This is a chess board that I built for my Brother who lives in Rhode Island. He has a nice chess set made of pewter and was looking foe a nice board with a storage compartment.

It’s constructed of NA Walnut and white Birch. I made the cove in the sides with the my table saw.

I apologize for the pictures. Good news is I did got a new DSLR camera for Christmas and future postings should have better photos.

Looks great!

One of my sons got a nice set of chess pieces for Christmas and I need to make him a board with storage. I may have to get some info from you.

Good work.

Guy
That is a beautiful looking board you have build for your brother.
The coving,corner spline ,hinges and lining are nice details that make this piece something to be cherished for many years.
Very well done Buddy
