Hey Everyone, my name's Chad.
For the longest time I've had essentially 2 passions:Video Games and Woodworking. My entire life I've been influenced by woodworking by my family and friends and have always been around tools and love to build. During High-School I also learned a bit of carving/widdling/sculpting. As far as video games go I have many favorites but "The Legend of Zelda" has always been my top pick.
Since then, I'm the proud father of my little 18mo son and have another bundle on the way. Times have been a bit tough since my wife has not been working and I've been a bit distracted with work and fatherhood. I've been trying to find myself and finally, I've figured it out. Combining both passions. I plan on making tons of different Zelda inspired wooden items. At the moment the current project is all Ocarina of Time medallions.
You're contributions to allow me to start this project would mean the world to me because not only would I be doing what I love but it helps my entire family to continue to grow and get my small business off the ground one day.
What We Need:
So to break it down simply, the funding goal is $600.00 and will be used for the following:
-$200.00 for wood material (I get it inexpensivly so that can get my quite a bit)
-$400.00 for equipment which includes:Dremel tool bits, Electric Jig Saw, Clamps, Paints, Stains, etc.
I've always been good with my hands and this project will be a perfect chance for me to showcase to the world my talents and make these medallions truly incredible with depth and complex angles.
If I don't reach my goal of $600.00 the funds are all still going to be used towards materials and equipment that I need. I would use what I get to save for the tools I need to start this as soon as I can!
What You Get:
Any donations are welcome of course and here is what I can do for you if you do. Obviously they will get better with time.
-Donations of 20$ or less: $10.00 off any Medallion
-Donations of $20 - $50: $30.00 off any Medallion
-Donations $50 - $100: $40.00 off any Medallion
-Donations over $100.00: FREE Medallion
Gamers love games and this gives me a chance to make parts of a series many love to life. The Medallions will be scale replica of the ones in "Ocarina of Time" and will be collectible. I'm also making some custom special medallions as shown above. Being able to do this will certainly contribute to the world of collecting game articles and is gonna be lots of fun!
Remember, even if you can't donate, ANY help is incredibly helpful. If you like my idea and would like to see this made please Share this project to Facebook, Twitter, even right on this website. Anything is highly apreciated =)
Thank you all again for stopping by!
