This is the first chess set and board I have made...it took forever but the result is very satisfying. I'm sorry the photo isn't better quality. The pawns are all mice. All standing for one side and crouching for the other. It's Cats v's Dogs.
This unique metal chess set is welded using partly recycled steel, sourced locally. The heads is almost totally recycled as are the molten joints. I have a couple of steel fabricators in Martock who let me rummage through their scrap bins. I can always find strips of steel suitable for making into various parts. All the figures are on round steel bases, also from the skip.
Each figurine is totally unique as they are individually welded and then painted to give a quirky look. When painting, I dot the eyes slightly cross-eyed, which brings each metal figurine to life. Makes me smile every time I finish one.
Contact me if you like to discuss anything.

Remember...there's no vet bills with this Rex Pet!
