I love finding unique handmade products to share with you. This has to be on the top of the list. What a great gift idea for the Chess enthusiast.
"Tool Chess is a chess set made out of nuts, bolts and various other hardware pieces. I assemble each set by hand to my dad’s design, then the pieces are powdercoated for a rich, glossy color. All Tool Chess pieces have a hex nut on the bottom and a threaded stud in the middle. The tops are various configurations of nuts, washers, brass balls, rivets, etc." --William Gallmayer (Etsy, Fresh Shop)
