About

TimberCraft Cabinets started in a two car garage in April of 2013 by Morgan Hopfensperger. It was founded on the idea that the mass production of musical equipment had taken the heart out of the industry and disregarded the uniqueness of every player as an individual. It was based on the hope that guitar players valued craftsmanship over cost, quality over quantity. Just as guitar players carefully choose a guitar that reflects their style, so should all of their equipment. 

We aim to provide guitar and bass players with the highest quality, most attractive handmade speaker cabinets on the market, while honoring the craftsmanship that goes into not just our cabs, but all of the materials that go into them. TimberCraft values honesty and fairness in all business practices. We take fair trade seriously.  By working with craftsman, both domestic and abroad, we ensure that everything that goes into a TimberCraft Cabinet comes from workers who make an honest wage.

That's why we've partnered with Market Colors - a nonprofit organization that connects African craftsmen with American consumers.  Market Colors is dedicated to mitigating financial hardships and improving the quality of life of the impoverished in Africa.  These craftsmen specialize in textiles.  All of the grill cloth used in our speaker cabinets will be obtained from these craftsmen, through Market Colors.  For more information about Market Colors, visit their website.

If we meet our fundraising goal, we will will have the means necessary to manufacture our first run of one hundred speaker cabinets. Thus far, the speaker cabinets that have been built were done so with very few tools.  The funds raised through this Kickstarter campaign will be used to purchase the tools and materials needed to manufacture our first run, quickly and efficiently.

Risks and challenges

The risks involved with this business, as with any business, are difficult to forecast. One challenge I have considered is the possibility that those supplying my materials may face their own shortfalls, which would, in turn, delay my turnaround. If such problems arise, I can turn to one of the many craftsmen I've connected with since I started this project to come through. I have built a network of skilled artisans, and I always have the support of my friends and family who are willing to lend a helping hand at a moment's notice.

Also, when working with heavy machinery, I run the risk of cutting off my fingers. I am not currently aware of any source of readily available appendages. That would be a most difficult challenge to overcome. So there's that.
