[IC] Simple Corian Wristrest Project (40% to Full Size)
« on: Sat, 21 March 2020, 13:33:51 »
Hello all! Thank you for visiting! :) I am a small business owner in New York City who manufactures anything from custom exercise equipment to cabinetry! I stock, work with and cut anything from Solid Maple to Aluminum to Corian.

Recently I noticed excess Corian sheets lying around my shop, and was thinking about complimenting a few boards I own.

So without further ado, I present:

THE SIMPLE REST
From 40% to Full Size boards and everything in between!

COLORS:

Corian does blacks, greys, and whites well. Vivid colors not too much. I have physical rests on hand in multiple colors, but am not using these colors for the final pieces. I will be using Modern White, Gray Onyx, and Deep Black Quartz (pictured in hand, below).

Modern White goes incredibly well with E-White or other white ano/ plastic builds.
Gray Onyx has a slight opaqueness effect to it that matches polycarb builds.
Deep Black Quartz adds galaxy-like volume to any board, going especially well with sandblasted black or black ano builds.

SPECS:

Currently I am awaiting feedback (please fill out the IC form!) to see what form factor is most popular.

[IC] Google Form: https://forms.gle/cXpaDnEJXyGTfHnm9

Some things to note:
-40% boards can use a 60% rest (will be just a tad larger, about 1/4").
-65% rests will work for most 75% cases.
-TKL (80%) rests will work for 96% compact layout cases.
-Full Size is huge, well done for having one :)

SPECS:
.5" height, 3.5" width. Length varies. Small rubber bump-ons will be added to one side of the rest to slightly increase angle, as well as provide a sturdier feel.

SAMPLES OF THE SIMPLE REST (early production, unfinished):
Please note these colors are NOT being used!

238225-0



FINAL COLOR OPTIONS (will have production samples made in the coming weeks):

238229-2
-Modern White
238231-3
-Deep Black Quartz
238233-4
Gray Onyx

Samples pictured with E-White (Sirius), Black (NYM96), and Poly (Tofu60)

PRICING:
Price will depend on two things:
-Color
-Size

Corian has different groupings for their colors. Modern White, Deep Black Quartz and Gray Onyx are all different groups.

Thus, pricing is as follows--
 
Modern White:
60% (40%): $35
65% / TKL (75%, 96%): $40
Full: $45

Deep Black Quartz:
60% (40%): $40
65% / TKL (75%, 96%): $45
Full: $50

Gray Onyx:
60% (40%): $45
65% / TKL (75%, 96%): $50
Full: $55

PRODUCTION QUANTITY

60% (40%): 12 per color
65% (75%): 10 per color
TKL ( 96%): 10 per color
Full Size: 8 per color

Extras will be available after GB is complete.

SHIPPING:
As of now, contiguous United States only. If there is enough international interest I will ship worldwide. Please fill out IC google form!

VENDORS:
This will be manufactured and shipped by me. When the time comes to bill everyone I will include shipping costs in your invoice.

TIMELINE:
Currently in very early stages. A few production samples have been made. In the coming weeks we will have more samples to show. Stay tuned!

Thank you!

Thanks for everyone who has submitted an IC form so far! Just a quick update: NY state governor has mandated all non essential businesses to close for the time being (includes me sadly). I won't be able to produce early samples for the final colors (all 3 will be made) as of yet, but hang in there.

Stay safe! <3
