I've been quiet long enough. Two of my chess set patterns recently won awards from the Scroll Saw and Wood Crafts Magazine. This competition, held every other year is for designs for the scroll saw.
The Editor's choice award in Compound Cutting with my San Francisco Chess Set, soon to be published in a Fox Chapel Book.
The People's choice award in Compound Cutting with my Venice Chess Set, also soon to be published in a Fox Chapel Book.
I want to thank the magazine and everyone that voted for my designs. I honestly don't now where this talent came from, but it's fun to be able to design these things.
Also, watch for the Notre Dame chess set to be published in the same magazine sometime later this year.
