chess board i made for a friend for his bday….I made it out of a sandwich of plywood solid wood and veneer….the top is solid maple and walnut so it can be refinished if it gets really scratched up with use.I dont use veneer really so it has one or two tinny chips missing and its far from perfect but I think its ok for a first time. I finished it with shellac and wax.

-- take your time

This came out very nice, now you’ve got to make the chess pieces. Unwritten woodworking law.
