Today I finally had a taste of success. I had decided to switch to bent aluminum because it would be easier to achieve the form I desired while still being easy to produce. As much as I liked look of bent plywood it was not the right process for a kickstarter campaign. Im excited with the current direction and can't wait to see where it goes from here.
Also wanted to give a huge thanks to my neighbor Dave Schott for helping me get my prototype produced. Among the favors I will forever owe you, this was the biggest!
