My # 1 request at craft fairs … “do you make chess boards?” So I made a bunch just to answer the question and (hopefully) allow people to buy them.
These all did sell, though they didn’t sell quickly. That was fine by me … until the last one sold. Now I have to make another batch, or I’m going to be hearing the question all over again.
- 1: Black Walnut & Hard Maple, with a Goncalo Alves border.
- 2: Padauk & Honey Locust, with a Cherry border.
- 3: Mahogany & White Oak, with a Black Walnut border.
- 4 & 5: 200-year-old Redwood & White Oak, with a Bloodwood accent & White Oak border.
All feature 2” squares. #s 1 – 3 are approximately 18” square. # 4 was 20” square.
