My daughter-in-law asked for a wall hung chess board as a Christmas gift to her brother. She mentioned that she had seen these on web and they were pricey. Her brother has a very nice set of chess pieces that will be displayed on the board. Chess pieces are just shy of 3” tall and most pieces have 1” base. Board squares are 3 1/8” x 3 1/8”. Shelves are 2 1/4”w plexiglass that fit nicely in a saw kerf.
The board is oak and walnut with a low-luster tung oil finish. I’ve installed a french cleat for hanging the board to the wall.
