  1. Hand carved/turned Chess pieces with Chess table

    Just another variation on the Staunton offerings at the website. Thought I would try a four-legged table with the storage drawers. Still messing around with the drawer! Table dimensions are 32" wide by 27" across by about 28" high. Made from Walnut taken from a very old collapsed Virginia...
  2. The Samurai Chess Set

    Started out with the theme and made the pieces, then designed the board to go underneath them. When I can, I like to get the chessboards involved as much as possible with the theme as the pieces are. The pieces are carved from Walnut and Poplar. Kings about 7" tall. Pawns about 3.5" tall...
  3. The Samurai Chess Table by Jim Arnold

    I did a regular board model of this theme several years ago and had a reuest to make a full table version which allowed me to incorporate some special features like the 'gate' on the drawer pull, flared leges (which aren't very visible in these pics), and curved bottoms on the tables sides. It...
  4. The Masonic Chess Set, Freemason's Chess by Jim Arnold

    The Masonic Chess Set, Freemason's chess by Jim Arnold. This one was a long time bringing to life. 18 months from the initial concept to having it finished. Just been way to busy. I made it to the top 3 pages in google for 'chess sets' along with page one listings a several niche keyword...
  5. The brazillian Jiu Jitsu Chess Set by Jim Arnold

    Here's one that I thought was kind of cute…really colorful anyway. I was given the BJJ logo (the last pic in the series here) and told to bring it to life. Just an extra minute to dig a 5/16ths" wide groove in the top of the shoulder of all the pieces so the groove would 'hold' the leather...
  6. Republican versus Democrat Chess Set by Jim Arnold

    The Democrats versus the Republicans Chess Set. Its pretty easy to come up with ideas for sets, and by far, the simplest ideas involve everyday antagonists…cats versus dogs, men versus women, fishermen versus duck hunters, and this glaring one Democrats versus Republicans. For this one, the...
  7. The Literary Chess Set by Jim Arnold

    This one needs some explanation. It's for an English professor, who lectures, and writes books. So I went with books for the bishops, queens, and kings (his favorite titles are on the books. I made the Crowns and bishop mitres to look like they were 'bookmarks'. The for the knights, I did...
  8. Musical Instrument Chess Set

    Only two more sets to go on this big overseas order. I make lots of music themed sets, but nothing like this before. The chessboard, made from solid Maple and Walnut measures just over 28" square, the board tiles are about 2.75" square, and it's over 10" from the top of the table to the top...
  9. Sioux versus The Crow Chess Table by Jim Arnold

    This is my submission for the 2014 Calgary Stampede Western Art Auction, The Great Sioux Tribe versus The Great Crow Tribe Chess table. The table is made from solid Cherry, Sapele, Maple, Poplar, Ambrosia Maple, and Poplar. The table measures 32" wide by 30" across by about 28" tall. The...

    http://www.woodpeck.com/boxclampm2.html?et_mid=519500&rid=3333165 Watch the vid to see its versatile functions. If you do assembly (who doesn't?), look into this product. Note: I am not associated with the manufacturer in anyway. But I always look for ways to improve my efficiency in the...
