This was my first project more than 20 years ago, did a little wood working for awhile then life got in the way. I was able to slow down and get back into it and build a new shop, looking forward to many new first projects. The wood is Walnut and Ash, I made it for, some pewter and bronze chess pieces I bought in 1975, of the characters from the “Hobbit”. Never new back then how popular they would become.

Chess pieces added.

A very nice pc. I just completed two boards that were designed by David Marks. I put them in a game room we made inour facility dedicated to a co-worker killed recently. Nice job!
