Default Cage making and Stained Glass

Figured I'd share my crafts I've done....

My stained glass chess board.



My cage built from an entertainment center.

I'm inpressed JW, especially with the chess board, I've always wanted to have a go at stain glass but I'm hopeless at soldering, excuse me asking but I take it the lid of the box lifts up to keep the chess pieces inside, also I see a cable so I take it you have a small bulb inside to illuminate the glass?
Nice job JW and you've inspired me to have a go

Thanks.. and yes on both things. It does open and there is a rope light inside that bounces off a diffuser to light up the entire chess board.

The pieces are also made from stained glass ... each chess piece is made from 5 pieces of stained glass ((and the kings/queens and pawns all have marbles on them)) It took quite some time to do it, but it was fun.

I think I rubbed my thumbs raw everyday for about 6 weeks getting the pieces right.

Wow, I've just zoomed in on the chess pieces so I can see all the detail, I would have thought the knights were the hardest to do, as I say I'm very impressed JW, it's totally unique and well done

thanks, and yes the knights were the toughest. I had to use a diamond saw in order to cut the chins out.
