Outdoor Chess Pieces

chess pieces

To make these chess pieces a new pattern was turned on the lathe then a fibreglass mould was taken from that. Next the special items to be suspended inside the chess pieces were placed inside the mould and it was filled with clear casting resin.

After the resin had cured and the chess piece was removed from the mould, the joint lines were scraped off and the surface of the resin polished to a high shine, glass finish. The bases are made from Meranti wood and were turned on the lathe before being stained a darker shade.
