Assuming you haven't got a workshop so who is actually doing the manufacturing?


Thanks! I have four primary contracting partners in different parts of the UK who can fulfil orders from my blueprints. All of them are independent artisans/joiners who are really grateful of the work, so the company supports small businesses!

My new business has now launched! Collectors' Cabinets sell bespoke, museum-quality display cabinets for investment grade collectibles, starting out with Pokemon cards.

Please check us out and follow on socials :D http://collectorscabinets.co.uk/

They look great, really impressive stuff. Makes me wish I had a collection of anything actually worth displaying like that. Best of luck with the business!

Just one thing from a UI perspective, while browsing on mobile, if you use the links at the page footer, the Our Products link just takes you straight to the cabinets page, with no indication that there are other product types, unlike when you use the hamburger menu button. I know it's probably not the intended method of navigation, but it's potentially obstructing users from viewing all product types if that's how they click through.

That's a good spot - I'll have a word with my designer to see if there's a viable fix.

Did you design the blueprints yourself, out of curiosity?

Beyond my skillset I'm afraid. The 3D models on the site are a product of a few months of work between me and a talented carpenter in achieving my vision. Those models were then sent to another joiner who has made blueprints that we've got patent protected.

That's really sad.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Killing yourself to tell people about your kid :fp:

Who gives a strawberry float what sex it is?

Literally nobody which is what makes this so tragic. Gender reveals parties caused the fires last year too in CA.

The premise of the song 99 red balloons is some stray balloons drifting over a border and accidentally triggering a war. Make the balloons pink or blue and I'd probably believe it happened.

Why have gender reveal parties even become so big? Is it just another idea come up with by retailers to get some more money from folk?

It’s a sad story though.

How else would people find out if an unborn baby has a willy? You can't just tell people, you need an explosion!

It's social media, everything has to be a performance for consumption by as many people as possible otherwise your life is meaningless.

It’s kind of worrying (coming from someone who doesn’t post a great deal on social media for the likes :lol:) how much people seem to rely on the stuff these days.

They are also rubbish because they reinforce people equating gender and sex

No one would have died if they just announced it on Facebook or something like a normal person.
