Really nice chess set. That’s a lot of work to put in to a kid’s beginner hobby request! I hope he sticks with it. Even if he doesn’t, that’s going to be a family heirloom.

Thanks so much for the encouraging words!

Beautiful work and a lot of it. I made a grandson a board but I cheated and bought the pieces. Congrats.
