This is the first of three sets that I made. I made this set ten years ago. The other two sets I made seven years ago. Time fly’s when your having fun. I love to play chess, so I designed this set to have a complete chess theme through out the table and chairs. The center post of the table is the king upside down. Scaled up 9 times. And the four feet are the knights scaled up. The chairs back has a abstract figure of a lady queens body. The top of the chairs have a queen’s crown. And the bishiops are on booth sides of the crown. The table top has parquetry of rooks and castles walls. All three set were made out of American Black Walnut & Hard Maple.Photobucket Photobucket

This is a great creation! The players can actually put on their “color”, and really get into the “part”. This is incredible. Thanks for the post.
