This is a Chess Set that i started working on almost 5 years ago.
I went through several design iterations using pine wood until I created this design and although it was rather difficult to scroll out I think it was well worth it.
I used Maple wood for the light side and Cherry for the dark.
The board has Italian marble tiles that i had to cut to size on a friends wet saw.
I interlaced small lengths of cherry in between the marble to give it a unique look.
It is nice to finally see it all come together.

That is the most impressive scroll saw work I’ve ever seen, amazing. What size/tpi blade did you use?

Thanks Bob, due to the every changeing thickness of wood being cut with this style of scrolling I had to use several different size blades making each piece, primarily 4 different blades. for most of the first interior cuts i used a #5 blade with 24tpi, then switched to a 48tpi spiral #1 for the finer details. The outside cuts needed to be a very thin cut so for most of that I had a #1 blade with 26tpi. I finshed the finer details with #2/0 17tpi.

Wow – I’m amazed by this and what some of you do with a scroll saw. I like the wood mixed with the marble tiles. I’m so glad I took a look. Thanks for sharing.
