What has turned out to be a simple and relaxed day has been a long and tedious one. The chess board that I’m building has been what seems to be a chess game in its self. The 4”x16” strips have turned out good but seem to have a little cup to them after the glue up. I took the board and sanded what I could till it was level and smooth. Then the cherry side strips are not perfectly flush against the maple ends. I planed everything but the butt ends just don’t seat all that well. Am I being to critical on my self? Do I over analyze? Or is it just the attention to detail that the Navy has taught me.
