Make it Yourself Chess Set
Super Handyman Chess Set
Designed by Al Carrell
After you look over the easy-to-make chess pieces, you may find that you have many of the nuts or bolts you will need in your workshop right now. If not, your hardware store or home center will have the rest. In fact, you may decide to make some changes and design your own pieces. Different sizes will create different pieces so your set can be large or small. Here are my plans.
After you have decided on your design, use an adhesive made for metal to secure all of the pieces together. Spray half the pieces black and leave the rest as-is. Use a pre-made game board or start another project and make your own custom board. Left-over vinyl flooring will make an inexpensive and fun board. Good luck!
