Another older project.
A friend at work commissioned this for her Husband.. a chess fanatic.
The legs and apron and border are New Guinea Rosewood… the board is Silver Ash and NGR with surround and inlay of QS Silky Oak,,, the inserts are proud of the table. Again M and T joinery with timber buttons to hold the top on the leg assembly.

I like your style of designing things taking the wood effect into consideration.
A rare talent.

very nice…I just picked up one of my dad’s old chess boards…he passed away in January and this looks like a good way to incorporate it into a project…

A fine piece of work. Every works well together, the woods, colors and design.
