Hand Turned Wooden Chess Pieces
A larger-than-life set that could sell for big dollars, depending on the woods you use
A little larger than most standard chess pieces, this set is still a great fit for any chessboard with typical 2-inch squares. As any chess player knows, with the exception of the Knight, most chess pieces could be turned easily on a lathe…making a fantastic project for practicing your spindle turning techniques.
Now, thanks to some pretty ingenious thinking, you can turn the entire set on the lathe, including the Knight! Our turned Knight was created by using an offset turning technique, much like the one used for turning cabriole legs for furniture.
