This is a coffee table I made for my Granddad. The one he used in his living room was a cheap mdf veneered thin and was looking pretty rough. He was always a big chess player and loved the game. I started making this chess set for him back last summer. I wanted to use it as his Christmas gift last year. He had been fighting the battle against cancer and was in the hospital Christmas day when I gave it to him. We didn’t get to play a game on it, but I’ll never forget him looking each of the pieces over with that little grin on his face. He passed away the very next day. Im sure Ill get to have that game with him later on. We sure do miss him.
