Great chess set! And a good use of all that leftover marble. I've been wanting to make one for a while, this provides some good inspiration.

This is beautiful. The pitted marble looks great, and I love the storage drawer! Here's to getting free scraps from work that let you make great stuff!

That's an awesome chess set. Love the board and drawer for all the little pieces. They must be extremely sturdy too which is good for me cause my cat likes to knock things over with his tail.

This is insanely cool.  Must have been a huge pain when the woman didn't like the marble, but it really worked out.  What a lucky haul!

That is stunning! It makes me want to learn how to play chess (well) just so I can touch that!

Talk about making lemons into lemonade!  Love the set!  I can almost see how the pieces would feel in my hand (if that makes any sense).  It practically begs to be touched.  The rustic style works really well with the material, too.  My Dad would be green - he plays speed chess and would love a set that is nice and solid like this, especially since it has a drawer.  The set he has now is wooden, and sometimes the pieces go skittering off the board when the play really gets going.

I understand about the cats. My two cats love knocking everything over. When I made this I didn't have any at the time but I am really glad I added the drawer. It also makes it easier to move around.

My wife also really likes this chess board, but hates losing when we play. Although she has really improved and now gives me a bit of a run when we play.

Here is one piece that I made as kind of a test piece. It is a dragon that I thought to make it a rook piece. But after a year I needed something on the lights pull string in my work shop so I put a hole through it and now it hangs in my shop.
