I made a custom chess table with two drawers for some close friends of mine. I made the table and border out of cherry. It was piece of 10qtr cherry that I found at a local lumber yard. The chess table itself is made of hard maple and walnut. I created little sections in the drawers for their chess pieces and lined it with green felt. I used loose mortise joinery on the table base and hand cut my dovetails for the drawers.
They wanted a very basic stain with a satin finish. The table came out so flat and so smooth. As an added gift. I am making a video from start to finish on how I made the entire piece. (shortened to about 7 minutes long). I can’t wait to give it to them.
Thanks for looking!
