This project has kept me busy for a couple days. This pattern has a set of chess men and the instruction to make the chess board. The chess set is very easy to cut. This would be a good project for those of you with pin end scroll saws. There are no interior cuts to make.
The King stands 2 3/4" tall. I used walnut and oak for the chess set. For the board I used maple and walnut. The contrast of the maple and walnut looks great.
The board will require some basic woodworking skills. You will need to be able to dimension and joint the wood accurately. The more accurate to prepare and clamp the board the less sanding that will be required in the end. I used simple butt joints to trim out the board to keep things simple.
Hope you enjoy making this project. It's really not as difficult as it might seem at first. You can easily make the chess men in one afternoon. The board will take a couple days to make. I think this would make a great Christmas gift for someone.
