« Part 5: Progress... out of the clamps... Part 6 of Chess board. series Part 7: Progress on the border... »

Well today I intend to make the frames for all the chess boards… I think I have… no … I know I have 5 boards needing frames… and a few of them will have a box made under to contain a drawer to store the pieces…

The largest will be fitted to a table… with a drawer.. I have in mind tapered legs… not sure…maybe…we will see..

So it is off to the workshop… after I have my morning coffee… to make some sawdust…

I think the frames should contrast to the actual boards..and maybe have a little embellishment … surely a stripe of purple heart and silver ash would not be amiss….

Later… should have some photos for you by this afternoon…

Stay tuned..

How about some pieces of chess cut in half onlaid to the leg or some kind of carving.
Maybe the whole lkeg carved as a piece of chess. That will probably sell well.
