So believe it or not I found curley Oak at Home Depot. There wasn’t too much of it so I decided to make a base for my chest set. The pieces or Basswood and Rosewood the board is Oak and Walnut on the base is Walnut and Oak

The knights are beautiful, did you carve them by hand? Nice choice of wood for the pieces, well done.
