For Christmas I undertook the enormously painstakingly hard task of creating a Harry Potter Chess Set for my son using all wood pegs of varying sizes.
McGonagall as the good queen
Dumbledore as the good King
Harry Potter as the good bishop (x2)
Ron Weasley as the good night (x)
Hermione Granger as the good rook (x2)
My husband just so happened to find this chess board at a local thrift store for $1. He sandblasted it to get all of the old shellac off of it and it restored beautifully.
I will have a few more posts with more pieces to finish off the series.
