Chessboard Table I made my Junior year in High School for a state competition that I made the finals for. The table is made out of black walnut, oak and maple. The chessboard is maple and black walnut, the border around the chessboard is oak, the legs are oak and the pedestal is black walnut turned on a lathe. The contrast between the maple and walnut in the chessboard draws your attention instantly to it and then to the walnut pedestal that contrasts the oak legs.

Vote for me in the Yin Yang Contest!!!
