Chuck, that's a nice set! My plan was to use walnut and maple for the pieces. I found a few designs I like. I think i'll get started on the pawns this weekend. I'm not using a duplicator, so hopefully I can get them looking uniform.

I won't complain about my jet variable speed again, I promise.

I would like to see him sharpen his tools.

Ernie, the folks who do lots of repetitive shapes advise to do one element on each piece rather than do the entire piece at once. Might be counter intuitive, but having tried it, they are correct. Doing the ball end of a pawn about 20 times in a row will foster more consistency.

(You are going to do a few extra pieces I am sure.)

Think about a screw chuck so you can remount piece easily. (OneWay has a really nice one)

I cannot imagine my self doing runs of 40 spindles for ballisters on staircases.......
