Why Start With Bow Ties?

I have been wearing the prototypes out for about 4 months and it's something I'm always complimented on. People ask me "when can I get one?", "will you be making them?" I have thought a lot about the first step for me and Sanderson Design, it's all about risk mitigation - some of my ideas have skyrocketing potential but also also have a high level of risk - for example a bicycle concept could be hugely popular but may result in injury if not engineered correctly, I have confidence in this product because of its simplicity. Some of my ideas require electronics and mechanical engineering so I will explore those ideas when I can generate enough funds to do so - So please help me get going ;)

My Goal :

My goal is to - once the project is funded and roll out is completed - use any remaining profits from this and other low risk projects to fund some more daring, technologically advanced projects. It's all about taking the baby steps I need, to learn and grow as a designer - Each time a project is completed I'll continue to manufacture the product as long as it is in demand this way I'll eventually offer a wide range of products under the banner of Sanderson Design :)

The Rollout Schedule :

I'll be working tirelessly to keep on track with this production schedule - Any hiccups and you'll be notified :)

Risks and challenges

Although this product has a simple appearance - The manufacture process is far from simple and there has already been some challenges - I have worked hard to refine my CNC cut files to minimise inaccuracy but wood is a natural material and is prone to inconsistency. My solution to that problem was to source timbers that had the best machining properties in the colours I wanted. I have selected the above timbers as a result of that testing - I feel as though I have already faced many of the challenges but when I'm presented with more challenges I'll treat them with the same problem solving attitude and find the solution to get to the end result.

There are always risks associated with manufacture and machinery. Machines have the tendency to break and halt production until repaired. What you're purchasing here is the opportunity to be a part of the journey I'm going on and to get a reward at the end of it. If I have a manufacture difficulty I'll document it and share it with you as well as the steps I took to solve the problem.

If the quantity is much larger than anticipated that would be great, it simply means I'll acquire the machinery and staff to complete the project.

You'll receive updates at every milestone I encounter so I hope you're ready and happy to take this journey with me :)
