I recently discussed with a potential client the design of an octagon gaming table with an inlaid chessboard. After giving the design more thought I created a 3D model in SketchUp and emailed the client several views of the table. SketchUp proved to be a valuable tool for visualizing the table for both myself and my client resulting in a confirmation of the order.
The span of the table will be 34”. The chessboard will be Peruvian Walnut and Maple with a Mahogany border. The shelf under the table will serve as a storage for the chess pieces.
