Greetings,

I’m calling everyone out – please help us promote our kickstarter campaign! We are funding a new lathe purchase and we’re hoping to use kickstarter to pre-sell some of our bowls, vessels, and turnings to cover our costs.

The link is below – if you can find a moment to post it on your FB page, Tweet, or otherwise share it with anyone who may benefit we would GREATLY appropriate it!

Details are in the link below – basically this is a ranked reward for backing system that allows people to offer funding in exchange for a return. We are offering turnings in exchange for backing. We’re shooting for $12,000 to cover a machine, upgrades in sharping equipment, accessories/tooling, materials to make the rewards, and project expenses such as shipping and packaging.

We’re also offering a DOUBLE your reward package … that means if you mention an active charitable foundation or organization (legit per IRS) we will send you your reward AND we will send a second of equal or greater value to your charity for an auction or raffle. This means you can not loose, and your charity wins too!

I have been researching and following kickstarter for quite some time. What I have noticed is the number of projects with videos that get funded greatly out numbers the projects without videos that get funded.

Good luck.

I would like to do a video on it eventually – but right now everyone is tied up in holiday fun and jobs, etc. My camera team / editor / director (friends) helped us out a lot with demos for Discovery networks and such, nothing ever got off the ground with that. I kinda need to pay back those favors for a while before we open up a new project with them.

Depending on how this goes, I may try this again in a different format. We’ll see …

Thanks!
