first off, sorry about my long absence between posts. i finished these and then just got started on the board and couldn’t stop. i was on a roll.

but anyways here they are. i know that some may be disappointed by the fact that i didn’t carve out horse heads. but i wanted the pieces to be a lathe project only with minimal rotary tool work. i am happy with the way that they turned out.

I’ll bet the invisible board is a challenge.

Very nice. The slice off the top is an elegant and simple way to set the pieces off. Your idea? At first I thought they were leaning a little bit – maybe they’d been drinking (you know how knights are :-). Have you completed the whole set now?

When I made my chessboard my wife made me the pieces at her ceramics class. Someday I’d like to make a wooden set though. These make me want to get at it sooner than later, thanks for showing.

I think they “turned” out exceptionally well.

Hi Mike – your response to my comment ended up in my profile instead of here so I missed it. Anyways, sure, I’ll dig up some pics of the ceramic pieces and send them.
