As I’ve posted earlier – I bought a new mini lathe a few weeks ago. I’m going to attempt a complete chess set. I posted a video showing how I made a pawn a couple of weeks ago. I completed all 16 pawns.

Comments and especially suggestions from other turners are indeed welcome! I’m learning a lot and having a lot of fun!
