DIY Chess Set

Designing a travel chess set

Over the past week, in my spare time, I've been designing and knocking out a chess set on my bandsaw. Something small enough to fit the checkerboard I made a couple of winters ago. I wanted a rustic, rough set that if I killed it on a float trip or car camping trip, I wouldn't be too putout over the loss. Here she is. At some point, I'll likely make a much nicer hardwood set. This was a fun project and I'd like to make some that adhered more tightly to my sketches above.
