This is really nice. They are really hefty chess men and they look great.

Great job. It is hard to find people that play the game anymore. My Dad taught me when I was a little kid, I have enjoyed it since.

Nice job on consistency on each of the pawns. I love to turn, and want to turn chess pieces, but afraid that I’d tire of so many pieces. Your’s look very doable and I just may get busy. Thanks for posting
