Walnut and maple chessboard, built in 1998. I made this with and for my son, who was 12 at the time.
This is the only piece that I’ve built from a plan (Woodsmith #83).
One of my pet peeves is the disappoint people show when they marvel at the carving on the chess pieces and I have to explain that I purchased those and didn’t carve them. So…don’t ask about the pieces!
