That is beautiful work. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress.

Did you glue up the blanks at once and them cut them apart, or are you doing them one-by-one?

Interesting jig you have there... I may have to "borrow" the idea on my next set of chess pieces... what did you use for the screw chuck?...

I used a pen chuck (home made) and just eye-balled the bases for size... mine may vary by a MM or so one way or the other...

I have several blocks of poplar and hickory that has been tapped to fit my spindle... 1" x 8 tpi.... may need to figure out a way to center the screw chuck...

So I drill a hole in the bottom of the chess piece. I plan on filling it later for weight. The jig fits perfectly in that. Then I use the screw to hold the blank to the jig. After that I mount it in my chuck and turn. The first size is so all of the bases are exactly the same size. I'll try and get some better pics for the next update.

You will find that the smaller pieces with the same base size will be fine. HOWEVER, for general looks, the larger pieces will need bigger bases to remain standing even with the weights. Your design will be the most important thing. Trust your eye to tell you when it is right.

Best wishes

Update : 7/18

I was able to get in the shop after work and turn rook #2. It's not identical, but it will work for now.

The first 2 pics are the new rook.

Pics 3-9 are my step by step process starting from square to round.

I wouldn't worry about pieces being identical... after all it is a hand made set and pieces will have some slight variables.... as long as they are close and identifiable, you're good to go... I have some blocks set aside to do a second set myself... may have to try your jig to see if it works better than the pen chuck.

The pen marks on my jig are so it goes in the chuck the same way everytime.
