Yesterday I was working on a faucet for my favorite customer , Mrs. Hoang, and she asked me if I could make her a hard board with a frame around it so she could make a solid Chinese Chess game board. She and her husband play a lot and she had this hard to use plastic folded sheet and a cardboard game board that she painted to resemble the real thing. So I built her this board last night with an oak frame and a hardboard insert that is removable for her to draw it out on.
I think she really liked it. I told her I would take her picture with it and it will be around the world before the day is done!!
The 5th shot is how one side of a Chinese Chess board is set up with the king, protectors, cannons and knights, etc..
I just added a 6th photo after she finished the painting…................Jim
