A Harry Potter chess set? The nerd level in this post just went through the roof. Seriously though, I wanted to give my brother something for Christmas this year that he and his family would love. I remembered the chess scene in one of the Harry Potter movies and thought it would be, well, spellbinding to create my own.
This instructable is broken into three parts; the chess pieces, chess board, and a handy carrying case to put them in. I hope you enjoy it as much as they did!
