Shogi Set

 A shogi set I made for my cousin for Christmas. The King, Rook, Bishop, and Gold General pieces are engraved; the rest are just painted. The board itself is cut from an old cabinet door and engraved, and the board's feet are made from some poplar bought a while back.

    It would be great if you could update this instructable, though it's been a long time I'd love to make it myself.

     this is awesome, I made my old board, but I am thinking of making another. How did you cut your pieces so uniform? I used a band saw but it was really inconsistent.

     I made paper templates for each piece size and traced them onto the wood, but i also used a band saw.
    It was pretty soft wood so any line wiggles sanded out easily; also making sure you have the right blade thickness and moving the height of the blade guard (or whatever it's called) close to the height of piece helps eliminate shakiness in a cut. 
    I actually cut out each template 20 times and cut the 20 pieces in half to make the final 40, since my beginning piece of wood was so thick.
