Ah, dice towers... some people like them, others don't.
I love them and I’ve been making dice-towers for decades using cardboard, wood, plexiglass....
I believe BTCs Functional Art - Dice Tower is best small-format dice tower available, and if you like dice towers you are gonna love this one.
Here's what customers are saying about our DIY kits:
"A few weeks ago, I walked into my local game store and discovered your frankly Excellent dice boxes on display at the counter..... I cannot begin to express how wonderful these are. The design and engineering is incredible, especially for coming from a laser cut flat sheet. The boxes seem very strong, and being able to store dice within the box while closed is fantastic. I'd been looking for a dice tower but never found one that quite lived up to what I needed."
Initial wood selections for the custom towers are:
You will be able to select a primary and a secondary wood type. The primary choice will be used on the outer front and back panels and secondary choice will be used on the rest of the dice tower (see the photo of our walnut and maple tower for reference).
Choose two wood types with contrasting tones, or pick just one type as the primary and secondary if that is your preference, up to you.
First Stretch Goal $4,000 CNd
If we reach this goal we will offer a set of 11 additional graphics. These are posted in the updates section.
Second Strech Goal $5,000 CND
If we reach this goal we will also offer African Padauk and Mahogany. Both of these woods beautiful choices and broaden the selection palette into the reds.
Risks and challenges
The dice towers are fully designed and while I'm already able to produce DYI kits, and small-run completed towers, some additional tools need to be purchased and/or produced in order to deliver fully assembled kits.
At the moment, completed towers are hand assembled one at a time. In order to speed up production, clamping-assembly jigs need to be fabricated and this process has already started.
In addition, the kits are sanded down manually with an orbital sander. I'd like to purchase a drum sander. A faster laser cutter would be nice if the Kickstarter raises enough funds.
Other than these hurdles, we are golden. This Kickstarter is about seeing if there's interest in this product and raising funds in order to purchase and produce tooling so that these units are manufactured in an efficient and timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
