A wonderfully made and simply gorgeous chess set Jim is the best at what he does and it shows through his work which is of the highest caliber and supreme top quality. I am one satisfied customer thank you so much for making such a stunningly beautiful set for me.

They look great! The packaging was sturdy, safe and secure. The workmanship was on time and is beautiful! They are light weight and will not smash the top of our cake. Toppers were painted to the color of our request and I am excited to use them for the wedding day.
Hand Carved Custom Chess Sets
Started carving chess sets in the mid 90's.
I used to take scrap wood home from the construction sites I worked on to build the early sets. I borrowed my boss's van to do my very first show.
The following Monday, I quit the construction bizz. Today, I sell sets all over the world, I work 7 days a week, I wish I would have started this 40 years ago...
I make the sets on demand from scratch...sometimes I do have inventory, but usually have to make it for you after I receive your order. Please allow MONTHS if possible especially if you want the set for a special occasion, or the best way is to just contact via the conversations and i can let you know what my schedule looks like.
I am just back from taking an almost year long break from carving (to give my hands a much needed rest) and the orders are once again piling up. I've made over 1,250 sets (that's over 32,000 pieces!). Back in it again to make some more. I look forward to your ideas. Lots of people "say" they make custom chess sets and custom themed chess sets, but they don't...there's only one person in the entire world who does this and at over 100 designs and 32,000 pieces made, you'll only find that person right here...ME!
Let's get together and come up with something one of a king in the world for your loved ones, family, or that special someone.

Owner, Maker, Wooden Chess Set Carver
Carver of chess sets for the past 20 years. Started carving mermaids, pirates, skulls and such on boat tillers in the 80's. I did a lot of marine interior design work and I was easily agitated by boat owners so I found a different carving outlet.
