Risks and challenges
One of the biggest goals of this project is to get the proper tooling I need to make CR45 at the level of quality it deserves. The frames made with the current tooling have been off enough in terms of accuracy to put undue stress on the welds. This means that though the chair looks good, there are forces trying to pull it apart at its various connections. The new tool should correct this problem entirely.
Another challenge will be finding a welder that will do the job well as the company I used to work with is no longer operating. I have contacted another local company that is up to the job, but if the quality is not what it needs to be, the challenge will be to get another test welded by someone else until I find the right person to work with. I have built $1,000 into the budget for this contingency, which is enough for multiple tests if necessary.
Once funded, I promise to keep all of my backers regularly updated on the progress of the project. There will be a lull in production as I will be attending Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia for the six-week fall quarter, and away from my work space in Omaha. After this I have a six-week winter break, during which time I will be back finish the production of the chairs and ottomans. I appreciate your patience with this timeline!
