Hi there! Thank you for checking out my Kickstarter campaign. I hope you enjoy the pieces I've brought you this time around. I can't take any credit for the idea though.... several of you have requested that I create something like this. So, thanks for your requests! It was fun doing the math and building the jigs for these!
On to the business portion of the description AKA the "Why" of the campaign. Most of you know that I've been building my Etsy shop and slowly tooling my workshop using funds from both there AND my Kickstarter campaigns. What you don't know is that my dream is to travel the convention circuit to get my name out there a bit more. To do that, I need a few things.
- 1. Assistants/Employees that can fulfill orders and build inventory while I'm away at conventions. (I have 2 people that I'm training, but it's tough to trust people to care as much as I do about the quality of pieces)
- 2. A surplus of ready inventory to carry with me. (I need at least $10k in stock minimum)
- 3. Initial funds to cover the cost of tables/room/travel to a few conventions (I expect the conventions to eventually be profitable enough that they'll become self sufficient)
- 4. And this is more "Want" than "Need", at least with the current demand for my pieces. I need another Laser cutter to speed up production of the cut pieces I use when I build pieces as well as a new CNC machine that will help me spread my wings into a few new product lines.
This campaign and all future campaigns I run will be used towards that ONE goal for me. Thank you so much if you choose to be part of it!

Risks and challenges
Having run several successful campaigns so far, I'm ready for just about anything that might go wrong. The items on this campaign are all made by hand using my table saw, then engraved using my laser. There should not be any setbacks. Every campaign I've had so far has been fulfilled within 1 month of ending.
I have multiple suppliers lined up just in case this campaign explodes and will begin building rewards during the campaign live on my stream to ensure fulfillment ASAP.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
