Friends hello. Today I finished my big project which lasted two months. This is making chess pieces on a lathe on wood and a chess board. For black figures I used bog oak and for white beech. Who is interested in the entire process of making this project, click on the link to the playlist. Enjoy watching.

I didn’t understand a word you said, but your method is impressive. I wonder how in the world you figured out how to make the patterns?
I like the final shape of your chess pieces. Very nice work.
Thanks for sharing!

Just beautiful sir!
I love the classical chess piece design and the colors are also not just classical but very well done!

All the templates were selected experimentally by a millimeter, it was long but the result turned out to be excellent

Beautiful! The knights, in particular, are especially attractive. We should start a correspondence game :p
