Recently learned chess and have been addicted since. Decided I'd try to make a set without the class based European symbolism in favor of something more intuitive representing the actual movement of the pieces. I got an L screw for the Knight since it moves that way, an eye screw for the Queen since a circle represents the infinite amount of moves she can make, a slotted screw for the rook because it can only move straight, a Philips head for the bishop since it moves in diagonals, and a Roberson screw since it can only move one square. The pawns are smaller blocks with nails and all can be moved by lifting the screw heads. Found a board in the basement and sanded it down and painted the black squares, it folds and all the pieces fit inside. Added the glove as an ode to Marcel Duchamp's Pocket Chess installation he did in 1945 since I had an idea if it didn't work to glue a few pieces on in a Nimzowitsch or Capablanca end game and hang it on the wall as an art piece...but glad it turned out functional~
nothing in particular...bit of everything.
