This unique bullet casing chess set is made using recycled casings. You'll find other bullet chess sets - they just wont look like this one! This set is a unique, hand-crafted work of art, and it shows!
The pieces are made from spent brass bullet casings. The dark side pieces are painted black with brushed top and bottom tips. The pawns are .357 Mag, the rooks are .30-.30, knights are .308, bishops are 33 Winchester, queens are .300 Win mag super, kings are .300 Rem ultra mag.
This set uses a copper trimmed old laminated ply board with a red oak veneer finished top side to create a simplistic but rustic chess board. The wood shows its age with random distressed marks here and there. Even the small nails through the copper are actually vintage cobblers' shoe repair iron tacks.
The checkerboard pattern is created with paint and has been given a rustic dry brushing weathered effect. The entire set is coated with clear polyurethane. The quarter in the 1st photo shows size reference. The set is signed, dated and serial numbered. Felt pads are placed on the bottom.
Board size: 11.25 x 11.25 x 0.75 inches
Pieces size: The height of the pieces range from 1.25 to 2.75 inches
Pieces width: Base: approx 3/8 to 1/2 inch
The pieces only, without the board, are $165. The pieces with the board are $310.
Hand-carved and crafted to order in the USA - no two sets will be identical! If you want a different size board, we can go up to about a 16" size for a small extra cost - just call and we can discuss.
