Nice chess board. Never use it. Just keep the memory of your Dad. That’s priceless.

Indeed it is . Thank you karson. I keep his last wallet, cards, ss card, pics and an audio cd with his last words in it. I dont think i’ll ever use it as a game piece.

what a lovely way to store the treasures! Very nice indeed.
I might just have to make something special to hold the little things that I saved that were my husbands.

I find the wood to be somewhat close in color, thus taking away the checker board look that one is use to seeing, yet beautiful. Nice job.
