Until now, I’ve never been a big fan of lathe work. But once I began making the pieces, I became hooked with turning. The dark pieces are walnut and the light colored wood is maple and finished with Formbees tung oil. The king is 4-1/4” tall.

-- Bryan, South Carolina

I would say a fair amount of hand carving for the tops. Very nice set
