I have been playing a lot of chess recently and thought I would try making my own pieces.


I am still testing out various designs and woods


None of what are shown are the finished article


The clenched fist for the Rook (stronghold...hmm) and the praying hands for the Bishop are my ideas although probably already dreamt up elsewhere

The other designs are based on / influenced by what I've seen on the Web

The King and 2nd Bishop are based on the Lewis Chess Men.


Great fun and very satisfying


I hope you like them too
