Designed from scratch as a holiday gift to my father. My brother, Joe, aided in the design of several pieces.
I designed these pieces to accommodate .72" diamater ceramic magnets.
Many of the pieces are also drawn to incorporate 8-32 and 1/4-20 acorn nuts for a bit of extra industrial snazz. (See exploded diagram photo for reference.)
The board pictured here is just eight-inch x 1.5" laser cut acrylic squares epoxied onto a 12"x12" steel plate (purchased at the Home Depot!).
A bit of extra info:
The knight was inspired by a sea-horse, and the bishop was designed to look more like an actual mitre hat than the traditional piece.
