I wanted to practice some compound cutting on scroll saw so I purchased Jim Kape’s “Making Wooden Chess Sets” and am pleased with the outcome. The pieces were cut from walnut and ash. The board is made from 3/4” purple heart and yellow heart and flanked with padauk. Each piece was hollowed out in base and filled with b.b.’s to give them some weight on bottom. I used black felt under each piece and on underside of board. I used a super glaze pour on finish for the thick shiny surface. First time I used this product and ended up with a few bubbles…I will know how to do better next time. Thanks for looking!
