Congrats John, and nice work on your pieces. Being self taught (I am)might be a little slower but still gets the job done. You already have a great hobby to look forward to in retirement and sure won't have to wonder to do with all the extra time.

Great to learn more about you John, I love the game of chess. When I was teaching I would sponsor the chess club and endeavor to introduce young people to the love of the game. That's one of the few things I miss about retirement, my chess playing time at school, and the tournaments for the students. Teaching chess to students and love of the game has caused me to make chess boards that were to me beautiful, but I have never made a chess set. I am impressed with the tenacity it must take to complete a entire set.

It did take a lot of persistence.  The two sets I made took about 20 hours and 30 hours.  For a guy who only gets to turn 2-4 hours a week (and not in the summer) it took many weeks.  But I broke it up, turning all the pieces of one type, then doing something else for a while.  If you try it, I recommend starting with the pawns.  That will really help you zero in on how to do the repetitive work before starting the big pieces.
