  • First coumpound cut chess set and board

    Here is what I've been wanting to do for a long time. I use walnut and the white part of ash. I was having problem with the ash burning and I changed from a # 5 blade to a # 5 precision blade and it solved my problem. I made a jig to cut my squares, which work good. I had a few people say they liked the burnt look, but I'll probably recut some of them. Comments welcome. Don

    Looks pretty good I think the burn marks give the pieces character personally I would leave them the way they are but that's only my two cents.Jerry

      Wow that's quite a job just to start and finish that project........you certainly did a sweeeeet job Frenchie. I like the way you beveled the squares.

        Great job !
        I too like the burnt look.
        It gives i character and the look that it has been in use.
        I also like the bevel given to the board squares. I elevates the look.

          Looks very nice to me - and I really like the beveled squares.

            Thanks everyone; I had fun cutting it. It definitely took a while. Now I'll have to figure how much to sell it for if asked. Any one got any ideas. Don

                Larry; The chess pieces are from a Patrick Spielman book, I don't remember which one right off hand The Board was from the woodsmith mag Vol.22/ No.132 of course I didn't follow all of the instruction for it. It has a draw that pulls out from either side. divider for each piece and a place for checkers.I went as far as I dare. Don

                  At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                  The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                  Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
