Chainmail Chess Set: Aluminum by ImrikDragon Chainmail Chess Set: Aluminum by ImrikDragon
For Sale on Etsy: [link]

After a full summer or working on it, the aluminum side of my chess set is finally done. Now on to making the other side in brass.

Total Time: 400 Hours or 16.66 straight days. This figure takes into account the wrapping of the wire, sawing of the rings, construction time of failed prototypes, and construction time of each finalized piece.
Metal: Bright Aluminum
Link Count: 6,417

One part insanity, two parts patience and about 600 hours of free time to kill.

Damn. That's good advise. It beats my chess set made from ceramic clay.

WOW, that is some serious effort! But what a spectacular chess set it will be. As tempted as I am to ask wire gauges and ring ID's I think I will stop my self before attempting to emulate this feat.

This is utterly fantastic. What tools do you prefer for such intricate work?

I like to use a bent nose pliers and a rosary pliers.

Did you have directions for this? If so, I would LOVE to have them :D
Just finished a chainmaille vest, which is usually the LAST project you do, so I need new stuff to do!
