Fablab chess

I am in love with chess, so I decided to make a board by myself. It is rather small. One will prefer to play on a bigger board if play at home, but it is cool to take it, if you want to play outside.

You will need 3mm plywood and 8 magnets with 6mm diameter

I made it on 100W Laser machine

Step 1: Step 0: 3D

Overturn the board and engrave niches for the figures on the other side of it. We need to get 1,5 mm depth

I made it not from the first try.

Thank you, Fablab77 in Russia for the laser and advices!

Step 9: Corel draw file

Welcome to use this file as the layout.

You will probably need to change settings for your laser machine.

Good luck!
