We had a 2 hr. class at work on soft starters. I am bad about doodling while people are talking (although I am still listening, honest) This was where my mind was going on the set.
I had this idea to create a chess set with the…
#Queen finished. #chess #AngloSaxon
I had this idea to create a chess set with the pieces themed on Anglo-Saxon designs.
I am working on the designs for the individual pieces right now. I plan on spending this weekend finishing the rough piece designs.
Any blank spaces on my pieces, will probably be filled with designs that wrap the piece, but I feel it will be easier to work on those on the actual piece seeing as how they will wrap around.
God willing, I will finish the king, queen, bishop and rook this weekend.
As I finish each piece, I will place a sketch photo here. These are rough sketches and will be subject to change and addition as I go forward. I expect the finished product to look somewhat different as my hands and mind work it all out into a finished product.
Once I have my piece designs done, I will be buying a new wood carving set (my old one got lost in moving at some point). Then I plan on starting to carve each piece and I will have individual posts for each.
Stay tuned here this weekend as I post new images as I finish them and feel free to leave feedback.
