Was just surfing the web for inspiration on a few projects. Along the way I ran across this chess set. Can't recall the site just now, but they are asking $54.50 for one of these sets, and I forgot to check the shipping price. I would be ashamed to ask that much for a set like this one. Oh it's nice enough, but nowhere worth that much. Something like this is something I would like to make, along with a board, to donate to Toys For Tots. But I'm thinking stamp the pieces on round wooden discs, enough to make a checkerboard set, so you wind up with a set of chess pieces in the mix. I've even got a set of rubber stamps, cost me about $8 if I recall right. And, if I can find that dratted stamp set, I figure on doing just that. I wouldn't mind selling a few too, but I think somewhere in the $10-15 range, including a board, would be a reasonable price. Heck, could likely make money at $5 a set.
