This was a chess table I made for my design studio last year. It could be said this is my first major woodworking project that required skill and joinery (previous projects are from when i was a kid and include a bike ramp and a garden planter box, both made from cheap plywood and a handsaw to try things out). If I had to do it over i would change a couple minor things and I would practice more on the mortise and tenon joints I had to cover up… lets just say wood choice might have prevented me from doing the best I could do here.
The darker wood is Brazilian Cherry (Jatoba) and the lighter wood is Maple.
And no, unfortunately I didnt turn the chess pieces. It was my intention to make a chess set that went with the style of the table but due to time and monetary constraints it wasnt possible.
