I really like this set. I like the simple lines. For a guy like me with only a table saw, this is an approachable project.

I like the design of the pieces. I have never seen anything similar, always just turned pieces.

I’ve been asked for chess sets quite often at markets. The obstacle has been the pieces. Love your design and simplicity.

I’ll have to give this a go!

Beautiful set. I was always wondering how I could make my own figurines if I have not wood lathe. Your version is solution for my problem. I will keep that chess set on mind for the future.

Love the minimalist design – no more ornamentation than necessary to clearly distinguish the pieces, yet enough to make it clearly well-crafted and beautiful!

Thank you!
Honestly, I think in this case it was just my engineering mindset… I love simple shapes. These pieces just made sense. In my original design I had even fewer embellishments.

Beautiful set. Each piece design is simple and elegant. As I have always harbored a desire to make my own set, thank you for the inspiration.
