I’m still going to post my projects but this will be the last vertical chess board that I’m going to post – it is made from pine and the wood is burnt – then I put 7 coats of hand rub tung oil and 5 coats of hand rub poly – please note that there is no stain on the wood. I have the bottom drawer that still needs to be fitted then it is up on the wall.

Once the wood is burnt and the tung oil is added the wood takes on a golden brown color. If anyone is going to make a vertical chess board you need to know that it takes 2 weeks to make just 1 so make a batch of 5 or 6 at a time which will only add a day or 2 to the build then sell them or give them away to family as gifts for x-mass

I’m going to keep posting items that I build but it will be the last vertical chess board that I’m going to post. I have a hall tree on the way, I’ve completed the prototype in burnt wood but I want to make changes to some areas of the bench, for example I did half lap joints on the bench side’s and front and I do not think that they will stand the test of time – so I’m going to make them with mortise and tenon joints

Cool idea (I didn’t catch your previous posts) and nicely finished.
