This is basically a vertical chess board meant to be hung in an areas that will inspire anyone to play as they meander by. Great for office areas, waiting rooms, etc… I was inspired to build one after seeing them on display at a local festival by a company call Straight Up Chess(http://www.straightupchess.com/). After seeing them I had to have one. The chess pieces are actually from this company since I did not have the time, talent or patience to make them myself. They did a great job and I encourage everyone to visit his web site.
The frame is figure maple (Jacobean stain) and the board itself in maple and padauk. There are two pieces not shown in the pictures, Last move and Check. They fit over the shelves.
