Hi … the center game squares are individual pieces of dyed leather executed by Russ Heath of Heath’s Restoration in Connecticutt. We routed the recess, finished the top and sent it off to him to inlay with the leather. He did a beautiful job including the gold tooling on the border … i think there is about 135 hrs in this project so far including making the brass moldings and foot details ( ‘turning brass on a wood lathe’ and ‘cutting brass on the cnc router’ posts on my blog) from scratch, but not including Russ’s labor on the checkerboard. The hinge mechanism was interesting and challenging …
