I made this years ago out of Birdseye Maple and walnut. All those pieces are cut at a 5 degree angle so when I put them together they fit together closer.

Good looking piece!
I like the user name, by the way. Is that a Mystery Men reference?

Nice board! I just finished a checker board. I was wondering how you made the checkers?

Well done. It has a lot of warm character to it.

I made a dowel with a lathe and sanded it while on the lathe, then cut it up into pieces with a band saw and sanded the band saw cut. Then I used spray polyurethane to finish them.
