Reigning Cats & Dogs Chess Set | Lucky Platt & Jim MacDonald


Reigning Cats & Dogs
A Chess Set Designed and Created By James MacDonald & Lucky Platt
Pyrography and Colored Pencil on Wood Pieces
Hand Cut Marquetry on Bird’s Eye Maple and Fumed Oak Board

A band of fight club cats inspired by pop culture disruptors, roadies and misfits face off a fashion-forward court and entourage of dogs who just want to play. The 32 pieces of this whimsical and functional wood chess set are shaped from curly maple, sipo, and holly and are appropriately weighted and felted. Each piece features unique pyrography art by Macdonald (cats) and Platt (dogs). The board is made using handcut marquetry of bird’s eye maple and fumed oak with a varnish finish. The outcome of the game depends… are you a cat person or a dog person?
