About

(*If this product launch is successfully funded here, then part of the proceeds from all post-Kickstarter Puzzle Trivets sold by GNG with Autism Speaks engraving will go to Autism Speaks!)

Hi, my name is Brad.

I own and operate GNG (GameNightGeek, llc), a micro-enterprise based in Columbus, Ohio through which I design and build designer and custom wood furniture and accessories. GNG has recently begun expanding from being focused solely on products and services for Tabletop Gaming enthusiasts, like specialized gaming tables, dice trays, game borders, etc., to also developing items such as this Puzzle Trivet & Coasters set. We have much more planned as well. Some things we are about to start focusing on in addition to gaming include Convertible and Space Saving home and office furnishings, custom engraving services (CNC and Laser), and products made with 'live hinge' pattern cutting designs...

This Kickstarter project is meant to serve two purposes:

1) The main purpose of this campaign is to launch this Puzzle Trivet & Coasters product.

  • If we reach our funding goal, GNG will be able to reward backers at pledge levels of $20.00 or more with at least one of these unique, laser cut, highly heat and water resistant wooden trivets, each of the four puzzle piece sections of which can be used as a stand alone drink coaster. Orders shipped within the continental U.S. will pay nothing extra for shipping.
  • You can choose between a few pledge levels that let you specify a custom written engraving for your reward. You can also choose the Autism Speaks engraved version shown. Or, you can choose a non-engraved version for a smaller pledge amount.

*The above images are from the 'rough' prototype. I actually dumpster dived this particular section of wood from my shop to save $. This is hot off the laser cutter and not even sanded. Yours will look much nicer! But before you can see the final product, you have to help fund it. ;)

2) After this Kickstarter concludes...and this product has been launched and listed for sale at GNG...then we want part of the proceeds from future purchases of the Autism Speaks engraved version shown to go to Autism Speaks, a prominant Autism research, awareness, and support organization (www.autismspeaks.org)
  • Autism Speaks has provided an official letter supporting us:
*Funds raised for AS occur after and if this campaign succeeds.
*Funds raised for AS occur after and if this campaign succeeds.

I invite you to help us launch this new, fun, and unique wood Puzzle Trivet. Either version, custom engraved or otherwise, makes a great gift.

Thank you,

Brad

Risks and challenges

GNG has launched three successful Kickstarter projects prior to starting this campaign. There are always unexpected hiccups, delays etc. However, each time we do a Kickstarter we get better at avoiding and mitigating potential problems. I also learn better ways to design a campaign for which the rewards are easier to produce and ship quickly and efficiently.

It is always a challenge to estimate dates by which rewards will be available when you have no way of knowing how many you will need to make. But I think most pledgers to projects like this understand that these estimates are really only that, estimates.
