What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

What is Woood? / C’est quoi Woood?

A new dance? A mysterious animal?

Nothing like that, Woood is a handmade wood 45 RPM adapter.

Une nouvelle danse? Un animal mystérieux?

Rien de tout ça, Woood est un centreur de 45 tours réalisé en bois de manière artisanale.

Why a handmade wood 45 RPM adapter?  /  Pourquoi un centreur de vinyl en bois?

Simple answer : those made from plastic or metal are ugly. They lack personality.

At Woood, we love vinyl. Old ones, new ones, jazz, folk, rock, ska … There is good music, and there is good music on vinyl. It’s the next level.

A vinyl is not just about the sound. It’s also a ritual: finding the right record, taking the record sleeve in the hand, gently extracting the record, putting the record on the platter, positioning the tonearm. You wait for the first crackling noise, you increase the volume, you lean back into your sofa with your favorite drink… and listen.

To listen to your new 45 RPM vinyl, a rare find that you unearthed at your favourite record shop, you need a 45 RPM adapter. But the ones you have now are common: a generic black plastic piece just like any black plastic pieces around the world. You deserve better.  

We choose to make our adapter from wood because wood is classy, wood is beautiful, it's warm, each piece tells a story. Every grain on the wood and the craftsmanship applied to it make each Woood unique.  

Woood adapters are hand-turned by a local artisan. A guy who loves his job as much as you love your vinyl. As much as we all love music. 

At the heart of the artistry, there's a commitment to the product. A craftsman knows that good quality work is time-consuming, but that patience pays. Your listening experience is worth this sacrifice.

Despite the fact that it's handmade, all the dimensions required for the 45 RPM to function optimally are respected.

La réponse est simple : ceux en plastique ou en métal sont moches. Ils manquent de personnalité.

Chez WoooD, on est des fans de vinyls. Des vieux, des récents, du jazz, du folk, du rock, du ska... Un bon morceau est encore meilleur sur un vinyl. Un vinyl c’est du son, mais pas seulement.  

C’est aussi un rituel: trouver le bon disque, prendre la pochette dans la main, extraire délicatement le disque de la pochette, poser le vinyl sur la platine, positionner le bras. Attendre les premiers grésillements, pousser le son, se caler dans un fauteuil... et écouter. 

Pour écouter votre nouveau 45 tours, une pépite dénichée chez votre disquaire préféré, il vous faut un centreur. Mais le votre est tout pourri: un bête rond en plastique noir made in China. Ça vous gâche le plaisir. 

En bois, parce que c’est classe. C’est beau le bois, c’est chaud, ça vous raconte une histoire. Nos centreurs Woood, ils sont tournés à la main par un artisan ébéniste local. Un mec qui aime son travail autant que vous aimez vos vinyls. Autant qu’on aime tous la musique. 

Au cœur de la mécanique artisanale, il y a l'engagement pour un produit. L'artisan sait que le travail bien fait prend du temps. Et que la patience paie. 

Bien que la fabrication soit artisanale, l’ensemble des dimensions nécessaires au fonctionnement optimal avec les 45 tours sont respectées.

Le veinage du bois et sa réalisation artisanale rendent chaque Woood unique.    

How was Woood born? / Comment est né Woood?

I began by creating the plans of the different models in a 3D creation software.

Then, I had to find someone to carry out the first prototypes, hoping that he will understand what I was embarrassed to call "plans". I met Jérôme at the exhibition of creative crafts in Grenoble. He liked the idea and the possibility to be involved in a crowdfunding campaign. So he hand-turned the first batch of prototypes, then the second batch and now the final products that we are proud to present to you today.

J'ai commencé par créer le plan des différents modèles dans un logiciel de création 3D.

Ensuite, il fallut trouver une personne pour réaliser les premiers prototypes en espérant qu’il comprenne ce que j’avais honte d’appeler “plans”. 

J'ai rencontré Jérôme lors d’un salon artisanal.  L’objet et la possibilité de le réaliser par un financement participatif lui plurent. Il tourna donc à la main les premiers prototypes, puis les seconds et enfin les produits définitifs que nous sommes fiers de vous présenter aujourd'hui.
