Here is a preview of my latest project; a stunning new Chess Set. The set is still in the making and will take some time to finish. It will be detailed in full on my other blog, Brendonchess.com . See link. I will post more pictures shortly.
The Old Style Smoothing Plane that I detailed in a previous post was used in preparing some of the Kingwood used in this board. It is very satisfying to use a hand tool that you have made yourself in the crafting of something as exquisite as this chess board.
