About

Hello, and thanks for checking out our project.  We're so happy you're here!

Our plan is simple - collect enough orders to make a bunch of these lighted turntable sculptures at once.  Then wash, rinse, and repeat in the near future with other unique designs we've been dreaming about.

Imagine how sweet it would be to have a set like this hanging in your living room over the couch.  Or on the wall above your bed.  Or behind your bar. Seriously, you need these.

Like?  Your friends are gonna want a set too, so please pass the word along any way you know how (Facebook, Twitter, and other links above).  We're known as:

Wait, what are these things again?

The sculpture is meant to resemble a pair of Technics 1200's and a Vestax mixer that our buddy Ryan (DJ Dodgy) was spinning with back in the day.  It plugs into a 110v wall outlet like a lamp and casts an ambient glow on the surrounding wall.  Don't know what that means?  Who cares, these things will look amazing in your apartment anyway!   

They're made of wood, acrylic, and LED lights.  Yeah, they're impressive.

How do I buy one?

We set a goal to raise $30k by 11/20/11, which will allow us to hit the low price point we want to offer you, our customers.  Our Kickstarter project must be fully funded before its time expires or no money changes hands.  If we reach our goal by the deadline, we'll begin manufacturing and delivery to everyone who clicked the green "back this project" button at the top of this page and pledged support.  If we do not reach our goal, nobody's credit card gets charged.  So if you want one of these you have to make a pledge before 11/20/11, be sure to tell your friends to make a pledge, and encourage them to tell their friends too!

When will they be ready?

Generous backers can order rush processing with delivery guaranteed before Christmas.  All other rewards will be delivered no later than the end of January, 2012.  Let us know if it's a gift and we'll send a personalized card with the image below to the recipient of your choosing in early December so they know what Santa's bringing them early next year:

How much do they cost?

All pledges of $5 or more include an invitation to a private online community where you'll get to view illustrations and descriptions of all our future design ideas, discuss them with other members, and provide feedback to help determine which one gets produced next.  We value your input and want to produce artwork that makes you happy!  We'll also proudly display your name on our website as contributing members of the wood+light design panel community.

  • Refer 5x $175+ and we'll send you the holiday cards & a poster or T-shirt
  • Refer 10 or more $175+ pledges and let's talk about what we can do to make you feel appreciated!

Wait, I can't afford any of that.

Are you sure?  You've probably spent more than this before on one night out, but now you regret it because you don't have anything to show for it.  Imagine if you spent that money to fund this project instead and you got a totally unique piece of art in return that will be the envy of all your friends.  Go for it!

Are custom colors available?

We've tried every color in the rainbow and think red looks best, so we're going with red LED rope lights to get volume pricing in this production run.  If you want another color please contact us and we'll find a way to accommodate you.

Where are they made?

We are working with several different fabrication shops at this time, all of which are in the USA.  Each turntable lights sculpture is made in a state of the art wood shop like the one pictured below.  They are produced using a combination of CNC machining, other precision tooling, and hand assembly.

What's next?

Based on feedback from the online community we'll either launch another kickstarter project with the most popular designs or sell them directly through online and retail stores--join our community and then follow us on Facebook for the latest on this front.  We currently have over 20 other well thought out designs within the same wood+light theme, and counting.  Mark is inspired by electronic music, retro 50's/60's product design, modern architecture, and mechanical stuff, while Nanda likes rainbows, mushrooms, and everything round and cute.  So some of our designs appeal more to girly girls and some are playful kid-friendly designs, but each piece is always hand made in the USA and engineered to keep you partying like a rock star for 50,000 hours or more!

Got more questions?

Thanks again for checking us out!

Big thanks also to DJ Maggie for the soundtrack!  Much love, Maggie.  We never get tired of listening to Cactupillar Kerfuffle...
