A new chess set. The board has a base of Black Butt with the squares made of red cedar and quandong,the surround is a strip of black bean and maple.
The chess men are of red cedar and quandong and cut on my scroll saw.

Black Butt….Eucalyptus Pilularis
Red Cedar….Toona Australis (cedrila)
Quandong….Santalum Acuminatum
Black Bean….Castanospermum Australe
Queensland Maple…Flindersia Brayleyana

any info on where you got the design? I’m always looking for ideas on making pieces that don’t require a lathe. Very nice!

Every time that I see a chess set done. It amazes me to see the look of the chess pieces.
