This is my first attempt to make a chess set. Conventionally, the Vikings against the Saxons. Material – Basswood. height of figures 5 to 7 cm. Have yet to make a decent Board for them. As it turned out the biggest problem was patience and motivation to finish the work for the end. it took one month

I always said you were making enough warriors for an invading army – now you have TWO armies. The Knights and Rooks are different than your previous carvings of people and bison – would it be possible to get a close up of those to see the details better? Great job. Thanks for posting.

Wow. A lot of detailed carving went into this. Nice work. Building a board will be easy in comparison. ( but a bit larger than one you’re now using)

Very well done! One month, I am impressed. It took me a whole winter to turn a chess set and it did not look as good as yours. Bravo
