It has been 3 + years since I made the Paris chess set with my scroll saw and I thought it was time to make a chest for housing it with a view to selling it at a Christmas Craft fair.
I have used a mixture of solid oak and oak veneers with a kingwood inlay on the top.
On an earlier model I made for another set, there was an issue of the pieces rattling a bit when the top half hinged over to reveal the board, I have addressed this and by reducing the depth of the 2 halves this problem has been solved.
The board is made with sycamore and walnut veneer
