Chess Set for my Dad
by peter_, published
My dad taught me how to make, create, design, build, program, and solder from a young age. This year I finally remembered that parents don't like their children to buy them expensive things, they like their children to build them things. And you could end up making the worst looking thing ever, but they'll love it, just because you made it.
Happy birthday dad.

it lets the top of the king as a whole fall out a lot easier without breaking the fragile top bits, but strictly speaking isn't required -- it just increases the chance that you'll get a usable king the first time around.
Is the extra line on the King a big deal? That particular scrap piece will just be free-floating instead of attached to the bigger piece of scrap, right?

Place the grid pieces on a 12x12 inch ~4.5mm sheet of acrylic in an 8x8 grid for the chess board itself. Because the acrylic glue can leave bubbles between pieces, I just left these unglued and loose. I like this a lot more, and makes it look a lot more haphazard and visually interesting.
