  • White Side "Glades Chess" set complete

    Sorry for the delay, other projects and life intrude.. however here it is, the final white side of my "Everglades Chess"..








    The wood is simple Red Oak, the opposing side (once I start it) is going to be Burmese Blackwood.

    Thanks again for all the comments and suggestions, I'll be back in a month or so when I finish the other side.

          That is just terrific. Heck, I'd feel like I might actually win a match sometimes if I was playing with those!

            Thanks everyone! I was inspired looking at Jim Arnold's Chess sets. His Staunton designs are a thing of beauty, I'm happy if I captured 1/10th of his amazing work..

              Great work on the chess pieces! I just ordered a lathe yesterday and I'm thinking of tackling my own set very soon. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

                PM me when you are ready and I'll tell you what I bought, what worked, didn't work, etc.

                Good Luck!
