  • Finished Chess Set

    Hi There. Here is the finished chess set. Woods used are walnut and mahogany. I ended up stripping the lacquer off the board and using oil and wax. I couldn't get a suitable satin finish with the lacquer.

    All comments and critiques are welcome.

    Thanks for looking.

      Very nice set. I am thinking of making a set for our son as a Christmas gift...what patterns did you use?

          Thanks for the comments. I used "Making Wooden Chess Sets" by Jim Kape. Great patterns and great instructions.

                                In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                                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.

                                Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
