I am now working on carving this new chess set out of Moose, Deer and Caribou Antler. The board is also Moose Antler that I Laser Engraved. The other set is hand carved from Spalded Maple and Walnut, I’ve done three of these wooden sets over the years…

That board is made out of Moose Antler placed on 3/4” Baltic Birch Plywood. Those pieces you see on that board are carved out of Moose and Caribou antler. The other board is made out of Spalted Maple and walnut and so are the chess pieces.

WOW. I’ve always wanted a set like that and, while I was familiar with the Isle of Lewis Chess Set, I had no idea a set like that would ever exist. WOW!

Thanks Jim.. You make some awesome chess sets. I’ve never carved anything but the Lewis Set. My father had a molded set that I always liked so I carved them. He has since passed away and I have his set that I use to get the right details. That board Jim.. I done on my Laser, once I had the Moose antler applied and sanded smooth. It took 8 hours to Laser it.

Outstanding, again! Curious- what does the Lewis refer to? A carving style?
