When you want to post a picture from another site you can not move it from there to here. You have to download it from the other site to your computer then upload it to here.

If it has a simple URL, the upload image dialog can do the copying.

Was what I did on the paper sculptures (1252) "hot linking?"

Hopefully you don't measure your time in nails.


Worth it, though.

Wouldn't be too bad with sharp tools and the right jigs/fixtures able to repeat reliably.

Speaking of chess...

Name:  chess set.jpg
Views: 86
Size:  43.4 KB

Quote:
This chess set has been made using fourteen different woods; including
1.Mahogany, 2.Walnut, 3.Flamey Birch, 4.Spalted Hornbeam, 5.Zebrawood and 6.Douglas fir.
The board is made of 1cm thick pieces of Mahogany and 7.Sycamore, with a plywood substrate.
Rows one and eight are raised up 2cm. Rows two and seven are raised 1cm.
The case is made of Flamey Birch and has been treated with diluted tung oil to bring out the figuring.

The 'dark' pieces use six different woods.
Rook - Douglas fir treated with diluted tung oil.
Knight - Zebrano [aka Zebrawood].
Bishop - Walnut.
King and Queen – 8.Oak treated with diluted tung oil.
Pawns - body is 9.Ebony, head is dyed 10.Beech.

The 'light' pieces also use six different woods.
Rook – 11.Maple.
Knight – 12.Lime.
Bishop – 13.Cherry
King and Queen - spalted hornbeam.
Pawns - body is 14.Ash, head is beech.

The pieces have been designed according to their direction of travel.
A rook can move forwards, backward or side to side.
A knight can move one square forwards, backward or side to side plus one square diagonally.
No, that’s not how the Knight moves!!!!
A bishop can move diagonally.
The king and queen can move in any direction.
Their direction of travel has been indicated by their bases, rather than by the shape of the piece.

Are the light ones treated with something?


If not, cherry darkens over time... could get confusing.

No idea, it didn't say. I think the whole set is ugly.

I'm sure there is as it's surface on the net a few times over the years.

Here's a place to sit while you search...

:edit:
I just looked up the HMS Royal George. Keel laid in 1747, launched in 1756.
Yup 9 years, but the largest warship in the world when launched.
Fought some battles, yada yada yada, in 1780 the hull got coppered but then it gets weird.

In August of 1782 anchored at Spithead while they were loading supplies for Gibraltar she tipped over and sank... 800 people drowned. What!?!?

There was about 1200 crew, 200 to 300 relatives seeing them off, 100 to 200 Ladies of the Point visiting, merchants and traders selling to the sailors, and a number of carpenters doing last minute repairs. The officers had been warned by the ships carpenter it was too far over but they ignored him.
They were all acquitted in a court marshal.

Always listen to the carpenter.
