Chess set 2D

Post by Eduardo_Torres »

This was a very ambitious project that took a lot time to design mainly looking to have something unique and different with a secret compartment to store all pieces. Originally I was planning to create all chess pieces using a scroll saw but I convinced myself to go forward with the CNC and Aspire. It was a great learning experience that forced me to step out of my comfort zone in terms of design & manufacturing the entire concept. I trust you like the below 2-minute "making video" as much as I enjoyed doing the piece.

Your pieces caught my eye as am looking to do a unique chess playing set. That's going to make someone a really long lasting set. +1

I don't know how you got those square pieces to all just sit there without misalignment etc. Very interesting!

PS. Your video was just right for experienced cnc craft people! Plenty of detail and none of the boring stuff! :lol:
