My daughter-in-law’s step dad saw a chess board I made for my son’s wedding and wanted me to make him one for a chess set he had lying around.

Board is Walnut and Maple
Base is made from Mahogany with a touch of Wenge as an accent.

Very nice work. Love the chess set. Also really like the drawer where every piece has it’s own spot. Thanks for posting it.

Thanks all…

For a finish, I rubbed in three coats of Boiled Linseed oil followed by three coats of wax.
