DIY Metal Chess Figures

QueenkingbishopClaude writes “My newyear present for all makers: Industrial Design DIY chess pieces out of nuts and bolts, brass and steel. I had seen a picture of similar chess figures in a book about chess, so i decided to build my own using commonly found 8mm nuts, bolt and other metallic pieces, some glue (to fix parts to base, which is a 14mm nut)”.

  1. My father made a set 4o years ago with 1 inch diameter bolts and nuts-even with carrying case. Became a most coveted family treasure, which my elder brother got, for he was a chess player. It is worth the effort to create, for it will be cherished.
