      Nice cutting on the chess set. What wood did you use and did you paint or stain it?

            Very nice now you know he is going to ask for a box that has a board to play chess on for the pieces right? Great job on the pieces. Thanks for sharing it with us.

                        Nice cutting. Just a suggestion - next time you photograph them turn one of the knights sideways so we can see what both views look like. Hard to tell from front/back views what they look like.

                          Thanks for all the nice comments. This set was cut from some cheap pine and then i spray painted it and then varnished it. It took me about four months in my spare time.

                          Thanks again for all the nice comments

                              VERY NICE set! I don't know how to play chess, but maybe I should make a set and learn. Those are really good looking pieces.

                                First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...

                                I think that it important for any business to keep track of what their customers are concerned about. If a business ignores such things, they will suffer in the long run. Ignoring comments in your own forum or not replying to emails is not a good strategy. Good companies are always on the lookout...

                                Thanx Rolf. I also found a package of Olson 3/0 blades I had. They are 33TPI x .008T x .022W
                                I’m guessing that’s their equivalent of a puzzle blade since they don’t sell one specifically labeled as such....

                                Are there specific issues about how the patterns are printed that cause everyone problems? If not, whatever they change made to make some of you happy will make others unhappy. I prefer things published at 100% if practical.

                                First a disclaimer, Yes I do projects for them and an occasional article but I am not an employee and am not speaking for them.

                                But I will be a bit defensive here. If you have ever been to FC you would know that they have a very small staff that publishes three magazines and several books,...
