I had an hour to kill after dialysis tonight. So I went in the shop and turned a pawn. I still need to do some finish sanding on it. But I like the size.

Pic 1 is my diagram i'm somewhat following.

Pic 2 and 3 are the pawn

Here's an idea for the chessboard. It certainly puts a new spin on the game of chess. Making It Harder: A Spherical Globe Chess Game - Geekologie

Pictures look like the bishops to me, not the pawns..
You're on a roll though, keep at it, only 28 pieces to go and looking good.

LOL, yep, it's a bishop!! I'm done until next week. I'm leaving tomorrow for Cleveland. Gonna visit the Local Chapter and hang with Mark James!! It seems about an hour per piece so far. I like the way the bishop turned out.

When you get to the pawns you might want to consider a cheap duplicator. I was trying to to find the old article I read on how to create jigs to help you duplicate but I can't seem to find it now. It seems like creating all those identical pawns will be tedious.

You work so far looks really good. I like the shapes and design.

Thanks! I'm planning on doing the pawns last. That will give me time to figure out a plan. I don't mind turning each piece, although after I make 32 pieces I might go crazy!! Altleast for now I can do 1 piece a day after work. I hope to turn a lot of the pieces next weekend.
