I made this as a gift to my youngest brother who was just married in July. I actually had it completed for the wedding! It is made up of black walnut with the checkers being formed out of maple and walnut in .115” strips. It stands just over 8 inches tall. I used the porcelin crush/grind mechanism which is adjusted for grind from below. It’s funny to see people look at it closely and try to figure out how it is made. Very simple really, just time consuming!

THAT is very cool. I love it. If you think about it, if it took you a month to make it, it will be used for a life time.

-- Have a great day.
