“All war is deception.”
– Sun Tzu
In an earlier post I shared the King and Queen of a chess set I have been working on for over a year now. Next week, my students at Marc Adams will make their version. And the new students the week after that.
I wanted a project that really emphasizes the capabilities of the Jointmaker Pro.
The smaller your work, the more accurate you have to be. This is going to be challenging, but we will do it.
This chess set will be on display in the upcoming “Quality is Contagious” exhibition in August. It is the first piece of woodworking I will have made in almost 30 years. Lots of precision sawing and block plane work. FYI, the king is 4-1/2″ tall, the chessboard squares are 1-3/4 square in the cavities. I wish my eyes were younger.
The piece is called. “Fog of War“.
