      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.

                                So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.

                                Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....

                                Way to go, Betty. Our farmers market does not allow craft sales.
