Chess board made of walnut and maple with some mahogany. A christmas present for my nephew.
Thanks for viewing.

Nice. I’m currently working on a similar one for my daughter. I just glued up my top last night. What are the dimensions you used?

That’s a nice one. Good work.

The Sawstop is pretty amazing. I’m glad the injury wasn’t very severe.
