En Passant

I'm working on a series of tutorial seminars to introduce students and faculty to the various major machining tools, starting with the 2-axis CNC lathe. For good reason, the classic lathe tutorial involves turning chess pieces, so I've succumbed to doing a set, starting with the pawn.

It's hard to beat the ubiquitous Staunton design, but that doesn't mean I can't try! I'm shooting for a design that's intended to be somewhat more abstract, with a decidedly industrial flair.
