My BIL found some chess pieces for sale and asked me to make a board for him. The base has a felt lined drawer on each side to hold the ceramic pieces when not in use.

Materials used: wenge, curly maple, mahogany, and padauk.

What does everyone think?

It’s a great board and you have certainly done a fine job on it.
