Turn-Around time

Hey all - It's summer, school is out, the kids are home, and the 4th of July is now over so family is no longer in-town.

Things have been hectic lately, so lots of stuff fell behind schedule and I apologize for that.  Turn-around is currently around 6-10 days after the order is placed.  If you need your order for a specific event before that, make sure to leave a note when the order is placed and I'll make an effort to get yours out in time.

The old messaging system that I had setup expired and is broken, so I'm looking into getting a new one set up.  Sorry for anyone whose tried to get a hold of me lately during the transition.  

The whole cookie cutter thing has died down a lot in the last year, and as a result of getting fewer and fewer orders, I've put more and more of my focus into the woodworking side of my business and it tends to demand a great deal more of my attention as a result.  It's been picking up, which is the biggest reason that the 3D printed objects have fallen behind.

I've got a youtube channel up featuring some of the laser cutting wordworking stuff I get up to for anyone curious -

Back on Track!

I've actually been 'back on track' for a bit now, but didn't want to make an announcement until I was sure I could maintain it.  :)

In any case, the turn-around time is back to a much more reasonable 3-7 days. (Depending on the day of the week you place your order).

Big Delays!

Many apologies but there are some big delays right now.  I've been snowed in the last two weeks with occasional ability to travel and receive packages.  Supplies that I've ordered have been days-to-weeks late getting to me, which has in-turn delayed my production and outgoing shipments.  

On top of that, school has been canceled thanks to the gym roof collapsing under the weight of the snow.  So my kids have been home and antsy from being cooped up so much.

And if that all wasn't enough, my garage where my 3D Printers are kept, that I generally consider very well insulated, has been a freezer thanks to the sub-zero temperatures outside and the 2+ foot tall wall of snow on the other side of my garage door.  This caused all of my prints to curl and get ruined for several days until I was able to get out of my driveway again and get to a store and buy a space heater.

So it's just been one thing after another this month - 2017 is clearly off to a great start :P

Anyway, I'm doing my best to get things out as quickly as possible, but I'm definitely behind a lot.

Again - my greatest apologies for the inconvenience this has caused anyone else.

New Year - catching up but still behind

Turn-around time is still a little more than a week at the moment.  Not only did I get a tremendous number of orders over the course of December, but I've also been snowed in and the post has been delayed several times (leaving me short on supplies and having to wait extra time for them to arrive.)

 

But I'm slowly catching up with the backlog and since the number of orders I'm getting is finally going back to normal, I've got room to catch up.

 

If you place an order for something that is especially time-sensitive, please make sure to say when you need it by in the Notes section of the checkout page.

Seasons Greetings and hello delays!

So it's that time of year again where everyone suddenly realizes that making cookies for holiday events is awesome, so all at once, everyone starts ordering from me.
What this actually results in is BACKLOGS!  Ack!  Oh noes!
I especially feel bad about it since people are placing orders in hopes of making things for holiday events, and if I don't get them out in time, then the order might go to waste.  No one wants that. 
But it doesn't change the fact that I only have so many printers and so many hours in the day.  So what's the best way to guarantee you'll have your cookie cutters so you can make cookies for thanksgiving, christmas, hanukah, festivus, yule, saturnalia, kwanza or what-have-you?  Well the best way is to order them EARLY!
Seriously.  Right now the turn-around time is sitting around 7-10 days, and it's only mid November.  It will only get worse and more and more people start ordering all at the same time.
The past few years, by the time x-mas rolled around, the turn-around was 2-3 weeks - it got that bad.
So keep that in mind!
Order early and you'll guarantee getting your things in time.  And remember, if you do order some of the lasercut stuff, like clocks, chests, etc. - that stuff takes even longer to make and I'm getting a TON of those orders right now on Etsy, so I'm actually super backlogged with those too.

Going to PAX!

Hey all!  I wanted to make sure people were aware that I'll be out of town for the first week of September to attend PAX West in Seattle.  This will cause a delay in any orders placed during that time-frame.

How to assemble the Zelda Skyward Sword Chest Kit

So I've got a Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword Chest - but in a kit form that you can assemble yourself!  I figured I should put up some "instructions" on how to put the thing together, since the order you put the pieces together does matter

The pieces are 2-parts.  The 1/8th inch thick plywood that is the actual assembly part, and then the 1/32nd inch thick plywood that you just glue on top, which is pretty self explanatory, so I didn't include that here.

I recommend using wood glue to put it together.  I usually make a puddle of wood glue on a piece of plastic wrap or a ziplock bag and use a toothpick to dip into the glue and then smear it into the notches.

Anyway, the product is on my etsy store if anyone is interested.
