Hi All

I'm new to crafter.org...really new...like ten minutes. I've been crafty all my life, especially in wood.  Here's a link to a giant chess set I made a few years ago that comes out every year at the Wake Up the Earth Festival in JP.

Wow. Giant chess. I wonder if I'd be any better at that than regular sized chess.  Wink

Very cool!

And, welcome! Nice to see another Bostonian here.
