This was a job for a very good friend who is obsessed with chess.
It’s like guys I know who play golf they get crazy with it. So what to do?
Charge him for a custom table….He’ll pay….He’s obsessed right?
No, all kidding aside this was very difficult to get right. I hope it’s still
right….Folding legs are not easy to make with any confidence of longevity
it would seem. Anyone with a good system that sort of Locks into place would
be good to know for the future. I used Rockler locking type and was ok but would
Like something that is a solid lock in for each leg or work in conjunction with each other
when they lock in.
Chess boards are another pain in the b**t. My advise. When making the 2” x 1/8” x 16” (or whatever size)
make them a bit longer or one at the end wider just a bit in case the there’s a size issue
fitting it in the area. Creep up on it I guess. This is my second chess table which I put a pic of the
first on this post.
