Well ,its been a while since my Paris chess set, but as the cloud of sawdust disappear from my scrollsaw the skyline of San Francisco has emerged. It is sycamore v walnut.

Outstanding! Reminds me of my childhood walking around the city, riding the cable cars. Of course the Pyramid building wasn’t there yet. ;) Thanks for the trip down memory lane and the beautiful woodworking.

Say, Maybe you could make me a loaf of sour dough french bread with crab legs on the side.

Beautiful work and a fantastic chess set. When I read the title I wondered how you would be able to represent fog with wood, but I guess you have a more logical thought pattern than me and came up with the skyline instead.
