I’ve decided to use my friends scroll saw for making the pieces for this project and to mimic the chess pieces from: GaryK
I found a great book at the local woodcraft store about scrollsawing chessmen, I’ll have to pick it up next time for shape ideas. I’ll make sure to post some pictures when I do.
Sadly I’ve exhausted all of the woodworking books at Borders and Barnes & Nobles, durring the past few sit-down sessions.
On a positive note I was able to get my tablesaw to cut straight lines! I never thought I’d be proud of getting a tool to do what it is supposed to, but between fixing up handplanes and using old power tools I’ve learned a few lessons.
