  • 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
    Don't worry be scrolling

      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.

            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

                  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.

                  The outside
                  of the extension is almost finished apart...

                  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.
