  • question for jim kape

    i am reading your book on your chess sets do you use exactly 1 1/2 inch
    block it seems your bases are real close to the right dimension no room for area any suggestions on the sizes

    Well, while I'm obviously not Jim I do have a suggestion concerning compound cutting - if you want to stay with the 1&1/2 inch block you can print your pattern at 95% or whatever ratio you like - this will give you a bit more room on the block.

      Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

      The outside
      of the extension is almost finished apart...
