Dream Big. Or Else.

As a little kid, what did you dream to be? Astronaut? Dancer? Cowboy? Robber? I, for decades, have wanted to be an airplane pilot. I blame it on the movie “Top Gun,” which was clearly the pinnacle of Tom Cruise’s life and career.
Blackbox Case has formed as a product of friendships and, well, dreams. We dream of being artisans, giving back to our community, changing the industry norm, pushing wood to a new and unseen level of perfection, creating something new, employing someone who is down-and-out, building a children’s school in Abu Dhabi.
…There is one caveat to your dreams, though. You have to risk that which you fear most: failure. So we set before you our risk. We have been working so, so hard to perfection. There are jobs that have been quit, money invested, and a few cuts and criticisms along the way.
We encourage you to follow our journey and to start your own. What do you want most? Start a business? That pretty girl on the subway? Ride a wild ostrich? Believe you want it and do it. We promise, the freedom is wonderful.
Welcome to the family, and meet the new Blackbox Case.
