I’ll take a couple of quick photos after kid goes to bed. It I bring them out know she will throw a tantrum if she can’t play with them.

Ignore the mob here.
They're as impatient as a pack of jackals or African wild-dogs.:LOL: :laugh:

First, shower them (the chips!):p in lukewarm water (in "salad spinners"), and wipe them clean of factory dust.
Then, oil them, using a clean shoe-shine applicator, with NO more than half a teaspoon of "mineral oil" [US terminology] per 5 barrels (one rack), to oil the rolling edges of each barrel.
Then, with a soft, micro-fiber cloth, wipe off any excess oil from all of the barrels.
With the, now lightly oiled cloth, wipe the faces of each and every chip, avoiding the labels (that's the hard part, where you would need the love of a good friend or a chip-loving partner/spouse).
Only after this has happened can you invite your photographer freak friend to take pics and upload them here.
By the way, Nikons, offering apperture (i.e. depth-of-field) control, are preferable to Canons.

Well here they are in all their chalky goodness. This is my first custom set so I decided to do a cash set as opposed to tournament for security. I would like to do a tourney set some day though. I’m happy with the quality and the way they came out. There are some great sets out there that many will like better. But this one is mine! I’ll post better pictures when they are clean and oiled. I wonder if I was the last scrown run or if there will be more to be released soon.

Total bank is $3,350. Enough for one big table or two small ones I hope.

Artist was @Quicksilver-75. Thanks for the inlay design.

The design is a Barcelos rooster. You should def look up its history. Weird story.

They turned out very nicely, congrats on a great set.

Congrats @sgago84 great set! Love the Taj $5 tribute. I know they're still chalky but we need more side barrel shots.

Great looking set! I really like that the chips become more ornate as the value increases. I feel like that really adds richness to a set.
Just curious -- what made you go with the $20 denomination vs $25? I feel like I see both in sets here.

I picked base colors before edge spots. I felt a yellow $20 chip went with the set better than a green $25 chip. I would have had to change the quarter color and I couldn’t find a color I liked for the quarter. I was tempted with light gray.

Makes sense. I hadn’t even considered the color differences between demons. Good call on the yellow!
