The beauty shop owner demanded my wife take these chess set pieces to get someone with a glue bottle and a clamp and maybe they can bring these babies back to new condition... Now that I have them in my possession and can show I am working on them, I can take my very valuable time the rest of the way as Paul might say.... I don't know how many times I use to tell people over the phone, They are in the clamps. Like maybe telling the customers its up to the clamps now to do the rest of the repairs. So far I managed to drill 2 1/8" diameter holes in each horses head and the new lower extremities to give their new inlet hay suctions traps better ability with the dowels to stay attached to the rest of the head along with some 2 part epoxy. Just drilling the holes in exactly the correct location was a feat in its self...... It seems like the gent used a form of the cypress family, a red cedar for the constructing the chess set....But this wood had to be awfully brittle . Around these parts red cedar use to be used for fence post....... I'm surmising maybe the one defeated in the game might have gotten mad and his foot might have crushed those pieces. Maybe he broke his foot while engaging in that terrible act...Serves him right if he did.... His loss will be my gain!!!! Too bad I don't own any carving knives for the rest of the process... It looks like half of the set was made with black mumba wood from over yonder. Smallpatch
