It has two hundred and twenty eight parts. the woods are walnut, hard maple, brideye maple, yellow hart, cherry, mahogany, oak, hackbeery, ebony, and mineral stained maple. The wood is 1-1/2 inch to 1/2 inck thick, mounted on a 1/4 inch plywood backboard. It is 4 foot by 5 foot long. It has 7 coats of clear gloss lacquer for a finnish. It took over a month to make from start to finnish. The second pic. is the mate to the set. It is the same size. All comments welcome. Thanks for looking.

We have a casting of one in the museum where I work. Other than that…..excellent job! It’s really cool to see it in wood.
