  1. Chess set literature
  2. Chuck for chessmen
  3. Chessmen design
  4. Creating castles
  5. Pawn production
  6. Behind the design
  7. Making a chess board by hand
  8. Shoes? For Chessmen?
  9. To carve a chess knight?
  10. Chess knights: preparation
  11. Chess knights: carving
  12. Giving chessmen a just little more room…
