I wanted to see if I could make a little tiny chessboard/checkers board. I opted to engrave every other square. 40x40mm was the target… I had some success… so I even designed a little microstand/table too Chess pieces are next! Care for a game?
My fat fingers could never play that!! It reminds me of the YouTube channel that someone makes tiny food. I could see people watching “tiny” games being played.
Now you need to build a tiny house for that to go in. And some tiny chairs for the players to sit in. And…well, you know how it goes.
What is this? A checkerboard for ants?
(Sorry. Couldn’t help myself.)
Oh that is soooo cute! Let me guess—it started when you ended up with a bunch of tiny rounds from cutting holes in acrylic, and asked yourself “what can I do with these?” I’ve got a big boxful of those.
Perfect for my tiny brain, but not for my fat fingers and fading eyesight.
Beautiful job! You’ve even got a little initial engraved on the checkers! (And I’m afraid I’d need tweezers to play too!)
Adorable! The pieces are like little jewels.
So fun. So Tiny and cute! Nicely done. Love this.
Quite adorable … Yes, think this would work well for doll houses.
Yeah, it needs to be at least 3 times bigger!!!
It’s not that tiny! I’d say it’s closer to hedgehog scale.
Where’s the hamster?
Honestly I just wanted to make a tiny chess set out of nowhere. I get these impulses and that’s what is going to happen! I wish it was reasonable. Hahha
Inside the glowforge keeping things going!
They need to make a piece pusher for you - long handle, little cup shape at the tip the same size as the base of the pieces
That’s the first thing I thought too!
Sorry to drag this back from the dead, but wondering what material those ruby-looking pieces are cut from.
