A chess box 14-1/2” square, from a plan in Woodworker’s Journal. Each square is doweled to the next in an independent grid set on a frame mortised into the mahogany outer frame, and two drawers for the purchased chess pieces ride on side runners. It was for this project I had to buy a drill press, as all those four-square dowel connections had to be quite precise. It’s about six years old now, and has seen lots of chess tournaments and competition among my son’s friends, nephews and nieces.
