My cheap CNC machine has cost me far much more than money at this point… but with some recent progress on the machine I have made some progress on my D&D Dice vault design! With more woodworking over the horizon, it’s time to check in again on the CNC machine of my nightmares…
So you all probably saw the other day that I mentioned a new product coming to Kickstarter… this is why I’m hoping to use the platform to case Remove Curse and rid me of this original CNC. Creating the Dual Vault is something I’m oh so very excited about! So much so that I originally teased this design all the way back in November of last year!
Since that initial post I’ve been refining my process and building up relationships with local hardwood vendors to make sure I can stock this design in some of the finest exotic woods in the world, including Walnut, Purpleheart, Wenge, Zebrawood, and more! The design is set, albeit increasing in size a bit to account for my newer dice sets, and the vendors are in place, now it’s just time for the capital to make everything happen and to upgrade my workflow to match.
This is why I’m turning to Kickstarter. I’m looking to upgrade from a machine that makes 1 vault in about 3 hours to a one that can make three vaults in the same amount of time- with deeper lids that will actually function as a mini rolling tray, laser engraving for personalization, and so much more! This is a big endeavor, and I’m super excited to get started with this sometime in February, once we finish the 20d20 giveaway!
This isn’t the first Woodworking project I’ve taken on, you might have noticed two new DM Screens for preorder in the store already, and this is just the beginning. I am all about creating not only dice sets, but great places to keep them, roll them, and hide your secrets running the game. If you want to know more about all of this, I suggest joining the mailing list so you’ll know when new products and the Kickstarter go live!
Until next time!
