- Mechanical Fastener Chess Set

A basic chess set is easy to come by, but what about something a bit more special, something that is as unique as you and your home? This collection of unique pieces offers up some great conversation starters, and some real bank-breakers!

Keep in mind that for this project, you’ll want to get brass-colored for one side, and regular shiny silver (zinc) ones for the other side, so split everything in half and you’ll be good. Unless you plan on painting your white or black army, then it doesn’t matter.
