Walnut and Maple Chess Board

This chessboard is made of solid walnut and maple and finished with High Gloss Polyurethane No veneers were used to make this chess board. The squares are made of 1/2 inch pieces and are left visible underneath to show the solid construction. The border is made using a layering process then routed to give a decorative profile and separate the colors.

Never toss out the small pieces.
