Walnut Chess Table and Chairs

Years ago I had built this game table for my chess set. Years down the road I decided it was time to have some chairs to go along with it. I used the same design that I used on the other chairs I have built but the back rests on them varied. I wouldn’t exactly call this an inlay job but it’s close. The wood I chose was walnut and tiger maple (aka: figurative maple).

Holy Smokes doesn’t quite convey the sentiment Tom, but you get the idea !!!
Excellent work. It looks beautiful!

Beautiful Tom. I like the shaping on the back rest. Nice work. Do you have more pictures of just the table? It looks pretty sweet too :)

Beautiful craftsmanship. Very nice. The chairs work well with the table.

Thanks one and all for taking the time to look at my work! I hope to have some time this weekend to write a little something about myself and post it.
