From the Publisher
Wooden Chess Sets You Can Make by Diana Thompson,
presents nine chess set designs that can be made on the scroll saw. It's an easy-to-follow guide for the young, beginning around the shop. The book is an introduction to compound sawing, which the author describes as a technique of making two cuts on one pattern to create a three-dimensional piece. The patterns are presented so they can be cut out and adhered directly to 1-1/2" stock. The chess set designs include a woodworker's set with the pieces resembling a saw, drill bit, hammer, pliers, screwdriver and screws. There's also instruction for making a chessboard. The 66-page softcover sells for $14.95.
