Risks and challenges
After I created the very first Woodspeaker, I made a few others, so I could fine-tune the production process as a whole. Although it is still handwork, the usage of custom-made molds and clamps have already made production much more efficient.
The Woodspeaker is very special to me, so I’ve made it my goal to complete every step of the process with the utmost attention to detail and craftsmanship. Most of these steps, including design, reclaiming materials, woodworking, and finishing are well within my expertise.
However, other aspects, such as promotion, packaging, and further upgrading the production process are new to me, so I’ve done a ton of research in those areas, as well as spoken with experts to find the help needed to get those things done.
Why I need your help
Currently, I need to raise €7.500,00 to cover the costs of making the Woodspeaker a reality. Specifically, the money would go directly into renting a workshop, further updating the production process, and packaging, as well as buying tools and materials for production.
In the time leading up to this campaign, I have tested several different methods of manufacturing and made prototypes of the Woodspeaker to ensure I really understand the process. So, when this campaign ends, I can immediately start creating your Woodspeaker!
Any money raised above my goal will be used to establish the Woodspeaker more permanently. My dream is to create a full-fledged brand around the Woodspeaker—one that stands for environmental and responsible manufacturing, not to mention honesty and openness.
In my opinion, Kickstarter is the perfect platform to launch such a thing. I have the knowledge, the ambition, and my goals are set, but I need your support to really get things started. With your help, I can make this dream a reality.
