Hardware Chess

If you are interested in learning the nuts and bolts of chess set-making, here is where you should most definitely start - Claude Rieth's complete chess set, completely made out of nuts and bolts.

Thanks to Mr. Rieth, the beginning of your personal path to chess-like glory is as close as your local hardware store.

And from there, whence? Well, now that you know how you can harness your boundless ingenuity to produce your own, custom-made chess sets, how about creating your own, custom-made chess variants? Perhaps, given the relative ease of creating chess pieces, you might even consider venturing into the fabled lands of Fairy Chess where chess boards are inhabited by pieces of entirely different ilks, like, for example, your Leapers, your Riders, and perhaps even your Hoppers.
