This is my first attempt at designing and building a chess table. The checkered top is made of hard maple and walnut. The basic table structure is made from cherry, stained a brown maple and finished with 5 coats of a wipe on polyurethane. The checkered top is floating in the cherry frame to allow for expansion and contraction. The first top was too tight and it cracked the frame when the humidity subsided so needless to say I had to remake the top with a floating feature like a panel in a door.
