Tool Chess sets are 32 handsome, handcrafted chess pieces served in a tool chest carrying case (available in Black and Red). They are made in beautiful Grand Rapids, Michigan by myself and my father. Tool Chess pieces are handcrafted out of everyday hardware pieces that are powder-coated, giving them a beautiful finish. They're quite hefty!

The set comes with a sharp-looking, green and white, vinyl, roll-up board.

The King (the tallest piece) is 3 1/8" (8cm) tall and 1 1/4" (3 cm) wide. The pawn (the smallest piece) is 1 1/2" (4 cm) tall and 1/2" (1 1/2 cm) wide.
