    looks good :-)

    But kind of conventional chss men.

    Surely the 3d printed aspect would have given you the scope for something a bit more adventurous ?

    The person who had made the original request specifically wanted the standard traditional type chess set.. I actually prefer the classic look myself, even though I do not play.

    Yes, this is the link to the design https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:957958 Board base is PLA and the tiles are all the wood filament. Also made jigs for sanding the tiles and a pin cutter to cut all the tiny filament pins.. Also made the box out of good old wood scraps.. :-)
