Be Seduced by this "Western" Wooden Marble Maze



What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Everyone loves a good sci-fi western. Between seasons, follow your heart and play with this mysterious maze to pass the time. This project is ready to go and just needs your support. I'm only making a very limited run of these.

I'll be carving these about 8" in diameter from top quality select kiln-dried pine and staining it dark. It's 3/4" thick and will come with three stainless steel ball bearings.

These will be engraved by a CNC router here in Baltimore at the Baltimore Node Makerspace. They're then hand-sanded smooth, and stained dark.

This is my fifth project here on kickstarter. I'm confident that I'll be able to get these into your hands before the end of February. It is a quick project with a fast turnaround time. I have everything I need to get started and just need your support.

Thanks for looking, and as always, please share this project with others. 

Thanks again, 

 Todd Blatt

Risks and challenges

"They" might get mad and force me to not make these. If that happens no money will change hands. I'm only planning on doing a very limited run so here's to hoping that doesn't happen, but I think we'll be okay.

I'll be able to complete this project without relying on anyone else, so it'll all be on me.
