It was a hard work, the set looks very decent, in my personal opinion, but I think it does not look very proffesional, there are little details in some pieces and the board. Black squares are in 'mahogany' (in Venezuela a bit clearer than in USA, and a bit less red), and the rest are autoctonal woods: 'light saman' for white pieces, dark saman for black pieces (slightly over-colored with red-black inks), and 'pardillo' for light squares. Polished by machine and hand using polishing cream after smooth, and finished with a very thin hand of simple transparent laque. Rectangles to the sides of the Palaces painted in Black. My initial plan was more ambitious: Also another multipurpose set for Grand-Chess and others 10x10... It is in stand-by, for a while, perhaps for a long time.
