This is a chessboard I made as a gift for my father who is a golf fanatic. The chessboard is made of quilted maple and claro walnut. The frame is quartersawn white oak. The finish is tung oil with polyurethane topcoat.
The chesspieces are called the “History of Golf” chess pieces from Studio Anne Carlton.
Getting the polyurethane finish on this glossy smooth and free of air bubbles just might have been the most frustrating experience of my life. I am saving my money for an HVLP sprayer so I never have to brush on poly again!
