Photos of Handmade Magnetic Chinese Chess Set
Here are some photos of a magnetic Chinese Chess set I made out of checkers from two magnetic Chess/Checker sets, the board from one, and stickers I made by photocopying board and piece images onto sticker paper. I got the board and piece images from the front of H. T. Lau's book Chinese Chess. While still at the copy center, I used the equipment there to cut out the board, carefully cutting a straight line down the middle of the river, because the board I was going to apply it to is a folding box board. I then applied one half of the board to each half of the magnetic chessboard, carefully alinging both halves and making sure I covered up all the squares on the chessboard. I spent a few hours at home cutting out the pieces and putting them on checkers while watching TV.
