A project that turned out to be far trickier than I thought it would be. Don’t get a microscope on it will you?

Pine body, mahogany and beech board, hickory plinth. Dimensions in millimetres: 343 square at then base X 145 high. Comes complete with timber draughts and plastic chess people.

Not as bad as it could have been.
