Print your own chess set

Print might not be the correct word for it, although it is described as a '3-D printer'. An automated carving system might be a better description. Assuming it is the same as other devices I've read about before (but not actually seen in operation), instead of paper you feed it blocks of foam, which are then whittled into the shape required.
This one is a kit which costs over $1000, so I'm not sure I'd be rushing out to buy one just yet.
