This is the Chess board I built after Christmas. I love it. I had to use all of my new tools. I also had to do some precise measureing so that the squrares would match up (even though they don’t exactly in some places). If anyone has advice in makeing one with no gaps beteween squares I am open for advice. The picture that is on the right has a finish of aresol spray clear satinl lacquer. (It works pretty nicely, although it has a little yellow color, although it gives it a nice warm color.
-Squares- Purpleheart, and Maple that is 1 3/4 inches
-Frame- Maple, resawn to about 3/8 of an inch
