Making a Chess Set

I am finally turning a chess set. I am through the Pawns and ready to start on the Rooks. I also made a chess board which gave me a chance to actually polish up my pyrography and Zentangle skills. Here is a picture of the board and some pawns. It is taking a while since tax season has started and I am working as an AARP Tax Aide. I will be posting videos on my YouTube channel so stay tuned. The first episode on Pawns will air on YouTube Friday, Feb 26. My plan will be to issue a new episode each week covering turning one of the chess pieces and some aspect such as design, coloring, finishing, weighting, etc. I have posted a video on making this chessboard to start off the series.
