Default Shall we play a game?

A chess set that I made awhile back. I found the board at a thrift shop and made the pieces to fit. They are made from spools, drawer pulls, candle cups and bits and bobs of leftover wood pieces.

You can do this. Anybody can do this. It doesn't have to be spools. It could be nuts, bolts and washers. It could be any theme that you want it to be.

My next one is going to be either legos or tinker toys. I have another board that I found.

We were going to buy a fancy one, but I told the Boss that I probably could make one. He grins and says, "You always can probably make one, but when are you gonna make one woman?"

Get him to help you with it. Make it a family project. You'll have more fun that way.
