I thought I would share these pics with all of you it shows where I am at with my LEWIS Antler Chess Set and Board.
The board is Moose Antler and Laser engraved. It took 6 hours of Laser time to engrave the Board Layout.
Industry standard is $2.00 per minute on Laser Time.. do the math.. Good thing I own one.
When it’s completed I will have about $1500.00 in just Antler cost if I had to purchase it.
This has been an ongoing project over the last couple of years.
The board still needs a lot of work.. trim for the edges and more engraving on the bottom with the story about the Lewis Chess Set that is in the British Museum.
The Chess Pieces are hand carved out of Deer, Moose and Caribou Antler.
The Board it twenty x twenty and the King is approx 2” wide by 3” Tall.
There is also a pic of my Laser.

What kind of glue did you have to use on the lovely board? Did you laser the pieces too?
