DracaWood Gaming came about when a friend of mine asked about a wooden box for a dice set. Since that time I have created various custom wooden dice boxes as well as leather wrapped "books" always on a one off basis.
Upon completion of one of the dice boxes (made of black walnut wrapped in red leather) it was decided that we needed a cool dice set to be placed in that box. This prompted a feverish design session that included creating full 3D models of the designs to see how they would look on red velvet (the box has red velvet inside of it). We were so excited about the outcome of the render we decided to do this project as an actual KickStarter project and share the dice with the world.
We are doing things a bit different in that we decided prior to starting the project we would go ahead and have the injection mold created and get a few sets in hand to verify that what we are going to KickStart is what we have envisioned.
We now have those sets in hand and are going to let them go (at the I NEED IT NOW backer level) at the completion of the successful funding of the Celtic Knot Dice project. The other backer levels will be available within 90 days of funding, or as soon as our molding contractor can fill the order and get them to us.
You asked for it and we are very happy to be able to be able to offer it to you - Celtic Knot Dice Add-Ons.
Thank you for looking and we hope you are as excited about getting these custom dice as we are.

Risks and challenges
We are so confident that these dice will be well received that we decided to fund the cost of the injection mold upfront. The dice in the photos are real. They are actual sample dice shipped to us so we could verify the mold and they look great! With the mold already done, there is no waiting for engineering or tooling, it is all already done.
So the two biggest challenges are how soon can the production run be scheduled at our molding vendor, and how long will shipping take. These challenges actually become larger the more successful this project is. But we have a good relationship with the injection molder and will work diligently to ensure production dates are met.
If issues do arise we will relay the information immediately to the backers and will do our best to keep you informed with any changes in planned shipment dates of November 2016.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
