This checker board is made from scrap wood..using push tacks for the checker pieces..squares are 3/4 inch squares. 3/4 plywood for the base…douglas fir and teak for board and frame..someone has replied on how to king the pieces if you notice the round tacks on the edges they are the kings..on each side theres six holes drilled to place the pieces when removed from the board…

When I played the game as a kid, when we would jump over a piece and “take it” we would stack it on top of another and it would become our King…perhaps we called it something else and I have just forgotten.
