now before anything i would just like to say that i got this design from a similar table on this site. i forgot the gentelmens name but i will find it. i liked it allot and i love chess so i made a few changes and chose mohagony and maple as the woods to be used in this project. i enjoyed this project verry much.

I really like the way the drawer pull echoes the table top. This is a nice piece of furniture.

Thanks for the post.

I like your table a lot Mike. To me, it looks simple but very elegant too. Good job. And good job on the photos too.

Very nice job. I plane on making this table, I found a plan in pop woodworking I think.

I like the idea of having the chess board as part of a table, even if you didn’t play chess the piece would look good in any room, nicely done.

Thanks for the inspiration. My younger son loves to play chess and would really like a permanent place to play. I really liked the choice of woods. How did you assemble to the top?

That came out very nice. Any plans to carve or turn a set of chess pieces to go with it?

Hi Mike

Nice looking table. You did a beautiful job on it. Top and handle matching is a nice touch. Thanks for posting.
