I wanted to pick up a hobby. So I started building everything. But I have a passion for chess. So naturally I had to make my first chess board. It is all maple with a mahogany base. Each square is individual. And the grains alternate. I hope to make my own pieces soon. The board is 100% recycled wood from scraps.
