Topic tags/keywords: chess set walnut rosewood

I have a sort of pen-pal, skype buddy who is in the service, completing his tour in Pakistan. As a reward to himself, he is looking to have a chess set turned out of walnut (clear finish) and rosewood (dark stain). I am not a wood turner, and thought I would put it out there for your help. The board has three inch squares, so the pieces would need to be pretty substantial. He also needs backgammon pieces to match.
Thanks, John Schutz

From what I understand, price is not an issue. He wants something special.

I have a CNC machine that I use to make wood gears and parts for wooden clocks. I can cut the pieces for you but it would not be quick or easy. I assume you want the board and the pieces.
PM me with details and we will go from there.
