This is my alternative proposal to my grandson – PSB lover.
The box I made of walnut wood, it is 16” x 16 ” (40×40 CM).
Chess-board I made of : “white” – cherry, “black” – franke wood.
Chess-men I made of sycamore wood , firstly I turned then carved , half of them stained to dark brown and everythjing finished with oil based poly. The King is 4,8” tall only (as for the king) , 12 CM.
I appologize everyone for the quality of my pics. I know, I should get better camera for macro.
Thank you All for looking.

Great chess pieces! The pawns are my favorite, great little faces on them.
Excellent work, and very unique

This is to date the most amazing hand crafted chess set I’ve ever seen. You certainly have great talent. The knights blew me away until I saw the king and queen. Holy talent batman. Bishop hats with feathers insane. WOW!!
