Chess

From woodturning to chess there is only one step, especially if the artist is also a player.
Le Chat Qui Tourne offers the creation of original chess pieces made in local woods.
Each piece is handcrafted which sometimes takes time to create a complete set.
If boxwood is often the preferred wood, certain species such as the olive tree can create a unique and original game.
Chess enthusiasts can use these games for training or competition.
