Tool Chess sets are 32 handsome, handcrafted chess pieces served in a tool chest carrying case. They are made in beautiful Grand Rapids, Michigan by myself and my father. Tool Chess pieces are handcrafted out of everyday hardware pieces that are powder-coated, giving them a beautiful finish. They're quite hefty.

Tool Chess was invented around the time the family business -- a machine tool business based in Grand Rapids, Michigan called Gallmeyer and Livingston -- was closing down. A couple shop workers replaced a lost chess piece with some hardware pieces and my grandpa thought up the name "Tool Chess."
