Hi. This is my first project here and first worthy to show at all :) Made as a gift for my Father. Project of pieces found in the internet, I just modified King Pieces by adding cross at a top. I used scrap larch wood. Made on Makita LB1200F. You can view more photos from build on YT: BANDSAW CHESS

Really nice chess set. A set is on my “bucket list” of projects to do. I’m sure your Dad will love it! Welcome to lumberjocks and I look forward to seeing more projects!

Nice job Mazik. May I ask where you got the piece patterns? I have a marble board that needs pieces. And I like the pattern of these.

Cheers,
Bill

Beautiful….. But there is a doubt – the Wide tape, so not to cut out.

Hi, thank you for all comments.

Caradawc – patterns were taken from this link – I only changed Kings a little bit.

Sasha – all pieces were cut out with 6mm blade, chessboard spots with 13mm (cut off from piece of scantling).
