  • So cool! We love the ornate designs of the pieces! Over-sized chess sets are very fun! Are you using a particular set for inspiration?

    • Thank you! The pieces are inspired by the architecture of the churches in Moscow. The designs are Jim Kape.

  • I keep coming across these scrolling through projects.  They are awesome!  I'd love to know how you did it, definitely a scroll saw game-changer.  Beautiful work.

    • Thank you! For the chess set I start with 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 block of wood and transfer the pattern using a spray adhesive to keep it on the block. I cut all the inside whole out first then the silhouette. It's a lot of fun
