DIY Chess Set Figures
Nuts & Bolts
Brass & Steel

I had seen a picture of a similar chess set figures in a book about chess figures, so i decided to build my own using commonly found 8mm nuts, bolt and other metallic hardware pieces, some glue (to fix parts to base, which is a 14mm nut). If I had a welding machine, one or two welding points would have done a better job than the glue. Putting the pieces together was fast, it took maybe half an hour, most time was spent (+-2 hours) at the hardware store looking for the right pieces.
