Re: Anyone ever build a chess set?

Thanks for the offer, Philip. I'll keep you in mind. I've got persimmon coming in bright turning blanks, and will hold off on any true boxwood as my turning skills and ability to make crisp pieces may not quite be what i'm hoping.

If I can manage to make a really good first set, though, I will be looking for boxwood or something very similar on the second.
