Anything I figure out I will X out in the list of things I need. Solution will be at the bottom section named "RESULTS".
I've been searching the Googles for a bit now, but I'm not able to find any (english) information on it. I'm planning on making my own board since I am in Mexico, and I can't find anyone selling a Shogi board around here.
Any answer that contains the details of your Shogi set is enough. Just remember, it has to be a genuine Japanese Shogi set, not plastic or anything like that. Basically if you could get these measurements from your personal Shogi set, I would really appreciate it.
So what are the standard measurements for a Shogi board?:
X Width (from black's perspective, left to right of board) X Length (from black's perspective, top to bottom of board) X Height (of entire board) - Size of each square/space (where the piece will be put) - Width (from black's perspective, left to right of space) - Length (from black's perspective, top to bottom of space)
That's for the board, now I need for the individual pieces as follows, of course we're talking about if the piece was "standing up" in front of us:
X Height X Width (widest point, bottom) X Thickness (the whole piece) X Degree angles X The angle from the bottom to the top (81 is the angle I believe) X The angle for the little "roof" of the top of the piece
Now, of course, these measurements are different from piece to piece, so the sizes are different, unless I put them on the same group, so you only need to find out the sizes of the pieces listed first:
x King X Rook, Bishop X Gold, Silver X Knight X Lance X Pawn
Of course, I would also like the standard size for the komadais, in case there is a standard size. If there isn't, what's the normal average size for it?
These are all the measurements that I need in order to be able to make a full set. They should all be provided in mm/cm, because it's the most exact, and the measurement style used in Mexico.
Now, the calligraphy, of course. A full example of all the pieces in the "Kinki-Sho" calligraphy. Basically, an example of the calligraphy, how it should look, so that I can carve it to the wood. No pieces needed, only the calligraphy for each piece on a white background.
That is all the info I need, if you can provide necessary links I would highly appreciate it.
One last note, the website can be in Japanese, just be sure to provide some kind of translation, or give the info and the link as a reference.
