Default My Chess Set

A week ago my brother asked me to make him a chess board. So I did alot of googling and found a design I like. So here is a pic of the first piece, the took. Also a picture of my jig to make sure the base is the same size on every piece.

You have more patience that I do, and you must love your brother a lot to take on this project.

I'd be very interested to see what you have done on Saturday at the meeting, if you don't mind bringing it up. This is one of my bucket list projects, and I planned on making a duplicator for it, ut if it can be done without...

What woods are you planning on using?
