Well it has been a busy year for me with work and now that winter is upon us I finally got some time off before Christmas to get to that chess set I had been talking about. I already did the re saw of the black walnut and maple and glued it up to a 1/2 piece of ply ( for stability) I am still designing the type of box that I am making for that. In the mean time with Christmas quickly approaching I spent the past couple of days working on the chess men designs and today I settled on one design. Kind of worked itself out really as I attempted to make a tool like Stu had made for his pawns but in the end I had no luck so I sharpened up the old Skew and had a go with that. Worked out pretty good also used the detail gouge. Not exactly all the same but pretty close. Ok the pics were not inverted on my computer so if someone knows how to flip them I would appreciate it. I attempted to flip them on my computer and then load them with the same results. So Pictures are coming as soon as I can figure this out. Sorry.
