  • 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

                  It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

                  I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

                  This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

                  If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...

                  I think the foot release was an option. I don’t see the pulley for it on the back of yours. Although it may have been removed. It is a very simple concept, it’s a cable attached to the back of the saw to release the arm
