A little game of woodworkers chess ! Todays match, Delta grey verses Powermatic gold! Click on the links below to view the images…I had to upload them to my webspace…640×480 just doesn’t do it justice!

I was just playing around. The equipment is from the woodworking tools collection I made available in an earlier blog. The models are kinda low poly, but it still kinda cool! Modeled in Sketchup, rendered in Podium.

Nice job. So who is going to build this set? I am sure it is getting someone thinking about it.
