Nice work...I've been watching video's as of late in regards to turning chess pieces. Yours looks very good. Like I mentioned I have been watching video's and there is a video that shows a rather easy way to make the Knight. The part of the video where he starts making the Knight is at 4:17 and runs til 6:22. He turns the head as a cylinder and then uses a sander to finish the shaping.

Interesting process, especially the knight, but seems like a waste of wood having the bit left in the chuck after each piece.... but a process I'll take into consideration on my next set.... the set I show above each piece was turned on a collet pin chuck... each piece was drill to fit the pin chuck, then counter sunk with a forstner about 5/8's inch... each piece is then weighted with birdshot and sealed with a wood putty to keep the shot in, then I had a sheet of adhesive felt... I have about 2 lbs of birdshot in the whole set.... I'm a bit of a miser with my wood, even though I have wood stacked or piled everywhere around my shop.

Basically, any turning is a waste of wood as sculpture could be a waste of marble. My wife brought this up after I had turned a pen blank and was knee-deep in chips and shavings. I would like to try my hand at a chess set.
FWIW, I had a neighbor who was a chess master. Never challenged him but should have learned from him.

Depends on what the food is. For me, it would be asparagus.
