What do you guys think? This is a chess table that I made in high school, 30 years ago. The main parts are made of cherry and the chess top is made from maple and walnut.
I spent most of my time in high school in the wood shop with a wonderful teacher Mr. Boettler. Like any good teacher he gave us good instruction and than let us develop the skills on are own. As I look at the piece today I can see many things that I would have done diffintly if I was to build it today. My question is should I rebuild it or should I leave it as is. This was a gift that I made for my Father and has a great deal of sentimental value so I don’t want to move it to some back room (like I have with a few projects). But yet each time I pass it I think “Looks like a carpenter build that” What would you do?
