I'm curious what you come up with for knights. The rest of the pieces are pretty straight forward.    ;D

Worked on that for a while this morning. A tricky piece for sure. But, I've come up with a process...I think. It's a combination of a turned blank, some band saw work, and some hand shaping. My only question is whether or not it fits the style of the other pieces.

Thought I'd share my plans and progress.

Drew up these pieces this last weekend. I must have looked at a couple hundred designs. Never saw one similar to this.

King and Queen. The king will have a Celtic Knot. The Queen a double Chevron.


Bishop, Rook and Pawn. The Bishop will have a single banner stripe at the same angle as the Queen. The Rook, a single horizontal banner stripe. The pawn will be plain.

 
And last but not least, the Knight. I thought long about this figure and how I would shape it. I viewed several methods and styles, didn't like any of them. So.....here's my take on it.


Should test my carving and shaping abilities.

Today I cut up most of the stock.
Cherry for the dark, hickory for the light. The Cherry pieces will have hickory banners and vice versa.

 I also decided to make a glue jig for setting the wafers for the banners. Glued up the little blocks today.


More as it transpires.

Ok...progress. I set up to cut the Celtic knots and banners for the King and Queen. Devised a system for repeatable cuts on each piece while switching back and forth. The cuts are critical to insure a proportionate decoration. They must be the exact width of the blade,  and the wafer inserts must also be the exact width of the blade. Otherwise, the knot grows with each cut and wafer and ends up out of kilter. I made insertable stops for each piece with a dead stop for reference.



I also constructed a fixture to glue 4 pieces at at a time.







On to turning the patterns. The king....1st attempt.




I stopped for dinner. I'll look at it again on the morning😀

Fun little project.

Looks pretty functional. As long as you have room for it and enough ceiling height it would work OK.

Made a few cool tools for turning this week. I wanted some micro sized tools for the chess set I'm going to turn and  thought I'd take a shot at a texturing tool.
















A fun project. I'm taking. Week off next week and will be getting down to the business of turning the set. All the blanks are made and there's only the knight pattern to complete.

Cool tools, Bob.  I like the texturing tool. It's almost like a knurling tool.

Do I see a textured yo yo in the works?   ;D
     One more with the one we're after and we'll have two.

I have one more yoyo to make for you three who answered the chess board question. It just might be textured.  ;D
