These are the first two projects that I have completed since I got out of the hospital. At the end of August I was admitted with severe narcotizing pancreatitis. I was in the hospital for a total of 28 days, now I’m on the mend and am able to get back into the shop :)

I was asked to make a chessboard by a friend, it is made with walnut and birds eye maple I loosely followed Steve Ramsey's chessboard video. The chess pieces were purchased from Amazon.

The cutting board is made from mahogany, maple and Peruvian walnut. This board was inspired by Sinister's blog.

Very nice work on both pieces. The Sinister board is a tough glue up for sure!!

Both amazing pieces. Glad to hear you are on the mend. That is a tough illness to recover from. You get well and keep up the work in the shop.

@hotncold Yeah the glue up on the cutting board was challenging.

@wseand Thanks the doctors don’t even know what caused the pancreatitis. On the plus side I have lost 57lbs, I just don’t recommend losing it that way :)

Glad you made it home from the hospital ok. Your chess board came out fantastic! I like that you have a place to store the pieces. Very nice work!

Here is a better picture of the chessboard.

MontanaBob that is a very nice looking chessboard where did you get the pieces, did you make them?
