Projects from the Past - Cardinals vs. Penguins Chess Set

I'm a bit under the weather today, so I'll be posting a project from last year. I made a bird-themed chess set as a surprise for a friend. I'm terrible at chess, but it was a little hard to give away after I spend so long crafting the pieces. Still, my birdies are in better hands now. Six months later I'm better at parting with things I make, especially because now I have more than ever before.











The queens are the taller ones with smaller crowns.

I ran out of red clay so the cardinals had to hire mercenaries.
