We will be going live on the 20th of July, at 5PM EST (2PM for those of us in California) to answer questions and show you around the Monk shop! We love meeting our fans even if it's just online so if you are able to make it, we would love to chat!
You made it to the first stretch goal too! This unlocked 3 new woods, Ash, Elm, and Lacewood.
Ash is one of the best woods for laser cutting and we use it quite often. It's stable and some of the patterns and colors can really be surprising.
Elm is one of the newer woods we have started working with, but it can really have character that reminds you of something a fantasy weapon would be made up. With characteristic wave-like grain patterns, it's a sight to see.
Lacewood is a unique wood. It's really more of a bunch of wood types that are quarter sawn so that the flecking pattern is more pronounced. The light and dark areas of the wood dry different, and can sometimes land you with a piece of wood that feels like it has scales on it. Pretty neat!
We also want to let people know that we will have a small presence at Comic-con in San Diego. If you want to see a prototype dice box and tray in person, make sure you find the area where everyone plays the tabletop rpg games and ask about us (Thinking Monk).
Thank you all again!
Till next time,
Teejay and Max
