I planned on making a chess set for my Dad for xmas. I picked the wood I wanted to use for the darker pieces, found a pattern and had plans on getting started. I made a test cut in some basswood just to check for any “gotchas” in the pattern. Wow who would have known such a simple pattern would be so impossible to cut. Sure did look easy on paper.
Needless to say I modified them a bit and am hoping this will work out a bit better. If you are interested I put a link here to the modified outline patterns. They are in pdf form.
