Projects from the Past – Cardinals vs. Penguins Chess Set

I’m a bit under the weather today, so I’ll be posting a project from last year. I made a bird-themed chess set as a surprise for a friend. I’m terrible at chess, but it was a little hard to give away after I spend so long crafting the pieces. Still, my birdies are in better hands now. Six months later I’m better at parting with things I make, especially because now I have more than ever before.

The queens are the taller ones with smaller crowns.


I ran out of red clay so the cardinals had to hire mercenaries.

    I’m VERY interested in this! Would you be willing to make another one? If so, how much would it cost? Thanks
