Old and broken down auto parts are nothing more than trash for some, but for people like Armando Ramírez they are no less than treasure. The artist transforms these objects into sleek, black and silver chess sets. The horses, pawns and everything that you see on a chess set. To complete the chessboaround objects are rolled into a specially crafted die machine that transforms them. Armando uses everything from screws and bearings to a car’s electrical system.

We’ve got a massive DIY chess roundup here, and you can even make a chess board double as secret-agent storage.

    I cant believe that someone will make something like this. I haven’t seen like this before but i saw some but not like auto parts. Yes you’re right there are some people think that old stuff like the one he made is just a trash. Old and broken down Auto parts + creativity = Auto parts chess sets.
