I’ve made one each for my 3 son’s – this one is made from cherry and oak the other two were made from all oak. All three chess games are made from scrap pallets that I take home from work, the only thing that I paid for is the chess pieces. I’ve made each one a little different so they are very special just like my son’s.

Neat idea. I think it would take a game or two to get used to vertical playing field.

Hi Chris
It is a nice piece of wall art that gets people talking. It does not take as much time to get use to playing as you would think. My son and his girlfriend or his room mate will take up to a week to play one game.
