Chess … boards… and … pieces….


I went to the local markets this morning… for my egg and bacon roll.. breakfast … mmm mmmm

And to say HI to Col and Ken…which I did..

There I met a man who is making chess sets.. and boards… but not from timber… they are some type of stone … plaster made with a mold… any way they are not too shabby…

I told him I make timber chess boards… but that I was looking for the pieces….. I have wooden hand carved pieces from India and some glass pieces… and even some shot glasses with the pieces painted on…

Well I was impressed… so I bought a set…

He then told me he was looking for someone to make a board for his biggest set… or maybe a chess table…

This sounds promising… so we exchanged cards…

Back to the workshop and …. straight into making a board with squares 70 mm on each side… [about 2 3/4 inch]

Makes for a massive board… more tomorrow…
