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