It’s a great chest set. All that work shows many hours of enjoyment. The drawers are a nice addition.

Glad to see you back Branch. Great Chess set and I bet it took a lot of time.
I’m sure your customer will be very happy.
Thanks for sharing.

Excellent job, Branch! I’m guessing the board itself is maple & walnut, and framed w/ oak; correct? What woods did you use for the pieces?
