Handmade custom themed chess sets on etsy by Jim Arnolds Chess Sets. This custom chess set design consists of 32 hand turned, hand painted, hand made nutcrackers for chess pieces. Bodies are solid Maple and Walnut . The nutcrackers have the typical moving 'jaw'. Pawns stand about 4" tall...the kings about 6" tall. Chess board is also made from solid Maple and Walnut and measures about 24" square. I specialize in hand carving custom themed chess sets, if you have an idea for a set, let's bring it to life!
