This is a chess table and stool set that I made a while back for my three girls. It is made out of maple & walnut with a full extension drawer to store the pieces in. I used the Lee Valley flocking kit to line the drawer. The stools are from an old “Wood” magazine. The stool legs were my first real attempt at making matching items on the lathe. (notice there isn’t a close up picture of the legs)
Anyways it was fun to do and gets lots of use.

Beautiful. The maple has a really nice figure, and I dig the walnut accent squares around the corners.

Nice build, you did a great job. The full extension drawer is a nice touch.
