This set is for a juried comp. in July.
Another massive set, it measures over 32” square. The Kings are about 4” long by 2” wide by 8-9” tall, pawns about 2” by 4” by 4” tall.
Wasn’t completely done…still have to put wheels on the locomotive and the cars, find the Walnut king who went riding off, sand everything and re-finish. I’ve played several games on it and its a BLAST!
Solid Maple and Walnut throughout. For the cow skulls, I glued wooden horns on some old rat skulls I found in the shop (JUST KIDDING…those are all Maple too).
5 more sets to do over the next three weeks then I get to celebrate the holidays…can’t wait!
Thanks for looking everybody and I want to especially thank you for all of your great ideas, suggestions, and humbling comments on my posts!
....a Lumberjock set (suggested by a fellow LJ’er) can’t be far away….
