At last I have finished this Paris Chess set from the Jim Kape book, after 6 months on and off.
The pieces are cut freehand in sycamore and walnut on my scrollsaw.
The King is the Eiffel tower,
The Queen is The Arc de Triomphe
The Bishop is The Fleur-de-lis
The Knight is traditional
The Rook is The Bastille
The pawns are each a Magnum of Champagne.
This will be a one-off from me,but I might tackle the San Francisco next.
