Sorry for the bad picture. I found this on my computer. This was the first big project I ever did. It was designed around the marble chess board that my girlfriend bought me in Mexico. I did this in my high school shop class and used all pieces of scrap that I found in my grandpap’s shop. The drawer is actually just a fold down face that has the chess pieces in it. The middle comes out and can be made with a 1/4” thick ply or something. I didn’t know what I was doing. Overall it looks okay though.

A piece that needs to be handed down through the generations as the first piece great great grandpa did!

A great start, but your latest work is at a whole different level. It’s always interesting to see earlier works and to watch a craftsman perfect his skills.

Really Nice Table!

I like the tapered legs. Gives it a “Shaker” look.
