“wooden chess set with case -buy chess board nz”

Hello, great project thanks for sharing! I’ve just completed the second glue-up and sanded it all down again but I’ve noticed a kink in one of the corners meaning the board does not lay completely flat. Is there anything I can do about this, such as clamp it flat and leave for days hoping it will stretch, or is it something I’m going to have to put up with? (This is my first woodwork project)

I have a question. Between steps 7 and 8, did you run the endges through a jointer or otherwise true them up? Despite my best efforts, the edges after the second glue up are not perfect and I don’t think a border will glue on right. I’m wondering how running the checkerboard wood through the jointer would work, since the grains alternate.

Great responses guys and thank you for the information! I will take a look at HOS and see if they have some offerings on eBay. I was looking at one set in particular because I like the dark “white side” vs the ebony side. I am not sure if I am supposed to be posting a link like this here but it was this set. Is this good quality you think?

What i’ve figured out though is that’s not actually what they look like, they’re using the 4″ King picture template in the “Pieces Only” listing for the 3 inch set, the 3.5 inch set and the 4 inch set.  Here is what the 3″ itself actually looks like:

For $100 you should be able to get a pretty kick-ass set.  Look for “House of Staunton” sets sold on ebay, not directly through the HOS site.  They are usually much discounted for some reason.  (I personally think a lot of the deep discounted stuff on ebay — esp if its shipping out of NYC/northern jersey — to be swag but what do i know).

    The pieces look good and yes they don’t have felt bottoms, but I personally like them without the felt. It gives that chess piece sound when you move a piece, not silence as the felt ones do. To me, it seems extremely durable, I mean after all it is all wood, so unless you live with a gorilla, it should last. The cost can’t be beat either! I have seen a cardboard chess board and plastic pieces for almost as much as this one. A great buy and a great chess set!
