Made this one last week for the show this weekend. On top of the rooks is a ‘Galax” leaf for which this show (and the town) are named. A really pretty area…3,000-5,000 mountain peaks within a 10-15 minute bike ride including the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Kings about 6.5” tall…pawns 3” tall. Solid Maple and Walnut, although the chessboard is Walnut and Red Oak, about 25” square. I thought I was buying maple, but the oak was stuck in the Maple pile and to me, (very) rough cut, they look kind of similar, but it makes the board look a little bit brighter which I kind of like.
