Finished this a couple days before my son’s birthday and just haven’t been home to post it yet. He asked over Christmas if I could make him a chess board and set. I figured I might have it done by his birthday and came in just under the wire.
Not much I can say that I didn’t put into the blog. Case is walnut, drawers are cherry, snap in and are held with magnets. The pieces are maple and walnut, designed one morning in powerpoint.
This was a fun project, and I am pretty thrilled with how it turned out. I put it on my desk at work to show a fellow woodworker, and it ended up being a bit of good fortune I wasn’t in my office much that day as it brougt a steady stream of visitors through to look it over and take pictures.
I haven’t been home enough to play even one game yet, but am hoping to remedy that situation this weekend.
