizmos that everyone is sure to love. We specialize in unique handcrafted items from only domestic and exotic hardwoods. 

We have a strict no stains, colorings, or color treatments of any kind so the natural color of the wood stands out. We apply only a nice clear lacquer to the wood to preserve it for years and years to come.

Introducing The Goliath Wooden Cube Collection 

We think of wood as nature's art. Each piece is different and yet still very beautiful. We wanted to show off the beauty of these hardwoods by creating a line of cubes that can be displayed as art or played with by the world's finest gamers.

 ------------------- Sizes of cubes -------------------- 

 We offer cubes in 4 sizes: 3/4 in, 1in, 2in, and the Goliath 3inch!

**Note on cubes 2 inches and larger you can choose for us to round over the edges at no additional cost.**

 ------------------ Types of wood ---------------------

We offer 20 standard wood choices for our cubes. Our Core Woods Our Core Woods We also offer specialty exotic woods that will be randomly added to the rewards as the campaign progresses. Be sure to check back often to see what we are cooking up. Who knows, maybe you will see something you will just have to upgrade to! Some teasers include possibly: Cocobolo, Ebony Gaboon, Black and White Ebony, Mopani, Ancient Bog Oak just to name a few.

 ------------------ Why Kickstarter? ------------------ 

 We believe that Kickstarter is a fantastic platform to launch our new cube collection because of the range of people it can reach. For example we can reach cube collectors, art and design lovers, and even the awesome gaming community. What will the funds be used for? We will use the funds to purchase a new laser engraver and also to expand our existing website and business. As a gesture of our appreciation for your support we are offering Kickstarter only pricing and we ship all of our products for free in the USA. 

 ------------ Custom Engraving Add On ---------- 

 Any one of our cubes can be custom engraved for an additional fee. You may provide the image file or tell us what you would like. Costs for this are as follows: 3/4, 1in, 1 1/2in, and 2 inch are $0.50 cents a side The Goliath 3 inch cube is $1.00 a side These costs simply just cover the use of the laser engraver. Here is a laser engraving sample done on some Purpleheart. We used the Goliath logo for this.

Risks and challenges

Our shop is fully equipped with all of the tools we need in order to produce these cubes for our backers. We may or may not have slight delays due to the unknown amount of support we will have. That is a good thing though because we can batch out the cubes in large batches. We will communicate weekly or bi weekly to our backers through updates to keep everyone in the loop. Please let us know if you have any questions.
